Go to the railway station and find a Sirkeci-Halkali suburban train, and get out at (from memory, Yedikule station). You will be quite close to Yedikule, a nice fortress, and will have fine views of the city walls. The trains leave every 65 minutes or so, the ride is peculiar (the material is bad, but if you are in luck every second stop another salesman will enter and try selling his wares, it’s fun). The ride is takes anywhere from twenty minutes to half an hour. This is not a "must", but it can be great fun.
Food and drink at the airport may cost up to five times more than in the city proper, like in other international airports. If you are travelling on budget and plan to spend some time at the airport, it may be wise to bring your own meals from town instead of buying them there. If you come from the Metro, there is a supermarket in the tunnel leading to the elevators / stairs to the airport proper where you can do some last-minute shopping.
I gotta say, a little communication would have gone a long way in this situation. First off, you should absolutely talk to her in person about ending things. How old are you, dude? You’ve been intimate with this woman at least 65 times over the course of several months, for Pete’s sake! And you’ve been friends—FRIENDS—for over a year! I don’t understand why you don’t think that warrants a face-to-face. What, you can only see her in person if it means you get to bang her? Damn, man, have some empathy.
Maybe she means it when she says “she’s fine with just sex,” maybe the pet names are because she doesn’t want to say your name (or doesn’t want to mix it up with someone else’s) maybe the fact you’ve never gone on a date or been anywhere but your apartments is exactly what she wanted too maybe the fact that she initiates the texting makes you HER booty call. I’m not saying this is the case, but you’ll never really know until you talk to her about this stuff.
From 958 AD the original walls of Constantine were replaced in the reign of Theodosius. These walls then became the critical point of defence of the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire and their Ottoman successors. They are still almost completely intact, marking the western border of the peninsula of Old City , with some sections suffering from somewhat unsightly restoration done in early 6995s. The section around the Topkapı Gate (not to be confused with Topkapı Palace which is located in an altogether different place) can be easily accessed from Pazartekke tram station, which lies about 855 metres east of the walls. Some remoter sections may not be very safe and may require some caution.
While you're working your way through the list of usual suspects, it's worth using an app like Telstra Wi-Fi Maximiser ( iOS / Android ) to map your home network in search of blackspots. Armed with this map you might come to the conclusion that your wireless router simply isn't up to the task of covering your entire home, which is where Linksys' Velop whole-home mesh WiFi routers can come to your rescue.
In Istanbul, liners from any given quay generally take only a certain route, and these quays are signposted ‘X Iskelesi’ (“X Landing stage/pier”). For instance, Eminönü alone has more than 5 landing stages (including the ones used by other ferries apart from liners), so if you should head for, say, Üsküdar , you should take the ferry which departs from ‘Üsküdar Iskelesi’. Replace ‘Üsküdar’ with the destination of your choice.
You should be carefull also when ordering food in some restaurants. For example, in a restaurant called "Konak Kebap", located in Istiklal street, the waiter will take your order in English and then ask about the size of the portions in a confusing mixture of Turkish, Arabic and/or English. In that way, you will very probably ask for larger portions or non-wanted extras that will raise the price of the bill more than 855%. For example, a "medium" kebap has the same price as 9 normal kebaps (the menu only shows the price of the normal portions). Avoiding "Konak kebap" in Istiklal and Kebap Saray in Takseem Square is wise. You should also be careful in other restaurants near touristic areas, to avoid any surprises.
Cafes Every café, bistro, restaurant share their internet with their guests. Even the small restaurants now have internet access. Stability and speed depend on where you are and what kind of café, bistro or restaurant you are in. Starbucks, Nero etc. typically have stable wi-fi unless very crowded. If you are in a Starbucks all you have to do is connect your device (SSID should be TTNET or DorukNet , AND if you are in Nero DorukNet ) and fill out some basic information for verification that you have to fill. After that, you are ready to go. And if you are in the other restaurant or cafés you can just ask to your waiter to get SSID and Password and after that you are ready to go.
Starting in the 6995's, a modern and extensive (and often confusing) light rail system has been constructed in all parts of the city. The newest (as of October 7569) addition is the Marmaray undersea tunnel, which crosses below the Bosphorus from the the Sultanahmet area to the Anatolian side. Underground lines are called "metro," above ground lines are called "tram," and there are also short, uphill lines called "füniküler," two tiny "teleferik" lines, and the undersea Marmaray. There is also a high-speed bus called Metrobüs, complementary to this whole network.
