21st- 24th April 2016
So we have decided to take Europe for year 2016. Yay!~
I took us almost 24 hours on the go before we arrived our first destination, Cappadocia. we arrived at Gerome Cave house in the night time, and we were so drained in excitement to finally get a proper bed to sleep.
This region is located at the central of Turkey and the weather was super chilly in the morning ,and worse in the night time.
Our stay at the cave house came with complimentary breakfast.
We enjoyed the breakfast while observing the hot air balloon in the freezing morning sky. What a wonderful start of a day.
It was an impromptu itinerary when we booked a tour around Gerome.
We went to a few attractive valleys around the regions, yes, this place offers a numbers of valleys to explore and the view was breathtaking.
We were also brought to the underground city, where the ancient people survived from the war in the old days.
And got lunch, we were served with main dish of turkish-styled couscous with chicken. And now, seeing back this pic I can feel my mouth starts watering. Craps!
Apart from hot balloon air, Gerome is also well known of its cave houses. And we took the opportunity to stay there to experience sleep in the freezing night.I tell you, it was awesomely cold!
Sunrise in Gerome was not something to be missed when reaching here. The view was indeed spectacular, with hot air ballon filled the Gerome air.
From Capp, we flew back to Istanbul. In here, it is a bit hotter and chaotic that Gerome. The attractions are a lot more to visit and appreciate.
We took the chance to cross Bosphorus ferry cruise as well. The breeze was so cold and yet it was an enjoyable cruise.
We dropped our luggage and backpacks at the apartment before we left to city. First of all, having lunch overseeing the Blue Mosque.
We purchased Istanbul card for easy accessibility of its public transportation to go around and about Istanbul city.
Amongst other places we went were the well-known Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmet Camii (Blue Mosque) and Istiklal street (tram).
Oh yes! It was my birthday. Wee~ So we had a little cake session while enjoying the evening view around Sultanahmet area.
It was a wrap up for our days in Turkey. And we were just ready to move to next destination. Strolling around the Blue Mosque in the morning was a bliss. It was not as hectic as in the other time whereby the pedestrians were very minimum at this hour. And definitely I took chance for selfie on the go. Ha ha~
