On Turkish Roads

In the past 24 hours, we have been on four flights. Chennai to Bombay, then to Doha, then to Istanbul and finally to Kayseri. It is 7 pm right now and we are on the last leg before we halt for the night. In a shuttle bus from Kayseri to Cappadocia. Around an hour's journey. Listening to some Moby song which goes well with the roads zipping by. The place looks pretty barren. There is a crispy wintery chill in the air. Like Delhi in early December. There is wi-fi in the bus, so conversations have been stalled. The next ten days look promising. Cappadocia, Antalya, Fethiye, Pamukkale, Izmir and ending with Istanbul. With some very close friends. The customary beers started last night. I have as usual become the butt of many jokes. Seems like routine warmth. :) Today we stay in Falcon Cave hostel. And tomorrow, I start clicking. :) More later!

First view of Istanbul


  1. Hey, been following your blog for some time, but commenting for the first time. Was in Turkey for 10 days a couple of years back, but we only did Capadoccia and Istanbul. Did it really well, which is why missed out on the other places in your itinerary. Hope you enjoy your trip!

    1. Hey Shimonti, Thanks! Yeah the trip went really well! Tukey is a beautiful country. Loved every bit of it. The people and their warmth. Amazing beaches. Awesome food! You should go back sometime. :)

      P.S - Going through you blog. Good one! The touch of sarcasm in the posts is well appreciated. :) And I picked your name from your blog. Hope I picked the right one!

  2. Hey thanks for dropping by. the name is Simanti but pronounced Shimonti: a typical Bong legacy as you might know :)
