Thought you were offering the tickets out for a moment! lolMrs E has secured some complimentary flights out to Istanbul over the Easter weekend, so I was wondering if anyone here has been out there and can recommend any hotels, restaurants, etc.
I didn't ask tho...In all my travels I have to admit when people ask me the worst country I have visited it is Turkey by a mile, if the world had piles this is where they would be. three words sum it up for me
Sell the tickets and go somewhere nice Istanbul may have history, but it's an historical dump.
No you didnt ask, sorry i have a passionate dislike of the place.I didn't ask tho...
I've traveled to the dumpiest dumps in the world, so Istanbul will be a breeze by comparison to some African or ex-soviet states.
One of my great regrets is that I am unlikely to be ever able to visit places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Cradle of civilisation and all that but now no-go areas Truly sadNo you didnt ask, sorry i have a passionate hate of the place.
Give me kazakhstan, georgia, nigeria, mali, or russian far east any day
I've done Iran and Iraq, Iranians are so friendly the mines i worked on we were invited to the locals houses for meals it was such an honour for them and a pleasure for us. The media BS just portrays the country in such a negative way it is a true shame.One of my great regrets is that I am unlikely to be ever able to visit places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Cradle of civilisation and all that but now no-go areas Truly sad
A genuine and heartfelt observation BTW - no anti slogans and smartarse comments. Thanks
