Dear Curious Souls,
Many of you will be out of Istanbul during the weekend, profiting from the long holiday in Turkey. However, I would like to invite those of you who intend to stay, to join me for a breakfast at a very beautiful place called the “Perili Köşk” (the Haunted Mansion) on Heybeliada; the second largest of the Prince Islands (http://www.perilikosk.net ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince …)
If you are intimidated by the idea of going to an island for a breakfast, please don’t be so, as I will be giving you all the details on where and when to catch a ferry so it will only be a child’s game to get there.
During the breakfast, while we enjoy the beauty of Istanbul from distance from an island, we might as well have some exchange of views on interesting TED Talks in the midts of our casual conversations.
If you would like to join us, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I can add you to our list.
So hope to see you there on Sunday.
Isil the Curious Soul 🙂

DIRECTIONS TO HEYBELIADA:
From European side of Istanbul: Please go to the Kabataş ferry dock in Beşiktaş. You can take the fenicular metro laine to Kabataş if you are coming from Taksim. If you are coming from somewhere else, then please pay attention that there are two ferry docks in Besiktas. When the sea is on your left hand side, one is before the Dolmabahçe Palace (called Besiktaş dock -that is in the center Besiktaş) and the second is after the Dolmabahçe Palace (called Kabataş). So you need to go to the second one- Kabatash dock. In order to be in Heybeliada at 11, you have need to get the motor boat of the company Dentur or the regular city ferry, both leaving at 9:30.
- From Anatolian Side: If you are in Kadıkoy, then the ferry that leaves Kabataş at 9:30 stops at Kadiköy dock and leaves at 9:50 for Heybeliada. That seems to be the only option.
- If you are in Bostancı: You can take the seabus that goes fast to the island at 9:25 or Mavi Marmara motor boat at 9:30.
