Watching dawn break over the spectacular landscape of Cappadocia is a breathtaking sight and best appreciated from a balloon.
This dramatic terrain is made up of consolidated volcanic ash – known as tuff – that has eroded over millions of years to form surreal shapes and caves. Early Christians hid in these caves to evade persecution by invading Romans. These are still in use today and some have been converted to beautiful little hotels and home-stays, that are way more atmospheric than the larger chains in Goreme.
Below are a few images from our balloon ride.
Until next time…happy travels, no matter where life takes you.
