I am not what most would consider a pleasure to travel with, particularly when it comes to international travel. If you are traveling with me you must be prepared for the following:
- Everything in Between
I will expect you to pack lightly, yet have a suitable attire for a cocktail party and a local dive bar. I will also expect that you sleep no more than four hours at night, move quickly, navigate maps, speak to locals about their favorite spots and take risks. Risks such as... nerding it out with comic book store employees, getting into cars (or boats) with people you met only a few hours (or moments) ago, changing your travel itinerary in an instant, eating what is put in front of you, and simply going with the flow - whatever that may be.
When you travel with Leyla...it is ALL about where the day takes you. Oh, not to worry too much, I always bring handy wipes.
Here is a snapshot of the past ten days I spent in Istanbul.
