...Istanbul!Flights and hotel are sorted (we are flying into Ataturk(?) airport and hotel is picking us up). Any tips or recommendations? What do we HAVE to do?Responses saying "are you crazy, Istanbul is <insert problem here>" are fine but obviously I hope I won't get too many of those TIA
Oooo - Istanbul one of my favourite cities...Sancta SophiaBlue MosqueThe Grand BazaarAnd the sultan's palace - which I can't remember the name ofFor mosques etc be prepared to cover up and take a shawl to throw over and make you modest!
Thanks for the response. Glad you approve of our choice .Will get googling your recommendations.Noted re the shawl. Are arms/legs on show OK for the rest of the city?
Your going for 4 child free days in a hotel it really doesn't matter where you are going
I never get it when people say that yes sex good but coem ON>.. Istanbul!
Ha ha CarGirl. <whispers> we may also be TTC whilst we are there....TBH however I think the lure of kebabs and Effes beer will be an even greater temptation to DH
Hmmm I wasn't just thinking about sex! No food shopping/cooking, leisurely mornings, no dc bedtimes, walking around places at the speed you want etc etc etc
I know my limits
No cleaning for 4 days - sounds like bliss
