hi, perhaps wwm can answer this, looking at going to turkey and then flying to egypt, have a tour of egypt booked and spending some extra time there maby a week or so. I think that will go smoothly. Have not got anything for turkey, was looking at the FEZ bus system but it does not seem to run when I will be there nov-dec ish will be there about 1 mth. Any other ideas on how to get round and any tips for a single white vegetarian female?
7 and a bit mths to go!!!!!

Single, white vegetarian female, eh? Well, if I remember correctly, Turkey's cuisine is very meat-based (which is probably why I enjoyed it so much).

Anyway, I didn't do the Fez bus system...unfortunately, my time got cut down by full flights from the U.S. to Europe, and I had to pare my itinerary down to just Istanbul (Constantinople, Istanbul...). Let's see, though, from Egypt to Turkey, eh?

Did you check the flights on Turkish Airways or Egypt Air? I know Turkish used to run a special that if you buy a flight to Istanbul, you could get another one to a different part of Turkey for little to nothing extra. I think it was their way of getting people off exploring the interior. I know I really wanted to see the Ancient ruins at Ephesus (Izmir), and I'd love to go see Cappodocia with its weird rock formations and stunning scenery (I hear).

Sorry, bp, I guess I'm short on specifics...just lots of enthusiasm!

Istanbul, not Constantinople.
Every gall that's in Constantinople, lives in Istanbul not Constantinople
So if you've got a date in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in Istanbul.
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam.
Why'd they change it I can't say, they just liked it better that way.
So take me back to Constantinople, No you can't go back to Constantinople.
Been a long time gone, Constantinople. Why did Constantinople get the works...
That's nobody's business but the Turks.

Mike ought to appreciate it.

I am glad somebody understands my singing.

Now we need more topics I can sing to, perhaps presidents, New York City, Birdhouses, Racism, Thomas Edison, dozens of topics to cover.

Yes, and as everyone just passes over this post with a confused look thinking I have fallen off my rocker.

So Mike, how many albums do you have?

Funny you should mention albums, Rob. I think my entire album collection (LPs) just got ruined. I worked a double on Thursday, came home from work at 9 pm, opened my apartment door and heard the sound of gushing water. My pipes had burst, and my utility room and closets were soaked. My albums were stored in a milk crate in the closet, and the covers got drenched.

Trying to air them out, but I'm thinking they're goners...

That blows mike.... I would be so distraught if my albums got ruined. I love my vinyl. Sorry to hear that. I had a buddy that lived in an apartment in Peoria and he had his place flood like 3 times. Terrible stuff flooding is.
