Visiting Istanbul

I can now finally say it … I’m going to Istanbul this weekend!! Woo hoo!

I have no travel plans … not this month… not this year. But I guess the travel gods have different things in mind.

I received an invite last week  from Turkish Airlines [Europe’s Best Airline] to visit Istanbul with fellow bloggers in the GCC. To say I wasn’t prepared was an understatement. I did not have a visa, I needed to file for vacation days (and explain to my boss that I needed a loooong weekend because…you know, I haven’t been on vacation for two years!), I requested for my passport and other documentation (I will do a separate post on visa application for Filipinos How to apply Turkish Visa for Filipinos).

Anyway, I’m glad that everything is done, and I have my passport, visa and tickets ready. I just need to pack my bags and go. We’re flying early morning tomorrow.  So, if you want to see how the trip goes, I will be posting photos on Instagram and Facebook. Also, I will be live tweeting if possible. (That means follow me. LOLS!)
