Honeymoon started!! 17/7/12
Trip to instanbul was tiring but we were very lucky cause the plane wasn't very full for the three flights:
- Brisbane to Singapore
- Singapore to Dubai
- Dubai to Instanbul
We were lucky enough to lye down flat in the middle aisle where there were four seats.
In Dubai we had a delish fish (spelt feesh) and chips meal! -- keg wanted McDonald's initially but lucky we found this alternative.
When we arrived in instanbul we couldn't find the Fez transfer guy who was going to take us to our hotel, orka hotel. So we just had to get a cab, the driver was CRAzY!!! No one on the roads use their indicators at all and they just change lanes without really looking!
Arrived at hotel which is really nice, has a gym, indoor pool, rooftop pool and sky bar. We had a sneaky drink and some nuts looking at the sunset over the ocean. Really pretty!
--- we didn't feel like doing too much cause have been in transit for past 20 hours, so we just ducked downstairs and walked down the street to find a nice restaurant. We had a crepe with chicken, and lamb shish.
Walked around and got a feeling of the night life- were looking forward to exploring a little more tomorrow night when we have more energy!
Planning on doing a hop on hop off tour tomorrow. We have three days here before the tour starts :)
This is my first entry on this diary so hopefully all works!!
