Come along for the journey!

Come along for the journey!

Friday, 16 October 2009


We had a great time taking the sleeper train from Thessaloniki to Istanbul...there were hardly any passengers and we had our own private cabin to stare out the window across the foggy barren land, spotting tiny villages twinkling in the distance. The dodgy bit was getting woken up at 3am by a stern knock on the door for border checks and then realising we only had 28 euros and needed to buy our 2 visas on the spot. Eek - luckily we just had enough! Then we fell back asleep - waking up to the prayer calls sounding in our ears from the passing mosques, peeking out the window with excitement for the Turkish sunshine.
