Travel Blogs from Goreme


A travel blog entry by hanush


I was expecting great things from Cappodoccia. This central Anatolian region gets mentioned in any conversation you have regarding your Turkish itinerary. You've either just been there, or you are on your way. A tourist Mecca if ever there was one.

And I have to say, despite all the hype and big expectations, it delivered. I arrived early …

Moving East

A travel blog entry by jonnystravels


So, after an extended stay, I pulled myself away from Olympos and headed back on the road. I was slightly dreading the bill, since you can just everything on a tab at the pension, but it was still a pretty cheap week. Staying still and not paying for touristy stuff definitely saves money, I'll need to work in more periodic stops like this for the …

Ballooning in Cappadocia

A travel blog entry by josh_bishop


Woke up at 5:15 with another lady staying at shoestring. Climbed into the balloon basket at the break of dawn and flew for an hour; majestically bobbing between fairy chimneys, rising 800m to watch the sunrise over the valley and finally perfectly gliding just above ground for touch down. Was an amazing experience completely worth the €110. …

Getting to know Goreme

A travel blog entry by josh_bishop

Checked in early and decided to visit the underground city. Flagged the 90 tl tour that had lunch and a few churches as well, spent 30 tl on dolmuses and entry instead.

    Dorm room was very clean and beds seperated into 3 sections within the cave. Everything in dorms was as expected and breakfast was really good with pastries and cereal to go with the usual Turk brekky. The main receptionist was a legend too; ringing round bus, ferry and dolmus companies helping me find my way to cypress. He let me print a bunch of forms that I needed too.

    Very nice, friendly staff and guests, they put on a BBQ that resulted in a lovely night with other guests. Cozy, though a bit chilly when I was there in December. Showers and loos are shared amongst all (I believe), but it's all worth the experience. They'll also help you organize any trips you might want.
