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.

comment How to get a visa for Iran
A few years later but I'm finally getting to Iran. I ordered and paid for my authorization code on Feb 24th 2014 and received it today (Apr 8th 2014), this was due to a lengthy holiday period in Iran. So it can take quite a while, try to order it early. Now I'm waiting for the actual visa.
