A Travellerspoint blog

We just found the "Most Bizarre Place on the Planet"

sunny 38 °C

And it is called Cappadocia!! We arrived early yesterday morning and have managed to get in two big hikes covering at least 20 kilometers. The history and geography are equally amazing, tomorrow we take the guided tour so for now we are just wandering wherever the trails take us. The pictures don't do any justice to the ancient architecture of cave dwellings and churches that have been carved into the crazy landscape that erosion and time have created.
We are staying in the town of Goreme which is carved into a similar landscape making for an interesting mix between the old and the new. Our hotel is made up of part caves and part new construction and is just amazing. We are basically living in a very comfortable cave....with wifi, a killer restaurant and a spectacular view.
We have too many pictures so check our www.flickr.com/whereintheworldarecolinandnat as we will keep adding more to that as well. Time to run for dinner, the local speciality is a clay pot kebab, we'll get pictures!
