Guidebooks are all-important and so I was happy to hear that the latest Lonely Planet Turkey guidebook will be released on April 18th, just in time for my trip. Since I already have the Rough Guide, I’ll be bringing both along. I haven’t decided yet whether to rip them up and carry them in pieces or keep them intact. The Eyewitness series has an Istanbul guide and I’m seriously thinking about getting that as well. They’re heavy, though – I’m not sure if it’s worth it for the 4-5 days total I’ll be in Istanbul.

Obsessing

Posted by Mardee on January 1, 2007

Argghhh….I need to get off my computer. Now that I’ve decided, I’m obsessively searching for any and all Turkey travel references online and adding them to my links. I need to remember I have plenty of time to plan. The most comprehensive site I’ve found so far is the Turkey Travel Planner, which has an interesting 14-day sample itinerary that I plan to look into.

As far as when to go, I’ve decided to shoot for the first two weeks of May. If those don’t work, I might go a week later but I don’t want to run into the summer tourism glut, so I’ll probably hold off till September or October.

Next move – the library. The travel section awaits…
