Today We Are In: Cappadocia

At this point in our vacation we just arrived in Cappadocia yesterday, and we’re really excited about this part of the trip. Cappadocia is located almost smack-dab in the middle of Turkey, and the city dates all the way back to the 6th century. It’s known for it’s incredible network of underground cities. We’re hoping to spend a fair amount of time exploring them. Some are still fully functioning, and there are even some caves that have been converted into hotels.

Cappadocia is also known as a great place to go hot air ballooning. The hubby and I have been on a hot air balloon ride once before on our honeymoon, but certainly not over terrain like this.

Plus, there’s a little-known wine region in the surrounding area, and as the great wine appreciator, my husband is totally looking forward to tasting what will likely be wines unlike anything we get here in the states.

Because this is a much more remote area of the country, I’m expecting that we will be a bit more challenged to use our Turkish translation book and get some practice in this language far different than any of us will be familiar with. Hopefully we won’t offend anyone!

What would you most like to see in Cappadocia?
