... markets and restaurants........nothing was open!! Well, it was a nice walk anyway. I ended up going over to the Blue Mosque and walked around this precinct for a bit. I then went to the only pub in the district for a beer and the hope of making some friends. Travelling on your own makes you go out and meet people as it can be as it can be a bit lonely at times. I was lucky enough to meet Judy-Ann and her husband Alex. They are ex-pats living in Kuwait as Alex ...

For us in Turkey, a good guide book and a Tom-Tom was all we wanted and all we ...
... man in the park stood quietly motionless. Trace and I looked around us utterly confused, but not wanting to disturb the stagnant atmosphere we joined in. It dawned on us it was Remembrance Day; this is probably not the reason for this united act of respect here and now, but we chose for it to be. We were in Turkey, in a city full of life, where the most Australian men died in War efforts. I felt more energy in this stationary moment than when I was trying to cross the ...
