Friday Photo #33, Cappadocia

One of the main attractions in the Cappadocia region of Turkey is the sunrise balloon flight, seen here over the countryside surrounding the village of Goreme. Most of the providers congregate their balloons in a field on the edge of town. I heartily recommend Lars Erik More’s Kapadokya Balloons. They do their tours on their own for a much less mass-produced experience.

Not that the only way to enjoy Cappadocia is from a balloon. Just walking around, there are remarkable views wherever you look.

And you can stay in a hotel in a cave. Here’s a room we stayed in. Pretty darned nice. All in all, Cappadocia is far more unique than a Turkish beach vacation, and it’s just a short domestic flight from Istanbul or Ankara.

There are 382 more photos from Turkey, including many more from Cappadocia, in the Turkey Gallery at EarthPhotos.com. See all the Friday Photos.

And have a good weekend!
