We've had a busy past month, and are now just catching up. We have had friends Graeme & Marian Vessey from Australia, come cruising with us for a week. Returning from the one-week cruise, we flew to Istanbul with them for 3 days, and after they flew back to Australia, we then took a tour of Gallipoli and Troy, only …

Despite swallowing a fish bone or two they were pretty amazing - a good start the great food we had over the coming days. The next morning we made it in to the blue mosque, named after the hand designed tiles that covered the walls inside the prayer area. After ...
