Cappadocia, Turkey

TURKEY | Sunday, 10 August 2014 | Views [247]

I spent three days in the Cappadocia area of Turkey. Really amazing rock formations called fairy chimneys. Many of the chimneys have caves carved into them that are hundreds of years old. I did a lot of hiking, a little mountain biking and took my first hot air balloon ride. The area relies on tourism and a lot of the hotels fashion themselves to look like caves. If I would've known prior to my visit there was a hotel called Flintstones, I would've stayed there. I was hesitant to take the balloon ride, mostly for financial reasons, but it turned out to be money well spent.

A quick recap. I visited 19 countries in 212 days, traveled 46,000 miles by air,15,000 miles by land and spent about $25,000. My feet got beat up a few times and I twisted my ankle a couple of times.  No plane, train, car, bus, tuk tuk or taxi mishaps, not even a fender bender. I wasn't threatened or harassed and amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. It's hard to believe seven months have passed. As I said in my first entry.....a wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of living. It sure was!
