Our 'real' first day started at 7 o'clock in the morning because we were expected to have breakfast at 8 o'clock and to leave at 8.30. This day was a cultural one. We started to walk to Topkapi Palace, Palace of the former Sultan. First we walke around in the palace and later we went into the building where the Harem of the Sultan lived before. The weather was really nice today. Warm and sunshine, I like! It was nice to see the palace from the inside, especially the Harem part, but the view over the Bosporus was really beautiful!
After visiting the palace we want to the harbour to make a boat trip. We were on a huge boat and have been sailing for 2 hours. We were sitting on the deck in the sunshine and enjoyed ourselves very well. The activities that day ended with a game in Gülhane park.
