Rise and shine, Istanbul.
As we depart from various airports and we all agree that we will just meet in Ataturk Airport before going to the city. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia peeps arrived there at around 1030 am, while my flight from Abu Dhabi arrived at 1230 and Gwen’s plane arrived at 1400. I don’t know much happening in the airport but as I arrived, I am delighted what Istanbul stored for us.
I’ve met my newest crazy-cozy and friendly travel mates. Ricci, Mae and Jeff! In a glance I knew that we will click all the way – All Smiles!
Meet Ricci, Mae and Jeff!
Merhaba Turkey! Airport transfer pick up! got my name into it!
We managed to arrange airport transfers to our hostel for about 50 Euros for all of us. Before we are thinking of doing a public transportation, But with all the heavy baggages that girls brought – I guess it is a good choice. — nope, Best Choice!
Cheers Hostel welcomed us with one of the famous hugs and kisses of the Turkish friendliness – the Apple Tea and Turkish Delight! Who else to start it but with Tarek! Yahoo!
I guess one of the best advantages of Cheers is it’s location. We are just walking distance to the famous Hagia Sofia and the Sultanahmet Square – which is the core of the tourist spot in Istanbul. So as we arrived, we decided to take a stroll and have our early dinner too!
Strolling. Snapshot happy peeps.
Surveying the scene!
