Before our trip to Çanakkale, Evren told us to take Friday off. We used it to go to the islands. They get overcrowded on the weekend, so Friday was the day.
The vapür for Kınalıada departs from Kadiköy. The best neighbourhood to have a drink on the Asian side is also a multi-modal transport hub, where boats, buses and trains come and go.
I arrived early at Kadiköy, unlike some! So I roamed around, catching that buzzing feeling of people going places, until it was our time to go.
