I saw your travel plan, i can say wow wow wow 😊 This is my dream too but i should say you if you would like to visit these all places you have to run and you will be tired so much, you will not enjoy much. I am thinking that if i travel somewhere i will be calm and i dont run in hurry and I should try to see everything. I am living in Istanbul and i have been Ankara, Samsun, Trabzon, Diyarbakir, Urfa, Gaziantep, Malatya, Kapadokya, Konya, Antalya, Kas, Pamukkale, Izmir, Bursa. If i were you, i divide 2 and next year you will come again.
But this is your plan.
And i will say you some advice:
If possible you should get a guide.
If you can do, you shoul go to Trabzon by plane, there is no train to trabzon, Istanbul to Trabzon 12-14 hours by bus.
You should do travel in day not night at east,
When you arrive somewhere, suddenly you shoud find a hotel and you should buy ticket where you want to go next. In the evening maybe you find hotel expensive and maybe you can not find bus ticket.
You have to make good plan abaut city and decide how many days you will stay and go to next city.
I am saying you again, you should not run you shoul give enought time yourself and enjoy. Because you will not come same place again, you should try to calture and all touristic places.
I dont know, you will come alone or not. If you are 3-4 person you can rent a car and you can do where you want.
You can ask me what you want to know. You can ask me in here or by my email,
