Stopover in Komotini

At the beginning of July, we took a family trip to Constantinople/Istanbul, which is about 9 hours away by car. To break up the long trip, we spent a night in Komotini, an interesting city harkening back to the days of the Ottoman Empire, with large Muslim and Jewish minorities.

We found a hotel with a great swimming pool for the kids, which is just what they needed after 5 hours in the car.

After a swim, we went into Komotini to find some dinner. Here are the kids enjoying the ice cream at the end of the meal.

The next day, it was back on the road.
