Wow it’s been so long have I not been able to blog …?
First of all I am really thankful to the LoRD that we were able to travel back again. Yes international travel and my family been discussing whether we will go in Crete Greece or in Turkey but I dug even more my knowledge about Turkey and because this time we just wanted something so different … anyway we’re often to go in the seas, ocean or beach , so we just decided to change a little and this time was an intense itinerary but certainly worth it ! So ~ All we did was kept our eyes wide open ~ …. We were so thrilled to be here ….
10 days trip In Turkey and this trip was organized : to make our travel easier we booked this trip with Boomerang and when we landed in Istanbul we been look after by https://verymed.fr/. We were 16 persons in the group families with teens. Our guide was really kind and his Name is Urr he is Turkish and he speak fluently in French and guided us throughout the trip Because huh! not everyone in Turkey could speak English so you’ll get lost if you travel here without guide.
First day and 2nd day : Istanbul
To make it short I just made some video :
Bosphore sight seeing … on top
my best-loved place we’ve been in Turkey is Cappadocia … they said that your trip in TURKEY would not be completed without going in ~ Cappadocia…… Cappadocia is such a Marvelous place …We were searching for the typical turkish culture and here we discovered in this place because Turkey has territory in both Europe and Asia, vast majority of its territory is considered part of Asia.
I can’t even picture we reached this place from Instabul -Ankara- to here, it’s really in the middle of nowhere if you can only imagine the duration of this roadtrip huh! … BUT certainly worth to see !!!! We visited some of the caves & upon entering the caves there are womens selling handmade dolls and we were told not to make them irritable hahaha lol … ok next topic ; there are actually plentifulness sites and they said that Here In Cappadocia where the Christian hid in the past.
We also did hot air balloons for SUNSET and we even got our certifications, it was an exclusive experience I could tell well it cost an arm and a leg !!!! But really an extraordinary adventure And they even offered champagne after the rides !!! Weird right ? But that’s how it is here !!!
We also went to witness the handmade carpet makers the finest carpet in the world that can only be found here in Turkey that is according to the info and of course we didn’t leave without empty hands. And we also visited Jewelry shop , I’m not fond of jewelries so we didn’t buy any jewelry neither my daughter and I’m not really fond of jewelry except if it’s given or gift I never buy for myself. No photos though for things that aren’t appealing hahaha.
Moreover, food food food yes food ~ we ate Pottery meat Kebab a-must-try in CappAdociA cooked in a pot and then cracked in front of you and it even tasted like (Caldereta filipino dish)so I think filipino food does not deviate from turkish dishes.
I don’t know how would I delivered well my stories but It’s not oriental here, Cuz I thought it was but We were so wrong ( stigma of media ) … Turkey adopted many facets of European culture and for what I had seen they seem to be divided into two, Europeans and have Asianism and their food is most like Greeks because they were occupied by greeks dunno the real history though hahaha. and then the most unexciting part was that we were obliged to watched religious men dance because it was part of the tour and we were all just drowsy during thAt part -because they did nothing but dance around for an hour….. ( It may perhaps be correct if it was only for 15 minutes but that’s life ~ You can’t make everything go your way, all the time.) And before skipping we are grateful that we have an amazing guide because
people here don’t speak english. So I guess my stories will end here… it was WONDROUS Tour we had seen a lot of unsual things, different Culture, uncountable strange Landscapes , food, kind and polite people.
For more videos please watch my YouTube channel :
After Cappadocia , we went straight to Konya then visited Mevlana museum
then to Pamukkale and hierapolis … we slept one night at the thermal resort, there are so many thermal resorts there and they say it cures skin diseases.
The last place we visited was The place Ephesus located in Izmir, it has an outstanding history just Google it cause Zero fuel to tell my stories …. But I assured you Ephesus has a beautiful story and I am fortunate to be able to come here and witness it with my own eyes and imagining how people lived here.
I wish I could have included you on our tour even just by watching my video and pictures and hope that you liked the places we went to and in the next segment and I will try to make my video more interesting … or will show you later our video through drone if I will have time to do so cuz hibernation calling …. so bye for now… #cappadocia #kapadokya #cappadoce #turquie #turkey #anatolie #anatolia #turkish #hotairballoon #Göreme #fairychimney #hoodoo #Ürgüp #Kaymakli #Derinkuyu #Uçhisar
