I took the bus the next morning back to Heathrow to head off to Istanbul to see Ben. The flight was fairy uneventful but when I got out of the airport Ben was there to pick me up, which was lovely, and he showed me the way back to the hostel via train and tram. As I only landed in the evening I didn’t see much of the city but we did go have dinner down the road from our hostel. The hostel’s first impression wasn’t great but by the next morning, breakfast and tea had changed my mind and I quite liked the place.
