@DanS - 1. The price, 2. I have a general rule to not use taxis when I travel.

comment If the Ankara-Tehran train is full, is it worth showing up at the platform hoping for cancellations?
I'm not travelling to get somewhere quickly but to enjoy the trip and I prefer 60 hours on a train broken up by a ferry ride to 30 hours on a bus. Thank you for your input.

I met someone who tried to take the train a few weeks ago. At the stations in Turkey he was told the train was fully booked for weeks ahead. I rather not take the bus, sleeper on the train is much more comfortable.

comment PDF tickets on phone on Deutsche Bahn
I tried showing the ticket on a kindle or tablet and even though their scanner worked on the screen, they still wanted a printed paper version.
