Just a taste

I am home from a trip to Istanbul and the Ukraine. We had booked the trip over a year ago and were taken with the idea of a River boat cruise. We booked with our regular travelling friends.

We were disappointed with missing a day in Istanbul as our plane was delayed over 30 hours. What we saw there is a bit of a blur, as we arrived at 5am and we did managed 3 hours sleep before the tour. We bought a carpet, still to arrive, for the living room. We saw the Blue Mosque and the Haghia  Sofia and a 10 minute look into the bazaar, too tired to do more. We had a dinner, after a nap, at the roof top resturant at hotel over looking the Bosphorus.

Some photos of our short stay.

    That sounds like a dream trip. Bit of a nightmare beginning but it sounds as though all went well after that. Hope your rug arrives home safe and sound, too.
