A military attempt to take over the Turkish government appears to be in progress. The military has blocked the bridges going from the Asian side of Istanbul to the European side. Something is going on in Ankara but the press seems to be suppressing the activity there.
Sadly 10 people were killed in yet another senseless attack this time at the international terminal of Ataturk airport (Istanbul) in Turkey. http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/two-explosions-hit-istanbuls-ataturk-airport-injuries-reported.aspx?pageID=238&nID=101035&NewsCatID=341
Hello again! And another question on a different topic.
We would like to get from Kars to Georgia in one day (it will probably be Sunday). I read some posts on this topic and it seem this should be possible even though it may be a bit challenging. In latest LP Turkey it is mentioned that there is a daily Golden Turizm bus from Kars to Tbilisi. Can anybody confirm that? Another option would be to catch a dolmus to Ardahan first – any idea if they are running on Sundays as well? From Ardahan, does…
Hi folks! Despite the seemingly never-ending stream of troubkling News from TR, still haven't given up on the August trip there. I have one specific question. We will be spending two nights and one full day in Van. We´d certainly like to go to Akdamar island (by public transport). Are there regular dolmuses (we’ll be there during the week)? Does it normally take long for the boats to fill? Are boats running at all this summer considering that the tourism is probably not exactly booming in the…

How is the weather for istambul, cappadocia and me nemrut in October??!
Thanks in advance for your answers
We are due to travel to Cappadocia on Monday and I just wanted to check how things are there. I'm assuming that everything is fine but it would be helpful to hear from anyone who is actually there at the moment! I keep getting worried emails from family in England, so feeling a little cautious! Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Hi I'm trying to call Atlasjet from Australia. The number on my paper says 0850 222 00 00. How do I dial that from Australia? Am I supposed to add the country code 90 for Turkey and drop the first zero? I've tried many combinations to work out what this number is and the call just drops - never connects. I need to speak to an operator about a booking - can you help?
next Friday I have some transit time to spend in Istanbul. My flight is scheduled to land at 14:25. I plan to be again at the airport around 21:00 (my flight will leave at 23:45 and I like to be at the airport well in advance).
I have been to Istanbul several times and this time I would like to see Yedikule, which I have never managed to see. I know it's been closed for a few years but I cannot find in the internet udapted information about its re-opening. Can somebody please confirm…
