Adventure Update from Treacle

Treacle in Istanbul

Hello everybody!


I've made the long trip to Turkey and I'm in Istanbul, which was called Constantinople. It was a long journey with Turkish Airlines and we stopped to rest at the Armada Hotel. You could see the Blue Mosque from the roof of the hotel, fantastic! It was a bit wet though, so I had to sit on a plastic bag! I also visited the Topkapi Palace with its amazing gardens. I had to sit there for a bit, it was a very long day full of walking. More soon!
