Mad Hatters of Istanbul

5 August 2016

A crazy week was had by all when Michelle joined us in Istanbul. So many laughs in such a short time!

Wanting a slightly different edge to our pics we set off in search of something distinctive … We found hats!

We hit all the top sights … The amazing Blue Mosque, the madness of the Grand Bazaar, historic Hagia Sophia church / museum, the fascinating  underground Bascilica Cisterns, the opulent Dolmabahce Palace, intriguing Galata Tower & busy busy  Istiklal Avenue . Funny thing is … None of our pics captured these sights!

No form of transport was safe … Whether it was subway tunnels, trams, ferries, buses or escalators … We managed to entertain the crowds with our crazy antics!

New friends were made along the way … Hair bear, hat man & the waterfront waiters.

We managed to eat & drink our way around Istanbul … Traditional Turkish breakfast platters on the Bosphorus, tacos in a roof top bar in Karakoy, curb side shish kebabs in Arnavutköy, fish & chips on the ferry! There was plenty of cocktails, beer & wine in between!

Thanks Michelle for making the long haul … We had a wonderful time … Despite missing our flight to China!