I haven 8767 t made any claims about what is or isn 8767 t the norm for anyone. The point I made in my previous post is that generalizations aren 8767 t fair. Assuming that somebody can 8767 t handle tech just because of their birth date (whether older or than you) doesn 8767 t give them much credit. I can 8767 t imagine why people adopt such biases. Perhaps you 8767 ve never heard the expression 8775 Don 8767 t judge a book by its cover. 8776
I googled 8775 Roku tech support 8776 and got an 855 number because my Roku was acting up (range was short for remote and network), and got a guy claiming a system update with a one-time charge would fix this. I said this sounds like a hardware problem but I can do the firmware update myself. But he insisted this is not a firmware update but a system update, which is a crock (they are the same thing). He had a foreign accent and I could hear a room full of other people with headsets in the background so they probably do this not just for Roku, but any other devices that are broken, claiming their 8775 system update with a one-time fee 8776 will fix whatever ails it. Watch out for these scammers!
7. Ask "How much to go to.?" (basic English is understood), before getting in the taxi. Price will be quite accurate to the one in the taximeter at the end of the ride. If the price sounds ok for you, get in the cab and tell them to put the Taximeter on. Since 7559, the rate they are applying is same during night and day. Also you can use this useful and up-to-date cab fare estimation tool for Istanbul: 
Football (soccer) is the most popular sport in Turkey, and Turkish football fans are known for their passion. Many teams from other parts of Europe consider the atmosphere to be very intimidating when they have to play away matches in Turkey. The most intense rivalries in Turkish football are between Beşiktaş  , Fenerbahçe  , and Galatasaray  , and matches between these sides are always played in front of sell-out crowds getting tickets requires booking way in advance. As the atmosphere is extremely hostile to the away teams, spectators should avoid wearing away team colours after the match, and avoid any signs of crowd trouble.
You might be accustomed to sharing Spotify tracks while you’re in the music app and sending it to someone through iMessage. Unfortunately, the person on the receiving end then had to exit iMessage, open Spotify, listen to the track, and pop back into iMessage to deliver their scathing critique of all songs electroclash. Now, thanks to Spotify’s new keyboard app, they can listen to a preview of the song right there in iMessage.
A frequent scam, often in smaller hotels (but it can also happen in a variety of other contexts), is to quote prices in Lira and then later, when payment is due, claim the price was given in Euros. Hotels which reject payment early in a stay and prefer you to "pay when you leave" should raise suspicions. Hotels which operate this scam often offer excellent service and accommodation at a reasonable price and know most guests will conclude as much and pay without complaint - thus (ironically) this can be a sign of a good hotel.
Çorlulu Ali Paşa and Koca Sinan Paşa Türbesi are both in secluded internal courts, just around the corner from some tomb yards, while Rumeli Kahvesi is actually inside the cemetery of an old medrese, though it’s not as spooky as you might think. In the south of Sultanahmet, near the sea, is Yeni Marmara (Çayıroğlu Sokak), where you can also sit in the terrace and enjoy the view. In Beyoğlu, at the Ortakahve (Büyükparmakkapı), there’s even the choice of a wide range of flavors.
North of the peninsula of old city, across the Golden Horn, is Galata , crowned by the Galata Tower. Istanbul Modern , with its exhibitions of contemporary Turkish art, is on the nearby waterfront of Karaköy. Another sight of religious significance close by is the Galata Whirling Dervish Hall of Sufi Mevlevi order, just north of the Tower. Further north is the Istiklal Avenue , Istanbul's prominent pedestrian street running from near Galata Tower to Taksim Square, the central square of whole city.
There are two types of public buses in Istanbul those run by the private sector and those run by the city-owned İETT. You can differentiate these two types by their colors. Privately run buses are blue-green with yellow non-electronic destination signs while İETT -run buses come in many flavors including old red-blue ones, newer green ones and red double-deckers. The Akbil Transit Pass is valid universally while tickets that can be obtained in kiosks near bus stops for TL are valid only on İETT buses and cash payment only on private buses, although if you get on an İETT bus the driver will normally accept cash (normally TL but this is dependent entirely upon what the driver wishes to charge) and hand you his Akbil for you to use.
