Day 10 – Foca – Pergamum – Selcuk (Nov 20)

TURKEY | Saturday, 21 Nov 2015 | Views [181]

We ended up at a restaurant last night recommended by our hotel. It was basic fare – grilled sea bass which was perfect. Thom thought it needed some spices but it was prepared really well. Thom got the half with the spine/bones. I  got the ... Read more >

Day 8 – Cappadocia (Nov 18)

TURKEY | Thursday, 19 Nov 2015 | Views [164]

Today was a slower day, finally. I slept in until the sound of balloons overhead got us up around 7. There were much fewer today, perhaps because it was fairly cold, at 32deg when we got up. It was probably a bit colder when the balloons took off around ... Read more >

Day 6 – Cappadocia

TURKEY | Monday, 16 Nov 2015 | Views [141] | Comments [1]

We were awoken by the sound of the burner needed to keep a hot air balloon flying!! I dressed and went out on the balcony and there were dozens and more hot air balloons above Goreme/Cappadocia. The view of them has me thinking, or rethinking, taking ... Read more >


Day 5 – Istanbul to Cappadocia

TURKEY | Monday, 16 Nov 2015 | Views [183]

Even though we explored the way to the bus stop it was still a bit of a haul with the luggage. The hill up to Taksim Square seemed to have gotten a lot steeper going up it for the first time!!! We got to the bus with a few minutes to spare and then got ... Read more >

Day 3 - Istanbul

TURKEY | Saturday, 14 Nov 2015 | Views [162]

We ended up having a slower start today. Maybe from all the walking it was time to rest a bit. Wednesday was 22,500 step day and Thursday was 23,000+. Tired feet. We wandered down the hill to get the T1 tram back into Sultehamet to see the Topkapi ... Read more >


Day 2 – Istanbul

TURKEY | Saturday, 14 Nov 2015 | Views [173]

Started out early again to catch the 8:40 ferry to the Princes Islands as we didn’t want to delay until the next ferry at 10:40. It’s a 90 min ride with stops at several of the smaller islands. It was sunny and a bit hazy so photos aren’... Read more >

TURKEY | Thursday, 12 Nov 2015 | Views [216]

Well, Day 1 in Istanbul. It’s nearly 10:30pm and it’s been a long day. So long that we got back to the flat and were too beat to go out for dinner. Thom went to a neighborhood place for a few things, stuffed eggplant, stuffed peppers and ... Read more >

Telephony and planning

USA | Saturday, 7 Nov 2015 | Views [117]

Alright, I messed up on my overall planning efforts. I was hoping that we could manage the trip in Turkey with VoIP phone (FreeTone) and Wi-Fi via hotspot. I ordered the hotspot and all seemed to be moving forward smoothly. Until I started communicating ... Read more >
