Please, assure me that Turkey is safe...

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I will be visiting Istanbul for 7 days in October for one of the stops on our honeymoon and we could not be more excited. I have wanted to visit Turkey ever since studying a bit of Turkish architecture in college and through all of my research I have heard that Turkey is generally a very safe destination. However, both of our families have reservations about the trip after hearing about the recent murder of the New York woman who was visiting Istanbul, as well as the bombing of the American Embassy in Ankara.

As with travel to any city, I think being aware of your surroundings and using common sense goes a long way. However they are reacting as if we are surely going to be kidnapped and murdered! Ridiculous, I know. I chalk it up to them being unfamiliar with the country and its people, but what can ya do? I'm hoping that some of you that live there or have been there recently can attest to the safety of this area and put these worried minds at ease. Please, help!
