Words aren’t coming, but we are overdue to post. Maybe it’s a world full of colliding egos that have my mind too preoccupied to write much. Instead, I’ll share 24 super shots from our first couple of days in Uchisar – part of Turkiye’s Cappadocia region (25 if you count the shot at the top of the page).
When we visit these picturesque places, I long to have a real camera. My iPhone Xs will have to do.
Quick background on what’s pictured:
- The landscape’s exotic design came from millions of years of wind and rain on volcanic ash
- The Hittites settled here around 1,600 BC
- In later empires, people carved homes into the caves; castles were like apartment buildings
- Underground cities are around the region – some still undiscovered
And, of course, the hot air balloons are pictured. The balloons made the region more of a tourist destination than the alien-like landscape.
We haven’t gone up in a balloon yet… stay tuned…
The Cappadocia region of Turkiye is considered a UNESCO Heritage Site. Read more about it at the official website.
Thanks for visiting!
