Cappadocia has a unique vibe and a unique history. Thousands of intact cave dwellings throughout the town make this a location like no other in the world. When you add the daily sunrise hot air balloon show, you create a magical almost fairytale-like atmosphere that draws hoards of tourists to the town of Goreme every year.
What I didn’t expect was the volume of amazing trails and hikes through the valleys in Cappadocia. I thought I was in for a quiet week amidst the balloons. I ended up hiking my newly recovered hips off into each and every valley I could find. It wasn’t about the incline, it was about the scenery. I felt like we were walking through natural museums on every trail.
Like I said in last weeks blog post, I hadn’t shot for almost two months but Cappadocia got me back into the swing of things and I had a great time shooting all of the trails, sunrise balloons, and castles in the region. These are my favorite photos from my eight days in Cappadocia. (Some of the photos of me were taken by @genuinetravel & @khoubai)
