Trip Report London to Istanbul by train...

Jump to last reply

I needed to reach Istanbul from my home in the UK a few weeks ago, so naturally I hopped on a Eurostar and competed the 2,104 mile journey from London to Turkey overland by train.

This was actually the fifth journey I've made between London and Istanbul (the third round trip!) since 1995, but this time I had a camcorder so was able to make a video summary of the trip, an epic 3-night journey in 12 minutes...

It might de-mystify train travel across Europe from the Thames to the Bosporus, and show how relatively simple, safe and straightforward it is - If it inspires anyone to see more than the inside of a plane, great!
