Many, many hours later, I have arrived.
I pretty much walked in the door, unpacked a little, showered, sat down and didn't get up until this moment. Exhaustion is amazing in how it can just sweep over you. My laptop isn't set just yet, so this post will be brief and imageless. I can tell you that I was probably the happiest girl that ever went through Passport Control at the Istanbul airport, beaming from ear to ear and squeezing out the few Turkish words I knew to a good-humoured airport security team. Tomorrow I hope to fill you in on some more details, including a review of Turkish Airlines, which was fabulous and included a live camera of the pilots' view for passengers to watch on their individual monitors!
