Intrepid Day 2 (10-April) - Flight to Trabzon
S6shot-The crazy bunch before boarding We started a little bit early on a Tuesday since we had to get to the airport for our flight to Trabzon. I didn't have enough sleep the night before, but thought it best to get some shut eye on the plane.  The morning ...

Intrepid Day 1 - Istanbul - The Meetup
The traffic was a nightmare. I checked my watch almost every minute, hoping a miracle would happen. I hate getting late most especially when it's a first meetup. The cab driver rang the hotel a couple of times, trying to figure out where abouts it was since...

When Music wasn't part of the plan
I wasnt really sure where the train line was when I got out of the
church. I zipped up my jacket since it was getting a bit chilly. I traced my steps back

A Special Sunday in Beyoģlu, Istanbul
One of my main goals going to that side of the city was to attend Sunday service in a Catholic Church. Research showed that all the churches were on the Asian side. And I made a promise that despite the distance, I would still make sure I made it. It was st...

Exploring the Asia side
Crossing the streets reminded me of back home, i.e. Manila. It was still tame S6shot- Fruit stalls compared to Vietnam and Egypt. Pedestrian crossings were non existent despite the clear streak of white lines on the road. I later on realized that I was foll...

Sultanahmet - Part II
Basilica Cistern I quickly found my way through Sultanahmet square. The clouds still lingered around. The Basilica Cistern was just across Hagia Sofia. The line wasnt that long to my delight. The entry fee was 20 Liras and as far as I remember wasnt include...

Out and About in Sultanahmet (Old City) - Part 1
I woke up way before the alarm clock. The 6 am wakeup call wasnt required at all. By 5:30 am the first call for prayer blasted from the speakers of the closeby mosque. I went up to the 5th floor and found a girl gazing out the window at the quaint kitchen o...

My First Night in Istanbul
I went out around sunset time. I could hear prayers from the mosque Famished and weak, I was craving for proper food. Airplane meals never really gave me comfort. I walked along Small Ayasofya street and savoured the chill air. The traffic was still S6shot-...
