Cape Town, South Africa – A New Way Of Doing Things

Our 21 hour travel day began by us taking the hour-long train ride from downtown Istanbul to the underground train line that would take us to the airport. From there we checked in, walked around and had something to eat. It was the biggest and busiest airport we’ve ever seen. There are over 500 gates ...
