"Pack light, travel happy" is the favourite phrase of our Turkey trip leader. She has reiterated this maxim on several occasions in the lead-up to our departure. Jill has decided to test the integrity of the premise by an experiment - she has packed all her stuff into my bag! We'll post an update on who is the most joyful traveller in the next few days!
We set off this morning for London. Our flight is early tomorrow morning. We will travel to Istanbul and then on to Ankara. We will do our utmost to keep the blog up and running - but we will not have our own computer, so posts will be a lot less frequent over the next two weeks.
We will ensure to take a significant amount of photos which we will endeavour to upload upon our return. We are due back in the UK in the early hours of 19 November. Until then (or until the next post), sending you all our love!
P.S. Apologies that you are required to crane your neck to view the photos above, but it's half an hour until we leave and my (Jill) technical skills can't sort it quickly!
