comment Travel to Turkey, How to Insure travel in case of Travel Advisory and Escalation
It's extremely unlikely that the travel advisory would extend to the whole country, only a few areas close to the Syrian border.

comment How many 6,000 meter peaks are there in Asia? In the world?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is purely about geography with no relevance to travel.

comment Overnight train: London to Berlin
There is an option to cross Germany at night, but the train arrives in Berlin at 4:30am. You have to catch that train between Amsterdam (19:01) and Cologne (22:28). Paris gets you there later in the morning without departing from London much later, and the price is likely to be more expensive.

comment Do I need an airport transit visa through Switzerland if I have a Schengen visa?
The situation is the same as travel.stackexchange.com/questions/14692/… (which should have been picked as a duplicate). Your Schengen visa is good for entering Schengen at any place, including Switzerland on your way to Spain and back.

It's better to have a more specific question. The original version didn't mention that this was for air travel.

comment Leaving Schengen region to reset 90 days
@Flimzy The rules are in months rather than days, I don't know how that's interpreted. Assuming it was 90 days in 180 days, then in your scenario, you would only be allowed 1 day. You'd then have to spend one day outside, and you could come back for 89 more days after that.

comment Is the visa-free entry to Schengen region multiple entry or single entry?
This doesn't look right: you don't have to leave Schengen on day 180 if you haven't used your 90 days. For example, if you visit Schengen on January 1st just for the day, then come back on June 29, you don't have to leave on June 30, you can stay for three months minus one day. (The rules say “three months” and “half-year”, not “90 days” and “180 days”, by the way).
