Without any plans, we are here just to chill! No running around to see as much as possible, no sightseeing or maps and guides. Just chilling! I have some fur jacket in my plans but will see how it goes. When we reached the hotel, we realized its Friday and around 6pm everything will start closing.

Dosli smo u Istanbul da kuliramo! Bez planova, jurnjave, cisto da provedemo dva dana. Ok imala sam u planu mozda da kupim neko krzno!
Kada smo dosli u hotel, skontali smo da je petak i sve se ranije zatvara.

For me Istanbul are the mosque, Grand bazaar, baklava and tea. All of it is on the tram street, so I don't need to go anywhere further. And I've been here many times so it's not like wasting the day and not seeing anything of the great history what has been left here.

Za mene Istanbul predstavljaju dzamija, Grand bazar, baklave i caj! A to je sve u jednoj ulici tako da ja dalje ne moram! Par puta sam vec bila ovde i zato ova dva dana nismo jurili da obijdemo znamenitosti grada.

 all you need is Turkish tea and hookah! Grape mint for me, please!

The hotel we stayed in is Sultanahmed Hotel which is only 5 minutes away from the Blue Mosque so the most of the time we walked. As we walked around I had a boiled corn, roasted chestnuts and kebab so when the dinner time came all I wanted was a dessert. Finally time for Turkish delight and baklava. 

Hotel u kom smo bili smesteni je Sultanahmet hotel koji se nalazi u blizini Plave dzamije i bazara tako da smo mogli svuda da setamo. Na ulici sam jela i kuvani kukuruz i peceno kestenje i kebab pa kad je bilo vreme za veceru, meni je falio samo dezert. Konacno vreme je za baklave i ratluk.

We woke up early and going to Grand Bazaar to search for the perfect fur jacket. I know Grand Bazaar is touristic place and not the best for buying this things but to be honest I didn't do any research where is the best place in Istanbul to buy fur. So let's check out what they have here!

Rano smo ustali i sad u potragu za krznom. Grand Bazar je veoma popularan za turiste i znam da nije najbolje mesto da tu kupujem krzno ali nisam se mnogo raspitivala gde drugo da trazim. Idem da vidim sta ima!

Grand Bazaar and streets around are full of shops with fake clothes, shoes, bags, etc. Also there is a lot of gold and fur shops. I got little disappointment because couldn't find the right jacket for me. I thought Istanbul is the best place to buy fur, so either I was in the wrong place or I was thinking wrong from the beginning. Almost all the shops are having the same jackets so there is no even point going from one to another. I tried really so many and I was waiting for the ONE when I put it on and look myself in the mirror to think: "WOW, this is the one! Looks so good that I can't leave without buying it". They are all nice and soft, foxes, rabbits and chinchillas but non of them got me that WOW impression. 

Bazar i ulice oko bazara prepune prodavnica kopija markirane garderobe! Ima svega, zlata, cipela, torbi,a ima i krzna.  Mislila sam da nema boljeg mesta za krzno od Istanbula i bas sam se razocarala. Ili ja nisam bila na pravom mestu ili sam od starta pogresno mislila. Svaka prodavnica krzna i jakni ima apsolutno iste stvari. Znaci skoro pa nema ni poente ici od jedne do druge radnje kad svi imaju isto. Probala sam brdo jakni, bundi, prsluka i sve je to lepo, mekano, cincile i lisice ali ni jedna mi nije odgovarala. Zelela sam kad obucem to krzno i pogledam se u ogledalo da to bude "WOW ovo je pravo, izgleda tako dobro da ne mogu da odem a da ga ne kupim". E ni za jednu od bundi nisam imala taj osecaj.

It's OK. If they don't have than they don't have! Let's go have a tea!

Sta sad kad nema, nema! Aj na caj!

9:00 am Sunday

It's early and there is not so many people on the streets. I just don't feel like going home. We walked little but more on the tram street and to the mosque before we checked out. We took a tram to get to the airport what was very simple and took us around 45 minutes.

9:00 Nedelja

Rano je i skoro nema ljudi na ulici i nikako mi se ne ide kuci. Jos malo smo se prosetali ulicom kojom ide tramvaj, otisli do dzamije i vreme je za check out. Veoma je lako tramvajem stici do aerodroma, trebalo nam je nekih 45 min a zbog guzve toliko treba i kolima.
