My Short Trip to Istanbul Turkey – Renaissance Polat Istanbul Hotel (Day 1)

It was a last minute decision for the business trip, I could not get a direct flight from Singapore to Istanbul which is available on Singapore Airlines, I had to transit via Doha before reaching Istanbul. We arrived almost 5am in the morning and there wasn’t much crowd and the weather was freaking cold ! Change Currency and Purchase Sim Card ! Turkey does not really relies on Euro currency for daily usage and 23 did not managed to find any currency exchange for Turkish Lira while we were in Singapore or Qatar airport. The first thing was to find a currency exchange counter to change my US dollars into Turkish Lira. Internet connection would be the second on my mind. While strolling inside of the …

Will There Be Chances to Go Marienplatz in Munich Again ?

A quiet street in the night near Munich city centre. I was digging through my photo archive while I found some photos (though poorly using my iPhone 4) while I was at Munich for a tradeshow in 2013. It was early in the evening and we took a cab down the city centre to search for food – something oriental. We ended up in a Japanese restaurant owned by an authentic Japanese that cooks really decent Japanese food, but of course comes at an expensive price tag. Since it was still early after the dinner, we took a stroll along the main street. Magnificent view of Marienplatz. The weather was cold but the streets were still filled with people, many sitting outside the bars and pubs, …
