When we entered Tajikistan, we knew that we will spend a lot of time in the nature. We were very happy about that. Our first trip brought us to the wonderful Seven Lakes in the Fan Mountains in the northwest of the country. We hang around there for a couple of lazy days. After this time, we were ready for some physical activity.
Baku was one of the reasons, we decided to take the risk and leave Willie behind in Georgia. We had been looking forward to visit this city for a while and did not want to miss it.
Istanbul, although it is not Turkey’s capital, is one of the busiest and most multifaceted cities we have been so far. We liked the historic districts, the big and smaller mosques, the lively bazaars and the young and modern corners. We enjoyed the time with our couchsurfing host Aziz, his great breakfast and the cai at his friend’s cafe.
Thanks to Aziz’ timing plan, we could explore almost every must-see site of Istanbul during our four day stay there.
We never felt unsafe although we noticed the lack of foreign tourists and the presence of police everywhere.
Delphi is one of the must sees in Greece. We planned to cross the country through the northern part. But then we got recommendations from different sites to not miss Delphi.
So, we changed planes (as usual) and went south. It was a perfect decision, though. We really enjoyed our stay in the area and the visit to the archaeological site of Delphi.
As a plus, we hiked down from the city to the sea and finished the day with a jump into the cold water.
Visiting the capital is probably on every itinerary while traveling in Greece. It is a big and busy city. It has its own atmosphere and many great places to see.
