Turkish Airlines to Istanbul

A travel blog entry by mxcna78

Make sure you get your Turkish visa ahead of time! In the months leading up to this trip, I had checked the Turkish visa requirements for US Citizens. It was my understanding that a visa would be required but that it would be issued at the airport. Long story short, we almost missed our flight attempting to process our visa at LAX with a faulty website. We were told that we would not be able to board the plane until we provided Turkish ...

All the highlights of the old town

When you come across an Istanbul Protest - Day 5

A travel blog entry by edabaja


... Atatürk on them, and loud car horns! The protest was anti-government and was pro- opposing party, people were rallying for a change in how their current government is operating. It was incredibly fun and entertainingly, but I have to admit, I was a bit scared. There were no police, but I'm sure if there were, it would get ugly. Tear gas, water cannons, and bats are commonly used to quell these sorts of demonstrations. I think the ...
