All the trips I've taken over the years. Some far, some near.
Istanbul, land of turbans, spice and carpets
This is the land of cheap layovers on the way to Romania. Thanks to the invisible hand of the market, tickets to the airports that are close to where my fiancee lives were 50% cheaper when flying through Istanbul, with an overnight layover, than more direct flights. It was still
