Trip Description:

This leg, the Orient Express, sure shows the necessity of making sure what you think you understand is really what you are being told. When I got my ticket I asked for departure time in Wien and arrival time in Istanbul. On the paper given back to me was 8PM and 10AM. Unfortunately, which I did not know, it was at 10AM two days later, not the next day...needless to say my food/drink prep was woefully inadequate, but i made friends with my train cabin mates and had plenty to eat from what they had...cukes, goats cheese, olives and bread/. It was wonderful.
