Day 20 – Amsterdam, Holland to Istanbul, Turkey

April 2015

After five days in Amsterdam, we leave for Istanbul today. Our Turkish Airline flight departure is at 12:00 p.m.

As if god wanted to test us again, the flight was delay to 1:30 p.m. then rescheduled to 2:00 p.m. and finally took off at 2:30 p.m. A delay of 2½ hours.

Upon arrival in Istanbul, the airport shuttle provider Efendi Travel Agency was waiting for us and transfer from Ataturk to Sultanahmet was smooth arriving at our hotel around 7:00 p.m. This late arrival didn’t worry us as this is our 3rd time visiting Istanbul and staying at Star Holiday Hotel, the same hotel we stayed previously.


Goodbye Amsterdam.
