From: April 2nd 2011
Until: April 10th 2011

We roam around historical buildings with great frescos, linger in tulip parks while seeing Bosphorus strait, ate in both top notch restaurants and small lokanta, walked around 2000 year old city ruins, hopped on hot air balloon, and saw giant rocks that looks like ... (look at my
images and you'll know what i mean) ha ha… What a wonderful vacation it is!
