    Initial concerns about where we where going to stay were laid to rest when we walked through the door. The greeting welcome set the scene for what was a great stay experience. The location to the key 'must see' attractions is an added bonus. We will be back

    We arrived in Turkey expecting to spend a few days in Istanbul but ended up fast tracking our trip down south as we were staying just off Taksim square where the mining disaster protests/riots were taking place. Protests of any kind in Turkey are apparently illegal so the police quickly shut down the protests with tear gas making exploring the area at night near impossible without a gas mask.

    We did manage to fit in an afternoon of some ...

    Exploring Istanbul

    ... cruise boat, its 6pm and we're shattered. Following Umut closely we brave the busy Metro from Eminönü to Laleli University station, a 2 minute walk from the hotel. This quick mode of transport is the true Istanbul experience and only cost 3TL (about £1), a fun experience if you don't mind getting your bum grabbed haha.

    After a tasty dinner at the restaurant next door, we all pack our day bags ready for our Gallipoli trip tomorrow!

    ... bus. They made a stop before we got an hr I to the trip, and picked up about 25 French high school students. I also now have a seatmate. She is about 65, and is in full Turkish wear,....Including the head covering. She of course doesn't speak a word of English, but we have shared the the international language of a 'smile'.
    I'm going to close my eyes now, and allow the rocking of this bus to lull me to sleep. See you in Cappadocia ...

    ... and they should be prepared for them to shoot first and ask no questions if a hijack was ever to happen. Can you see why I may be nervous? Instead of wearing the t-shirt saying "Keep Calm and Carry On" I should be wearing the t-shirt "I Can't Keep Calm because you keep telling me terrifying stories about Africa". But the funny thing to note is that no one telling me these stories has actually been to Africa themselves;although I ...
