just a few hours in Istanbul, Turkey 🇹🇷 – By Lungi

The world is open once more and I’m formally again exterior! In April we went on a Euro journey which included a deliberate, lengthy lay over in Istanbul, Turkey. We discovered good flights on Turkish Airways and we have been going to go previous Istanbul anyway, it made sense to see town. it was such a whirlwind 12 hours after a 9 hour flight from Johannesburg.

I didn’t know something in any respect about Istanbul + Turkey earlier than going, fortunately my sister had been just a few occasions so I used to be very happy to observe her lead.

We arrived in Istanbul at round 06:00 and our flight to Paris was boarding at 19:20 that night so we had simply over 12 hours. We booked on the Miss Istanbul Resort so we may catch some few hours of sleep and refresh earlier than heading out into the Metropolis.

We had a jam packed day however Istanbul site visitors mentioned no! Getting anyplace simply took an excessive amount of time so we ended up solely going to Ortaköy to discover, go on a cruise on the Bosphorus River and have lunch.

The taxi driver who took us to Ortaköy tried to rip-off us by saying we hadn’t given him sufficient cash to pay for our journey and needed us to pay extra! Fortunately we managed to get our method out of it, but it surely left an excellent bitter style in my mouth.

The resort was lovely however the breakfast was horrible by way of choice, I used to be so disillusioned as a result of resort breakfast is actually my favorite meal ever!
Ortaköy is sort of a waterfront outside area with outlets and eating places in addition to a Mosque. It was a wonderful place to discover.
Bosphorus river cruise, istanbul, turkey
The boat cruise on the Bosphorus gave us an opportunity to see a bit extra of Istanbul than we’d’ve seen in our quick time area. Do you know that the Bosphorus river separates the Asian aspect from the European aspect of Turkey? So cool.
The restaurant was lovely and had nice views however the meals and drinks didn’t fairly hit the spot sadly. The menu was simply so scant and the meal that we finally selected wasn’t nice.

The 12 hours we spent in Istanbul didn’t give me the inclination to return to the Metropolis for an extended time sadly. Suffice to say it received’t be occurring my bucket record.
