Travel Blogs from Istanbul
This trip was special, because my younger brother and his wife, Sue, joined my wife and I on this journey. The ship, the Marco Polo (Orient Lines), used to be owned by a Russian company when its name was the Alexandr Pushkin. It's a double-hulled ship that I later cruised on to Antarctica in January of 2005. The Marco Polo was retired from service …
So after the whirlwind missions of getting everything done in time I finally made it to Istanbul; the place seemed pretty cool but I only had enough time to get to the shopping mall before crashing out. The following day I depart for the ship.
AVOID THE IBIS HOTEL @ AIRPORT!!! We have to sleep there 'cause our flight but avoid if it's possible. Thanks to ATLASJET that change our flight (from nite flight to previuos) for only €2,5 each!
... forward to the return leg. A 3am pick up from the hotel for the flight Istanbul to Rome, then Rome to HongKong, then Hong Kong to Sydney, then Sydney to Brisbane. And before you ask, yes, Digby was in charge of flights. Hopefully at some stage in the past month reading the blog you got a laugh and shared some of our all time favourite moments.
Your written exam will be forwarded under separate email! See you all soon xo
... and some of the group who had imagined it to be always hot here were feel very uncomfortable.
On our way back to the hotel our Tour Manager Urg pointed out the railway station which is under reconstruction made famous by the Orient Express.(a place to investigate tomorrow)
That was the days trips over- In the evening we strolled the streets around the hotel -had a bit to eat, a beer and relaxed. We were on holiday.
