“Every hundred feet … the world changes.” – Robert BolañoIf you want to get to Buyukada Island, in the Princes Island chain just an hour ferry from Istanbul, it’s easy. And cheaper than you might expect. We took the recommendations of this blogger on multiple occasions during our trip. Don’t pay full tourist fare from your hotel desk. Simply get to the correct dock and hop on the right boat. Take a swimsuit for Buyukada, where you can take a dip, and plan to spend an entire day boating between the other islands, which are also worth a visit. There are no cars on the Princes, and your mode of transport is either your feet, a bike or a horse drawn carriage. Romance anyone?
