We are contemplating a trip to Istanbul (we live in the USA). Our DDs will be 3.5y and 8 months when we travel there. We've traveled quite a bit with our first DD, but nowhere as different from the US as Turkey. Neither of us has ever been to Turkey, so we don't really know what to expect.

I have two questions:

1. I'm looking for books/websites recommendations that discuss travel with kids (for any destination, not just Turkey).

and

2. Advice from anyone who may have been to Turkey with or without kids - just what to expect and how to get more info, especially how difficult/easy it might be with two little ones in tow.

Are we crazy to think about this trip?

I've never travelled out of the country with my kids but we do take several cross-country trips each year. I've found flyertalk.com to be a decent resource. Just beware that there are quite a few angry posters on that site that seem to enjoy venting about families. On the other hand, you'll probably find a large collection of posters that have current experience travelling to the destination you're interested in and many that travel internationally with kids.

Another site I found is flyingwithchildren.blogspot.com - lots of info that I haven't checked out yet.

Enjoy your trip!
