10 Days In Istanbul – Tennis And Sightseeing
This is just a quick record of my recent trip to Istanbul where I was teaching tennis for 10 days and had a chance to meet a fellow SBI-er who showed me around.
I was invited to Istanbul by Vejen, my good friend by now from Turkey whom I taught tennis already 2 years ago in Slovenia.
He found my website through Google (of course), realized that I know something about tennis and decided to visit me for tennis lessons. (I must have presold him with lots of quality content. 😉 )
This year he wanted to come again but since Slovenia was getting quite cold in October I suggested instead that I come down south to Turkey.
While the temperatures here were starting to creep under 10 degrees Celsius, it was still over 20 degrees Celsius on sunny days in Istanbul.
As soon as I arrived, I went to SBI forums and did a search for Istanbul to see if there’s an SBI-er with a website.
That’s how I found Zeynep and her website istanbulextralarge.com where she offers Istanbul travel advice and also offers to take you around and show you the city.
Zeynep was glad to show me around so here are some pictures from that trip.
The freedom of internet business allows me to go to places whenever I want and my income from the websites covers all the costs effortlessly. 😉
So if you ever plan to visit Istanbul and you need a local guide who speaks perfect English, knows a great deal about Istanbul historical places and their architecture, then I really recommend that you get in touch with Zeynep.
You’ll make a great new friend. Thanks again Zeynep for a great day!
