Hullo all, Rather bored today at work so came up with the idea to travel from Teheran to Istanbul overland. From the information I have gathered its definitely feasable, although I understand the situation may be fairly volatile in some areas, which I definitely intend to avoid. No use being daft. Was wondering whether any of the far travelled members of ARRSE have ever attempted such a journey and, if so, would they have any information or pointers for me? I'm fairly well travelled in the Middle East, but have never been to Turkey or Iran. Not too worried about Turkey but about the information in the border zone is rather sketchy and Iran in general come across as way too urbane and easy. Many thanks in advance for any information!
