ETTE130330:Turkey Explorer - March 30, 2013

Postby adhikar » Sat Mar 02, 2013 2:10 am

Hi,

I arrive at the hotel the evening before the tour starts, on March 29, 2013.

If any other tour participants are getting there around the same time, I'm free for dinner on the evening of March 29, and breakfast on the morning of March 30.

If anyone knows how to get a local SIM card for an unlocked cellphone, I'd appreciate any advice you have.

If anyone would like to join me on the day of March 30, for a visit to Grand Bazaar, I'd enjoy the company.

Hi Adhikar,

My partner and I are also going on this tour. I have already written a separate post and someone else has replied on it,so make sure you check that one out.
I hope you are looking forward to the tour, we are! We are you travelling to (besides Turkey) on this trip? My partner and I are travelling from Sydney Australia, What about you?

@ Amy : Hi. Turkey is the only place I'm travelling to on this trip. I hail from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and will be travelling alone.

@nirt : Hi. I've never been to Turkey before. I have no tips at this time. I'm planning pick up a copy of Lonely Planet or Rough Guide from the library next week, and do some advanced preparation.

I'll post any useful information I come across. I go down to the travel clinic on March 23.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Hi....

This is an open invitation to everyone. I'm planning to go to the Grand Bazaar on Saturday, March 30. Anyone who would like to join me for breakfast, and then a walk around the bazaar, can leave a message for me at the front desk.
