The task for the day is to figure out the route for my ferry trip from Florida to Bangkok. It’s a hard job because every stop outside of the US entails hundreds of dollars in landing fees so I have to figure out how to make each leg as close to the Navajo’s 1000 range as possible. It’s also hard because sometimes their are two different airports that are about the same distance and I just get to choose based on where I want to land. My question of the day is from Augsburg Germany I can either go to Istanbul, Turkey before heading to Jordan or I can go to Corfu, Greece. Now I’ve never been to Turkey and have always wanted to see what Istanbul is like but I have been to Corfu and it’s one of the most beautiful places on earth and a favorite stop of mine that I haven’t seen in years. Hmmm, what to do, what to do. I know let’s take a vote, where do you all think I should go?

Pondered this question for three days.
Fugget, Istanbul is/was an awesome place when I went oh too many years ago. Lets you put another new pin on your wall map.
Istanbul is my vote.
I’d say it depends on whether this is for the show or not. For a wonderful “fish-out-of-water” piece, Istanbul and a trip to the Market and being heckled in broken English and Turkish and getting exasperated on whether you got ripped-off would be good TV 🙂
But realistically, on a long trip where you need to stay mentally aware you probably would be best served with some true downtime.
I wondered if things have changed since the whole EU kerfuffle but I checked on TripAdvisor and people are still enamored by the place: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g189456-i362-Ionian_Islands.html
