I'm planning a short trip to Sulaymaniyah next month to attend a weekend conference. I've lived in the Middle East for three years, but this will be my first trip to Iraq. Can anyone tell me what the security situation is like in Iraqi Kurdistan, and particularly Sulaymaniyah, at present? Thanks.
Im planning to make a solo trip to Iran and Iraq in october,
Plan is to spend some time in Iran and then continue from Teheran through Orumieh to Arbil. Crossing the piransahr/haji omaran border. Anyone here tried this route before? Anything i should know about this route? I suppose it's all safe, but just don't want to get in trouble.

Hello, has anyone been to Erbil, Kurdistan this year or late last year?
If so I would be most grateful for first hand information on the cost of living, the things that I should take, and the things that I should not do. I will be there for quite a while so any information that you feel may be of use to me would be well received. I've travelled in Lebanon in 2004 and 2005 so am used to the basic customs of the Arab world and speak basic Arabic but have little knowledge of Kurdistan. Thank-you and the best of luck to all.
Can someone simply list some sites that will put me on the fast track to getting what I need as an american to travel to Iraq, including tickets?
