It is hard for a single guy to enter clubs
I had one week between jobs, and in a minute I jumped on a plane and hit Turkey.
I stayed at Musa's house, he was a wonderful host that I found on AIRBNB, a super cool guy that made me feel at home, and we became close friends.
I didn't make a lot of plans for this trip: every morning I went to the coffee house and drank nice Turkish tea. After that, I looked for some nice places to see in the city and started walking towards them.
Istanbul is so pretty, that I just strolled, looking, eating street food, stopping for coffee, changing my route twice a day, chatting with random people, picturing, writing my thoughts, and taking a good look at one of the most beautiful cities that I ever saw.
Every afternoon, I was coming back to Musa's apartment and chilled with him. At the night I went out dancing, Istanbul has rich nightlife, but the really cool parties are a bit of a secret so open your eyes and get friendly with the Turkish cool kids :)
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would stay in a hostel to meet other travellers.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Nope, it's was really nice and chill.
How was the food?
Every doner shop on the street
What tips would you give a friend?
Be aware with any kind of smoking weed and drinking, the Turkish anti-drugs policy is very strict.
Come with a little backpack instead of a suitcase, for 5 days you really don't need a lot.
There is pretty good and easy metro system in Istanbul
