Been in Istanbul for a couple of days now, its a crazy place to be ! we are staying in a district 5 miles from the centre. Its a really lively place and seems to operate 24/7 !
We have done the touristy things and really enjoyed it.
Heading off tomorrow towards central Turkey, looking forward to the rural life after a couple of hectic days in the city.
Also started to learn a few words of Russian, as we are only 8 days away from entering Russia!
