Istanbul... was Constantinople

A travel blog entry by lizcrone on May 06, 2014

Sitting on the border between Asia and Europe with a bridge connecting the two continents, Istanbul is a wonderfully vibrant city with such diversity among its people and streets! Mosques seem to be on every second corner with their minarets doting the sky and their calls to prayer heard from every corner of the city throughout the day and night. …

SMALL FISH IN A BIG TURKEY

... and he became very happy when I said, "Tebrikler!" (Congratulations!) He said his girlfriend wasn't traveling with him because her father would become "kızgın" (angry) due to "adet" (the custom).
He dropped me off in Araç, a village of 6000. He said, "Özleyorum Araç." (I miss Araç.)
Ramadan would be ending today. Ersin and millions of Turks were traveling from their ...

Spring Has Sprung

... close to our present-day house. Shots were heard, and in the chaos that followed, 35-45 people died (not sure how this figure is unclear) and hundreds more were injured. As one would imagine, this date now carries the weight of those deaths, and is less of a jubilant event than something like Labor Day in the States is.

2013 was our fourth May in Turkey: we'd been in Istanbul for that first May Day (2010), but out of ...

... Piña Colada! After a couple of drinks we head back to our hotel to get ready for our Saturday night out. We headed off to dinner in Bebek as recommended by friends. We had dinner at Poseidon Fish restaurant. The restaurant was set on the water and the views were amazing. We ordered fish meze, sea bass and bottle of the local wine. Everything tasted divine! Everywhere we went we saw everyone drinking the famous Raki. So Nicole ordered a round of Raki to try. I remembered ...

5 days in Istanbul, Turkey

A travel blog entry by eczyl

... first mosque I have been inside & I felt really awed by the atmosphere of people so devoted in their religions. Last day, met up with Pelin & Sophia whom I met last year during work and travel. Both girls are so friendly and hospitable! Next time when I'm going back to turkey, will definitely contact them and stay with them to really experience the local culture! Turkey as a whole left a memorable impression on me as the culture is so unique. Definitely coming back to this ...

    Located on the continuation of Istiklal (Independence) Avenue in Beyoglu this hostel was wonderfully located- an easy walk across the Galata bridge to see the areas home to the Grand Bazaar and the Blue Mosque but also perfect for wandering Beyoglu and finding bars and restaurants hidden in its back streets. The only thing I would say is the walk from the bus stop at Taksim square proved to be quite a hike with our bulky backpacks on. The staff were great and very helpful and the free breakfast was delicious and included home made orange jam/ marmalade! Security was good and we were able to meet a number of other travellers from around the world.
