Besides spending a couple of days around NYE in Istanbul, I had planned to visit Chisinau, Moldova for a couple of days and it would be the last missing country in Europe to visit. I had been very close to go there many times but this time it was to be. Thirdly I had also planned to visit Beirut, Lebanon just after NYE, a country that I also had looked forward to visiting for years. It was going to be 10 great days.
