Wrong vapur to Beşiktaş

My first Saturday in Istanbul felt well deserved after a tiring first week of proofreading at the office. I planned to attend the Turkish conversation club organised at 11AM by Yasom on Istiklal avenue in Beyoğlu, but I left home late and ended up taking the wrong vapur to Beşiktaş instead of Kabataş.

As the vapur drifted starboard, I realised my half-hearted effort to attend Yasom (and spend yet more time indoors) was turning into a delicious opportunity to venture somewhere new. Can you blame me? Look at that weather!

I still made it to the conversation club and attended the English session instead.









About seboseba

I grew up in Essex, I happen to be French and I love Turkey (the country), especially Istanbul, among other places, for having lived there. I studied European policies and communication, graduating with a MA in both (yep, studying is still almost free in France). I wrote a research dissertation on employee recognition, the origins of virtue and corporate social responsibility. I love photography (hence the blogging), European training courses, forum theatre, jazz, blues, rock music, hiking in the mountains, skiing. If I could choose, I'd be a student all my life, but that doesn't pay much! You might have guessed by now, I'm looking for a job, but communication looks like a dead end these days so maybe I'll watch Midnight Cowboy again and get inspired...:-)
