We woke up bright and early (4:50am) for our hot air balloon ride! The whole process was incredibly effortless. We were picked up, ushered into the large offices of Butterfly Balloons, served breakfast, and taken to the outskirts of town where we saw the balloons blown up with huge flames right before our eyes.
We popped into the big …

On Thursday, we arrived in Nevsehir before transferring to a large shuttle bus (servis) which would take us on the 30 minute ride to Goreme. All-in-all, we had spent the past 24 or so hours sitting - either on a plane, subway train, or bus and were now ready to enjoy our honeymoon in earnest. At Goreme, we made …
Today was a much slower and easier day. Of course we both woke up for the 4:30 call for prayer but fortunately after the customary disturbance we tried to resume our sleep - but with limited success. Breakfast this morning was a very pleasant affair, probably because we weren't rushed. Not only did we have the plate of olives, salami, cheeses etc, …

We had a fantastic stay at Vineyard Cave Hotel. Accommodations were spacious, nicely decorated, and clean. The location is convenient as well, just a short walk from the center of Goreme. The tasty/filling breakfast served on the terrace is the best we've had as well. But what really sets Vineyard apart is the immense hospitality shown by the Uludag family who run the hotel (namely Hasan and his son, Osman). They were warm, knowledgable, and incredibly helpful. From offering us rides to helping us book local tours, they made our stay in Goreme that much better. (Plus Hasan cooks up a great omelette!). We highly recommend Vineyard!
