Getting preposterous on the Bosphorus*

Holidayeee! Celebraaaate!

Oh yeah, it's that time of year. Every so often I get the opening bars from the Madonna classic in my head and I know that summer vacation is here.

Such joy.

No work for three weeks.

Tonight I'm taking a flight to Istanbul and I'll be getting all preposterous by the Bosphorus for the next few days before heading to a fabulous villa on the Turquoise Riviera for a couple of weeks.

I'm guessing Istanbul will involve a whole raft of ridiculousness - a little hammam therapy, a little mosque visiting, a little bit of Topkapi palace harem envy and a spot of nocturnal Turkish bear-chasing.

No doubt there'll be a kebab and a cocktail in there somewhere too.

So, while you are all slaving away at your day jobs, think of me, cruising past the Golden Horn, enjoying the sun on my face, the wind in my hair and the view of Turkish sailors in their cute little uniforms.

Before I go, I'm going to leave you with one more post. As tales go, it's comedy, tragedy and a life-lesson all rolled into one.

It'll be with you soon.

Meanwhile, take care of yourselves in my absence. I'll try and post from the coast, but I'm not making any promises. If all else fails, I'll see you at the end of the month!

Miss me loads!

I WILL miss you loads (even though I get behind and have to catch up), but do you do these things by yourself? Where is FB?

Oooh, have a blast and come back with loads of stories. I just had a week off myself. But it was not so much fun, I was in bed with the hog wog.

You arse... How very dare you. That's alright, I'll stay and keep the economy afloat.

Now did you turn the stove off?

Lock all the doors?

Ah, screw it. Have fun and bring me back something nice, one of those Turkish bears would look great at the end of my bed!
