Hello == would welcome any advice and comments on a trip a friend and I are planning for next summer with final desination Istanbul ... we would like to fly to London to spend a few days and then complete the trip to Istanbul via train. Any suggestions, definite do's and don'ts, recommendations, and/or other thoughts? Our hope is to stop off on our ticket for an overnight or two, but are just beginning to think about the possible trip routes and their advantages or disadvantages. Any advice on any aspect of this trip would be appreciated.
Many thanks, Linda
