Victorian Travel Abroad

Pack your imaginary bags!--we're heading for 1850's Constantinople! The illustration below (in 2 versions) is from an antique volume, circa (we think) 1840's or so. Just for fun, we thought we'd include a map to help you along the way. Ships, horsedrawn vehicles, and your two feet will have to suffice, of course. No trains to Constantinople (known today as Istanbul) back then! ;)
Happy Creativity!
