Last but not the least – Istanbul

So, our last destination was Istanbul. History with beauty, right? Yes, Istanbul is a historic place but not a boring one. I personally am not a fan of ancient and historic spots. But Istanbul was an interesting one. Why? I don’t know. May be because I was on my honeymoon, so I didn’t find anything boring. We visited the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque. Honestly, we were really tired by the time we reached Istanbul. Our energy was drained. Plus Istanbul is a crowded city. Food of Istanbul is bit similar to Kuwait. You will get shawarma, hummus and many other Arab dishes. We didn’t do any activities as such except visiting museums, which was a very good experience. It was time to get back to the REAL LIFE. Enough of being in a dream world. I had to get back to Kuwait, return to the 50C. That’s life. But I will never ever forget those days of my life. ❤

Antalya Calling

I had such an amazing time in Switzerland that my hopes with Turkey were too high. I wasn’t willing to settle for anything lesser than Switzerland. Our first stop was in Antalya for three days. Antalya is a city on the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey. Antalya is one of the most visited cities in the world, in fact the third. So we reached Antalya at midnight and upon calling our hotel, we were informed that there were electricity problems in the hotel and we had to stay in another hotel for the night. Frustrating, right? But when we woke up in the morning and saw the view from the hotel, we wished we could stay for one more day. Take a look!

Our stay was in Bilem High Class Hotel. The hotel had like unlimited facilities. It had swimming pool, spa, private beach. The breakfast was just so delicious. They would serve us with fresh pancakes, cheese omelettes, fruits and juices. The first day just passed in exploring the city. The next day, we planned for river rafting. I don’t have photos of the day because we were not allowed to take our camera. So there are very few photos of Antalya.
