      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.

      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. …

      Today our tour officially began with a orientation tour of the city of Istanbul. We walked up to Topkapi Palace and then to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. These 3 attraction are all very close to each other. I will be going back to Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sophia after the tour ends when I have some more extra days. We also went to the Egyptian Bazaar (Spice Market). I did not get to see all of it ...

      ... me yesterday. The guys were pointing to each other and beckoning me to repeat the lines, they called friends whilst pushing the phone to my ear and whispering instructions--it was absolutely hilarious. Even now I have no idea what I said to the strangers, but it must not have been very nice because they all hung up on me. It turned out to be completely harmless though because eventually each person I called showed up to the gathering in the street ...

      We arrived at our hotel at around 3pm and had a short time to check in before embarking on a walking tour of Istanbul. It was a bleak, wet, cold day but that didn't stop us. We walked to the Burnt Column, erected by Constantine to celebrate the designation of Constantinople as the new capital of the Roman Empire. Next the Basilica Cistern, the amazing ...

      Turkey - ancient ruins, mosques and apple tea

      ... have been so much better especially as an Australian.  When we flew back to Istanbul Ramadan was on, so the traffic was crazy. The driving in Istanbul is already terrifying, but having the car weave in and out of traffic like a mad man was a whole new experience. The driving in Istanbul reminds me of the driving in Bali, expect that in Bali they very rarely have accidents and in Istanbul they do. We saw one happen on our first day!  Our hotel had a beauty salon downstairs, so the ...
