A trip to the Islands: Büyükada

A nice day trip with the ferry boat from Istanbul to the islands. Büyükada is the biggest of the Prince Islands and the boat ride alone is worth the trip. And than a nice walk over the islands. So many of the wood houses are going south. Still a lot that are in good shape and a lot that are under renovation right now. There are no cars allowed on the island. Kind of nice but I am not sure if the horses have a lot of fun pulling the horse cars up the hills. Some of them do not look god at all!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
