In mid August I need to get to Cekmekoy from Caddebostan ( Bagdat ST area) daily...the taxis cost 30tl each way and it takes about half an hour each trip from where I l...

Dear Sarah, I cannot let you say "It happens in crowded area". That is not a characteristic for İstanbul. I agree, we are talking about Istanbul are we not?!? Yes, I'm sure there are one or two idiot guys here ( uneducated and originally from further afield...) but in the main, Istanbul i...

Sorry to hear about your experience...scary! I have a male golden too ( actually he's a golden but totally cream!), so far no problems with the street dogs they come and have a sniff sometimes but thankfully he's cool with them and not interested, but it just shows you never know. It worries me too ...
