I have just returned from 24 amazing hours in Istanbul. I booked a rather spontaneous hotel and flight 3 hours before departure. The purpose was to watch the football match between Fenerbahce and Bursaspor because I wanted to experience the season’s opening match. When I arrived to Istanbul I had good breakfast at Huqqa. 2 hours before the match I went to the stadium, where it was teeming with people. Finally, I came through the security check, which robbed me of my power banks (oh no!) and my perfume since no larger items were forbidden for security reasons. The atmosphere in the stadium was spectacular! It was so amazing to be part of something bigger, and hear everyone cheering for the same. The match ended 2-1 to Fenerbahce, which was the icing on the cake. I now sit with a hoarse voice and filled with the energy I experienced, which I must definitely try again!
