Kane Family's Thai/European Escapade 2009 travel blog


Here we are at our devine hotel in Istanbul. the Acra Hotel, brand new and beautiful. We slept in to recover from our bugs, then to the roof top terrace for breakfast. We lounged in our room for a bit and got washing sorted... we had all run out of clean clothes. We then walked in the extreme 31 degrees heat, sun and then rain to the Grand Bazaar, am sure some of you have been here before, a plethora of shops, leather, gold etc.... we bought the kids a backgammon set, a few mementos and bits and pieces, then walked back to our hotel via the Blue Mosque. We all had to rest again, Ross went out for a cut throat shave and the girls and I had a rest and a read. we went out for dinner here in the area of Sultanamet, where all the backpackers stay.... still not all feeling that great so only a small snack of dinner. And back home by 11.
