So we left the Cappodoccia Sunday night and rolled into ›stanbul monday morning...we got to our hostel and napped for a good 3 hours...we then met up with another aussie-jodie-and began the touring...we hit up the blue mosque - amazing - then spent a solid 4 hours at the bazaar...good lord! haha it was great fun with all the bargaining and apple tea and people yelling out asking if we are charlies angels or the spice girls...classic.
the next morning we were up at 6 and headed out for a day tour to Gallipoli...although it doesnt hold the same meaning for me as it does for the aussies and kiwis it was incredible nonetheless...a very educational day:)
Day two was Kate's last day - we did the Aya Sofia..more bazaar..and had a fantastic lunch at the most turkish of places...we said farewell to Kate as she headed back to australia...Day three was a day of rest
So although I am pumped to get back home to real life, as we drove into Istanbul in the wee hours of monday morning and › watched the sun rise simultaneously over Europe and Asia I thought to myself, life is pretty great.
