27 Hours of Travel

Sitting in the Istanbul airport with a 9 hour layover, hot, sticky, in need of a shower, I wonder why I do these things.  Wanting so desperately to take off my jacket but knowing a sleeveless shirt isn’t appropriate when everyone else is covered from head to toe.  So, grumbling to myself, I keep my jacket on.

Who can sit for 9 hours?  I’m itching to move knowing that after a 9 hour layover, I’ll have 9 more hours to sit in a plane.  From there, I have no idea how long the drive will be to the hotel.

The first night will be spent in a nice hotel hopefully recovering from jet lag before being transferred to the Great Wall Box House.  l’m looking forward to three days in this hostel nestled between the Crouching Tiger and Curling Dragon sections of the Great Wall.

Let the hiking adventures begin.  Let’s hope it won’t be in the rain :/.
