Back On The Trail

Durdle Door

Apologies for my absence from this blog over the last year, some of you will know that unfortunately I was ill pretty much most of last year, I still haven’t returned to full health, but I am slowly getting there. I do intend to go back at some point and create a couple of blogs with a few words and photos to fill in the gaps of some of the places I did manage to get to last year, but for now I am focussing on going forward and that starts with my upcoming trip.

Into Istanbul

Hagia Sophia By Night

We were like excited kids at Christmas again this morning, this trip has been a long time in coming. We checked in, went and munched on some bacon & cheese croissants and waited for our flight.

We landed in Istanbul late afternoon, got in a taxi and headed for Sultanahmet (in the old part of the city) to find our guesthouse for the next few days. The driver rang ahead and was given directions in to where we were staying, not far from Sultanahmet Square.
