On our last day in Istanbul, we took a taxi out to Rumeli Hisari. It is right next to the Bosphorus and because we were greeted with amazing sunshine and perfect 18-degree weather, we had a really good time there.
We made our way there to eat at Kale Cafe (photo on the left). Made popular and known to me from an episode of No Reservations! We ordered the usual Turkish breakfast spread and it didn’t disappoint!
After breakfast, we took a slow walk toward the Ottoman Fortress of Rumeli Hisari.
The view was beautiful although some points were scary to hike up to. Looking at these photos now, I’m getting excited about our trip to Beijing in April. I booked us a hike to the Great Wall, like an 8km hike. Ha! I’m just thinking about getting nice pictures and not thinking so much about the distance…
