Summer in Europe is a dream for so many. Not only to enjoy the beaches and see the monuments and history in sunny and warm days, but also to celebrate some of the craziest festivals in the world. San Fermin – better known as the Running of the Bulls – is one of those crazy festivals. A Spanish man’s right of passage, it involves running through a 825m track, navigating through narrow and winding cobblestone streets… oh, and did I mention whilst being chased by six 500kg+ bulls?!?
Still recovering from the shock, grief and realisation that Game of Thrones has wrapped up for another season, I thought it was time to reminisce about one of my favourite Game of Thrones moments this year, being the Game of Thrones Exhibition in Madrid.
During our short trip to Istanbul (which you can read Part 1 and Part 2 here), we stayed at the Walnut Shell Hotel. I cannot rave highly enough about this place and the lovely staff who worked there. Read below for our hotel review on the Walnut Shell Hotel in Istanbul.
Picking up where we left off in Part 1 of our trip to Istanbul, we spend the next two days exploring some more wonders of Istanbul.
Istanbul is a vibrant city and mix of cultures begging to be tasted and explored. We spent a brilliant 72 hours in this remarkable city and have written our suggestions on how to get the most out of your short visit.
