Pamukkale, Turkey Day 144

My overnight bus was both better, and worse than I thought it would be. I was seated in the very last seat of the bus, so I couldn’t recline my chair at all. The man in front of me had his ALL the way back, so leg room was limited. I had to go pee […]

Goreme, Turkey Day 143

Oh, what a fabulous last day in Goreme. I had a full day to spend here because my overnight bus (shudder!) didn’t leave until 8:00. The weather was beautiful and I thought a walk to the top of the castle in nearby Uchisar would be a perfect way to spend the day. The view from the […]

Mount Nemrut Tour Day 142

Today was the last day of our tour. What a fun couple of days this was! It’s really great sometimes to not have to think about what you’re going to do yourself, and having such a small group made it feel like it wasn’t really even a tour, more like a group of friends traveling […]

Mount Nemrut Tour Day 141

OK, today was my earliest wake up call, like, EVER! 3:00am my alarm went off. That hurt, especially since I didn’t go to bed until 10:30, then there was this loud banging noise that would go off every 10 minutes or so on the floor below. SO annoying! Whatever the case, I was so excited […]

Goreme to Mt. Nemrut Tour Day 140

I left Goreme today at 9:30 for my two night tour to Mount Nemrut. I’ve been really looking forward to this part of the trip. Mount Nemrut is east of Cappadocia and has oh so many interesting things to see in the region. I was first on the bus and quickly learned that there would […]

Goreme,Turkey Day 139

Another bright and early start for me. I am not a morning person, but when it comes to getting up to do something as cool as this, I don’t seem to have as much trouble getting up! I was in my section of basket with a very nice family from New York City. They adopted […]

Goreme, Turkey Day 138

Oh, did I ever have an early wake up call this morning… I was expecting to get up at 4:30 am because I had a hot air balloon ride that I was being picked up at 5 am for. I had my alarm set and a wake up call arranged so I was ready! What […]

Istanbul to Goreme Day 137

Today I was smart and took the 5 euro shuttle bus to the airport rather than the 45 euro taxi. Or “taksi” as they call it. It was a short and uneventful flight to Kayseri.  I highly recommend flying vs. the bus, it only cost 75 CAD and you’re there in an hour and a […]
