BLOGGING FROM ABU DHABI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Sometimes there will be places that I would never have dreamed of going but here I am, in Istanbul, Turkey for my short Chinese New Year break. Departing from KLIA on Saturday night at 8:30 p.m., was on transit in Abu Dhabi and the flight was delayed for more than 2 hours, I finally reached the Ataturk International Airport at 8.30 a.m. on Sunday morning. My partner in crime, Mr. Mohd. Razib, who is currently working in Qatar, had reached Istanbul a day earlier and was waiting for me at the arrival hall, and that had saved me the trouble from trying to get my way to the hotel on my own.

We tried the Metro service which is connected to the airport. Not only it was convenient, but it was cheap as well. And once after I have dropped my luggage at the hotel room, we started our exploration around beautiful Istanbul.

Time is actually very limited to go and see around what Istanbul has to offer but I am already falling in love with it. Do expect more pictures and stories from Istanbul. See you later, alligator.
