Day 46: Istanbul

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Nov - 22 - 2010

0 km

Yesterday I met Mark from New Zealand at my hostel. Mark has been traveling around Turkey by bus for the last 3 weeks so he knew where to buy a cheap bus ticket to Istanbul. He even decided to head the same way. Moving those 350 km sure is a lot easier when you don’t have to cycle!

In Istanbul I checked into another hostel and soon met Matthieu from France. Matthieu had been walking from Paris to Istanbul for the last 6 months! He now also rested his legs. We sure had a few things to talk about.

Great feeling to be back in Istanbul for the 3rd and surely not last time.

    Hi, awesome to read about your travel. Might I ask where you stayed in Istanbul? Looks nice on the picture.

  2. Hi Leon! Very happy to see you here. It was indeed a very nice hostel in Istanbul. Forgive me, but I was there in 2010, and by now I have forgot the name.
