Finally heading east from Istanbul

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. We’ve been working our butts off on a video for the Second Home Hostel here in Istanbul. If the dang thing ever uploads properly, you’ll see it soon enough.

In about three hours, we’ll be leaving on a 26-hour train to a city in Eastern Turkey called Malatya. From there we plan to visit a famous mountain called Nemrut Dagi (“Nem-rut Dog-kuh”) before crossing the border into Iran. It’s raining here in Istanbul (for the fourth day straight) so we’re excited to move on.

The train ride should be great since we have our own sleeper cabin. So we’ll be kicking our feet up, taking in the scenery and maybe enjoying a bottle of wine. We have some catching up to do around the blog, so expect both Laura and I to upload some photo-roundups within the next few days, or as soon as we have decent Internet again. Hope everyone is well, wherever you are.
