Old Habits Die Hard, and: Cat Heaven

A travel blog entry by ellengoeseast


... long before the flight, the gate was bound to be quiet. Wrong. Because the gate had to be used for half a dozen other flights before mine, I wasn't even allowed near it. I was now pretty much stuck in no man's land, except that there were too many people there.

And they were loud. And they were smoking (!). And kids were crying. And I was hungry. And thirsty. And exhausted. And I felt myself slowly but surely slipping out of the ...

Traditional Turkish Hamam

A travel blog entry by jspence

A hundred times over. The lovely lights on the street and the tower, the somewhat hazardous walk up the dark, circling ...

Labouring in Istanbul - it's a riot!!

A travel blog entry by chris-roisin


Our next port of call, Istanbul is 1118 nautical miles from Civitavecchia and there were 2 sea days before arrival. Time for some relaxation and catching up on my blog while Roisin tried to catch up on topping up her tan!!!

The route took us down the Tyrrhenian Sea where we passed the Island of Stromboli off the North coast of Sicily. Stromboli is one of 3 active volcanoes in Italy, the other 2 being Etna, on Sicily itself, and Vesuvius over shadowing the Bay of ...
