When you reach the island you have to find yourself a way of transportation if you want to explore the island. Easiest one is to rent a horse carriage, but if you feel fit to do it you could also rent a bicycle. Motorized vehicles are forbidden. Well, as we are a bit lazy, we chosed to rent a carriage.For almost 2 hours we either enjoyed the beautiful scenery or the lovely houses
For the last two days the weather in Istanbul is fantastic.Just like summer. But I think these are the very last of the good weather days as TV news started to show the snowy scenes from the eastern parts of the country. So we decided to take a very small vacation as we could not leave the puppy alone for a very long time. So all we needed was a 45 minutes of sailing to feel a bit of holiday time on an ordinary day..Destination is Buyuk Ada - Big Island. Largest of the 9 so called Princess islands in the Marmara Sea. So take a boat..
For a late lunch before returning to the city, A glass of wine with a simple fish dish is the best alternative to end the trip. So in almost 5 hours we had a lovely vacation..
