Seagull Frenzy on the Kadikoy Ferry - Istanbul, Turkey (VIDEO)

On our recent Trip to Turkey in October 2015, we had seen a lot of tour groups trying to get travellers to book an expensive cruise on the Bosphorus sea, however we didn’t really want to spend all that time and money on a ship. After some research, we found we could experience the sea via a brief 10 minute Ferry ride from the European side of Istanbul to the Asian side for mere change, so we were all for it!

Flight Review: Turkish Airlines Business Class B777-300ER Toronto to Istanbul

After two years of planning and Aeroplan-points-collecting, our journey finally started here at Pearson Airport in Toronto in late October, 2015. We were happy that our redeemed Aeroplan reward-flight began with Turkish Airlines, as we've always had excellent flights with them.

We checked our luggage into the business class counter and were presented with access to the lounge before our flight.

The 11 Cats of Istanbul, Turkey

I have a love/hate relationships with cats. I love cats, but my immune system hates them.

Thus is the tragic tale of a childhood secretly sneaking out to play with neighbourhood cats and getting in trouble with mom when I got really sick. Luckily, I have learned nothing from my childhood and still pursue my feline happiness, so imagine my reaction walking down the streets of Istanbul, SURROUNDED by cats.
