Place 19 – Day 1: Istanbul 🇹🇷 – Transfer


We had to leave the hostel by 12:00 today, so we left our bags there and made our way to town to get some lunch. 

We went to Pizza Hut and got the lunch buffet and made sure we ate plenty!

Once we finished eating, we headed back to the hostel to collect our bags and then had to catch the train to the airport. 

We got to the airport and attempted to check in our bags, which was entertaining and took longer than expected, due to visa misunderstandings, but all was sorted and we checked our bags!

We are flying to Istanbul and, although we technically aren’t there yet, that is where this blog is based as we will be there at around 22:30 as we leave here at 19:15. 

We then have another flight, a long one, to our next ‘proper’ location which leaves around 01:00, but all will be revealed as to where we are when we get there!

We are preparing for a long travel time and hopefully we will then be somewhere new which will be completely different to what we are used to, but we are very excited!

Güle Güle!
