After delayed start and a long flt we finally made it to Turkey. Had some good turbulence during our meal that scared aome of the flight attendants. I've had worse. We blew the meal selection as when we bought our tickets they had meal selections and apparently they were for special diets and what we selected was not nearly as good as the rest of …

The visit of 2 Palaces

A travel blog entry by erinwarwick


... family had lived at Topkapi Palace ( I am seeing that later). The medieval TopkPi was lacking contemporary style, luxury and comfort, so Abdul,Euclid decided to build a new modern palace.

I went to the first place that I saw and ordered a "durum" (or wrap), I was given a small wrap, filled with "tavuk (chicken) doner, ...

A travel blog entry by nigel.terrea


... nothing at all about it.

That night we ate free dinner at the hostel and felt like we needed to venture to a pub that we read about. This pub was unique because it had a beer tap at every table which allowed guests to serve themselves at their own convenience. It was definitely a place for Nigel more so than Terrea because as we all know she prefers her wine!
