Hello Home, Goodbye Year 31 December 2011

31 12 2011

After a few mishaps we’re back home.  We were meant to make our way back home via Istanbul and then Kuala Lumpur but some not so healthy Turkish food threw a spanner in that works.  Firstly, Katie went down ill on our last day in Turkey then on the flight from Turkey to Kuala Lumpur (via Dubai) Ned went down as well, such that once we got to Dubai he was too unfit to fly.  The poor blighter was  hooked up to an IV in the medical rooms at Dubai airport.  He was in there for a couple of hours all up so by the time he was right to fly again we had to make the call between continuing on to KL or to catch the next direct flight home.  It was too tempting to just get home rather than risking any more fall outs from the Istanbul cuisine.

I’m sure Istanbul could be a cool place but where we stayed near Taksim Square with all the dodgy nuts preying on tourists and with the food poisoning experience, we won’t be in any hurry to go back.
