TOTL Getaway: Istanbul





The end of summer can always be a little bit daunting, especially for the TOTL team who are a bunch of ladies
who love their summer sun and so a mini get away was arranged. A trip to a fascinating city where Aladdin and Jasmine once flew on their magic carpet to pick up perhaps a brightly coloured lamp, feast on some delicious Turkish mezze dishes or maybe just sit back and relax while smoking their shisha.

What we did
Tried our best at haggling in The Grand Bazaar
Saw how blue the Blue Mosque really is
Sailed on the Bosphorus and hopped along the Asia and Europe continents (look up!)

What we ate
Far too many heavenly pieces of Baklava
Turkish pizza (not so quite the Domino version)
Spinach and feta cheese pastries

What we drank
Endless glasses of Turkish tea

Crazy Bear

The new favourite TOTL haunt is the Crazy Bear Hotel. Go for an Infinity Suite (in this case the Jet Black) and take all the lascivious lingerie you own ….. after a relaxing thai massage, a bottle of champagne in the infinity jacuzzi bath – which fills up from the ceiling, obvs, and has a penchant for changing colour – followed by three or four, possibly five of the outstanding cocktails, you’re sure to need it!

Shmoke und a pancake?

Three words to sum up the TOTL team. Foodaholics,shopaholics and cocktaila…lovers! (It is safe to say not sure if we have reached the -lism part of that word just yet) But yes I admit. We do love dining and wining. On this day however our usual bottle of Pinot was replaced with fruity smoothies and herbal teas when we payed a visit to The Breakfast Club.

What we ate
Pancakes and Berries
Reggie the Veggie full english breakfast
Eggs Royale

What we drank
The Big Breakfast (Strawberry, banana, oats, honey, yoghurt and milk)
Pommy Granny (Pomegranate, Blueberries, Raspberries, Apple and Ginger)
