Name Cairo to Istanbul

I plan on backpacking from Cairo to Istanbul. I will be traveling on a budget. I am 35, married (but will be traveling solo as my husband HATES traveling!) and very easygoing. Plan on meeting up with couchsurfers along the way as I love to meet local residents. My planet ticket is already bought so the dates are obviously set in stone!

Todd Hi Kate, a bit of a coincidence... someone else has posted a trip with exactly the same name and the same picture, but going at a different time. Maybe it's worth sharing ideas on itineraries. The other trip is here: http://globetrooper.com/cairo-to-istanbul-2010

Kate Hello, i am copping out a bit and doing a tour group for Egypt and Jordan but then I will head from Amman-Damascus-Beirut-Aleppo-Sanliurfa-Goreme-Istanbul. i want to spend more time in each city and do day trips from there. Still deciding whether to do a long day trip to Palmyra or stay overnight. What is yours like and can you let me know when you come back how everything went?

Paola Hi Kate! Im going to the Middle East around the same time (end of February to May) I was going to start in Turkey but Im flexible and I prefer to travel with someone. Are you still going for this trip?

Kate Yes I am! However there are a few changes that I made. i will be doing a tour group for Egypt with a friend that starts March 10 ends March 26th in Amman. THen I will head out to Syria, Lebanon and Turkey. i decided that I will skip out on the coast of Turkey as I want to spend more time in Cappadocia and Urfa. I have a possible travel partner for Syria, but the more the merrier (and cheaper!)
