My job allows me to visit a lot of Alaska on a yearly basis. I wanted to capture the trips in one location!

Tour of the Bosphorus Sea

on February 10, 2013

12/27/12

Enjoyed the day exploring the streets around the spice market.  We headed towards the train with the idea of taking it to the end of the line, but as we walked around the area we noticed that there were 1.5-hour boat tours of the Bosphorus Sea for 10 TL (about  $6).  It was a beautiful sunny day, so we jumped on the opportunity.  The first ½ of the trip followed along our side of the river, we viewed the Dolmabahce Palace https://timistravels.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1047&action=edit and eventually all the way down to the Rumelihisari Fort https://timistravels.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1850&action=edit&message=6&postpost=v2 before turning around.  It was sunny and very nice.IMG_8803

Once we turned around and headed back following along the Asian side of the water it got much more chilly.IMG_8837IMG_8759IMG_8760IMG_8778 IMG_8779IMG_8788 IMG_8805IMG_8813 IMG_8814 IMG_8815IMG_8823 IMG_8838 IMG_8840 IMG_8842 IMG_8844IMG_8859 IMG_8862 IMG_8863 IMG_8864

It was a great ride but the best part was watching the sunset as we were pulling back into the harbor.

For dinner we had some lamb kabobs and 3 of them cost a grand total of 22 L well under $10.   IMG_8765IMG_8882IMG_8884 IMG_8773
