Just waiting for R to finish his bath so that we can go down for a meeting with the rest of the group – we're meeting up with the guides who are taking us through the rest of Turkey. We’ve spent the day having a quick look round some of the main attractions of Istanbul. The hotel is quite a …

Last night by the Aegean

A travel blog entry by paulej4


Last night at the Sundown Bar over still another $20 bottle of Anakena Cabernet--the best bargain on the ship--the early conversation was--as it almost always is--about travel. I was asked about how many countries I had visited and, adding Crete to the list, it is now, by checking places off on the master list published by the Travelers Century …

Arrived dark and early

A travel blog entry by davidwshih


The flight from Shanghai was suppose to be 12 hours. We arrived 1.5 hours early at 4:20AM. I wish all my Beijing and Shanghai flights are like this. It was a great overnight flight after we took off on time at 10:45PM, a meal was served and then it was sleep time. I was in business class and it was a complete flat bed. I slept a 7 or 8 hours and …

Red Eye

The day has finally come. I think this is one of few times where I planned far in advance for a vacation. Our family is getting together to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary.

    (Note - this was a July 2010 experience) We booked this hotel primarily because it was a Marriott property (using free points) and because it was handy to the airport. While expecting (and experiencing) normal Marriott-level quality, we were not expecting anything exceptional. We were very pleasantly surprised - the airport shuttle delivered us (free) to the hotel, all employees were very friendly and helpful, and we were lucky enough to sit on a second-story veranda at dinner, overlooking a traditional Turkish Wedding rehearsal party poolside. The rooms were very nice; highly recommended for a nice respite near the airport (While the hotel is great, we did not use this as a touring base, as it is not handy to the city)
