It is great to be on holiday in one of the worlds great cities, Istanbul. I have come to know the city rather well and so can get around very easily. I still feel a great lift when I get here and, I already have a plan of the places I want to see and know the things I enjoy most, like the markets etc. It is a fast pace city but there is time to enjoy the place you are at. You move from Europe to Asia with a very good boat system, this is a ride I really enjoy.
