Photos that could only be Turkey
Wasting time can be a lot of fun at Istanbul Airport
I've found if you pick the right airline, delays can be quite enjoyable. While waiting for a flight at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, I was fortunate enough to be able to spend the time in Turkish Airlines' amazing CIP Lounge. With everything from prayer rooms to a golf simulator, there really is something for everyone. I spent some time playing pool in the library, then I played a quick nine holes at Torrey Pines on the golf simulator and finally I watched a Frank Sinatra concert in the theater. All this while dining on delicious Turkish food of all types. My only regret is I didn't get a massage from one of the roaming masseuses.
