It looks like my first trip outside the UK will be to Turkey, with my aunt sometime in May.
Does anyone have suggestions on itineraries, attractions, etc? We will have maybe three weeks, and our tentative plan is to start in Istanbul, go down the Aegean coast, and then come back across the plateau via Cappadocia and Ankara.
I have, as preparatory reading material:
- The Lonely Planet Turkey Guide
- The New Turkey (Chris Morris)
- Turkey: A Modern History (Erik Zurcher)
Note added 17 July: I've finished my Turkey travelogue - 160+ photos and 10000+ words.
