Team Turkey’s Travel Diary

Monday, 04 Aug 2008

Location: Istanbul, Turkey

MapAfter spending three days recovering from jetlag and seeing the wonderful sights of Istanbul with our expert guide (!) we are heading off on our big adventure. We are travelling on an overnight train to Ankara and then onto Capadocia by bus.

In Istanbul we have seen the massive, awesome, 1,500 year-old Aya Sophia, the Blue Mosque and other ancient landmarks and buildings in the hippodrome.

On Saturday night we went into the middle of the city (Taksim) and went to a meze (small dishes) resteraunt on the most famous eating street in Istanbul. There were an unbelievable amount of people just walking around and enjoying the night air. We reckon about 2 million!!
