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.

My flight is confirmed – the die is cast. I leave on Thursday, May 3rd and return Saturday, May 19th. One stop at JFK, then mega-hours in the air until I get to Istanbul! I headed for the library yesterday and snagged as many travel books on Turkey as I could find, but I’m sure I’ll be buying some. I know I want at least one to take with me – maybe Lonely Planet, which is usually pretty comprehensive.

I’ll be posting intermittently from now on until I get closer to the trip. WAHOO!!!!!
