Bulgaria + 24 hours in Istanbul

A few weeks ago Mr Kitten and I went on holiday to Sunny Beach in Bulgaria.

Only to take a bus-trip to Istanbul where we spent about 24 hours seeing some of the sights...



...and on the highest hill in Istanbul, on the Asian side of the city, Mr Kitten proposed!


I didn't come as surprise though, as we had talked about getting engaged on our trip, but anyway, it was nice and the view was pretty spectacular.

The next day we bought some white gold engagement rings from one of the many places selling gold in the city, before heading back to Bulgaria.


Sunny beach is a really touristy kind of place, with not much to do but take it easy, hang out at the beach/pool, eat, shop and party. But that's why many people go on holiday now isn't it?



It was good to get away, and I especially liked visiting Istanbul, as it really felt like you were somewhere else with all the mosques and minarets everywhere. Somewhere closer to Asia.

Grattis! Gud vad roligt!
Resan verkar inte helt fel, den heller. Fotot på dig i polen får mig att längta efter solsemester där man bara slappar!

Förresten, strumporna passade finfint, fast på mig istället för på Kajsa! Jag klagade då inte, och hon log överseende och nöjde sig med att dela de andra med mig. =)

Kramar!

Erika; Haha, så kan det gå, mina passade utmärkt på mig också förresten, så tack för det! :)

Miss K; I'm afraid it might take a while before we actually start planning for a wedding...But when we do, it will probably get mentioned here. :)
