Trip to Jeddah and Belgrade Flying Turkish Airlines Business Class

Video on YouTube

When I bought my ticket to Australia last spring, I did not consider visiting Saudi Arabia at all so I booked my ticket back home from Sydney to Stockholm with British Airways and Turkish Airlines. After a few days of pondering, I decided to rebook my flight with Turkish Airlines to Jeddah and then booked a separate flight with Aegean and LOT with a 3 nights stop in Belgrade. It was definitely worth it as I was able to visit Jeddah for the first time (visiting the Old Jeddah Al Balad among others) as well as catching up with my old friend from high school. It was a very short stay in Jeddah so it was limited to the Old Town and the King Faisal´s Fountain. Below are some photos during my trip to Jeddah.
