My semester in photos: research your hostel! - Travis from Waynesburg (Part 7)

Free breakfast at the Harmony Hostel in Istanbul, Turkey

Keywords: Istanbul, Hagia Sophia

Lesson: Research your hostel.

Aside from the trips the program takes us on we also have the ability to travel on our own. Elizabeth Johnson, a fellow study abroad student, and myself decided that we would venture to Istanbul for a three day trip to see as much as we could of this melting pot of east and west. While security and cleanliness are important, I choose this photo to underline the two most crucial aspects when choosing a hostel: location and free breakfast. From the terrace of the hostel we started each morning with some free grub and a view of the beautiful Hagia Sophia.

  1. I'm hoping to go to Istanbul while I'm in Lithuania this coming fall! Any advice you can offer for getting there, traveling the city etc.?
