It is our last day in Istanbul and we left the charming Armada Hotel -but please check out their wonderful breakfast; fresh seasonal fruit, dried fruit,all kinds of cheeses and olives,
Different home made jams, natural honey, yoghurt, grains, pastries, simit, different ways with eggs and many more. Over looking to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, this has been the breakfast I look forward to every morning:)
And we started our journey towards the Dardanelles (the strait that connects Europe to Asia at the other end of Sea of Marmara) to see the battlefields of Gallipoli. We passed endless fields of sunflowers, such an uplifting, happy site to see.
On the way, sampled some wonderful fresh calamari shallow fried in a light batter and cheese and parsley filled “Sigara Boregi” for lunch.
And here we are crossing the Dardanelles – you can see the battlefields of Gallipoli
at the landing.
And before my internet connection goes away, here comes the replica of the wooden house at Troy. Look forward to sharing more later!:)
