We have tickets to and from Istanbul. And that's still as far as we've gotten.
We have not yet worked out where we're staying in Istanbul, or for how long, or which other cities (beyond Ephesus, which is supposed to be extraordinary) we want to visit while we're there.
We do, however, have one piece of the trip firmly under control.
While we were at Nick's parents' house a couple weeks ago, we were talking to his dad about our honeymoon travels. He asked where we were connecting. Nick said he thought Frankfurt.
It turns out his dad, in his years of travel for work, has gone through that airport a million times. They started talking details - what time we're getting in, how long the layover is, etc.
While this detailed exchange was going on, Betty and I got into a far more interesting conversation with his mother about Turkish rugs and crafts.
At some point Nick interrupted. And said, "Sweetie! My dad knows exactly where we should have lunch on our layover!"
Big sigh of relief. Lord knows we wouldn't want to miss a meal.
