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!

The land of Cappadocia is made up of pumice stone, soft enough for carving, and inhabitants, old and new, have gone at it. Our hotel is a more modern version, complete with plumbing and wifi, but a cave just the same. Rock walls, little light, a bed nook was cut into the wall. Then my first call to prayer went off as the sun ...
... was ok, but as soon as the guy sat us down, the service wasn't that great anymore, as he was too busy out the front trying to get more customers! We had a laugh with him about it, although I don't think he knew exactly why we were laughing! We also tried a Turkish dessert we'd been recommended called Künefe, which was really strange. It was like a baked cheese that was coated in a sweet wheat and sugar mixture that almost tasted like coconut. It was ...
... of whirling as a form of dhikr (remembrance of God). Dervish is a common term for an initiate of the Sufi path; the whirling is part of the formal Sama ceremony. So the experience was quite a somber affair and the watchers were very careful not to make a sound or take photos as this could disrupt the performance. Afterwards however we were given a chance to take some photos as they whirled about in such a unique fashion. We were both quite mesmerised by the ...
... the town and the beautiful rock formations. It was surprising to learn that people still live inside the rocks and caves. We saw camels too. But it was a super hot day, so by about 4pm I decided I desperately needed a nap so I went back to the hostel. Then I met the people in my dorm - two IT workers on holiday from Tunisia. Really lovely and friendly. And we went out to dinner together. I had kofta, a traditional Turkish meal. It was meat too. Mardi 27 août 2013: Up at ...
... thinking i shouted out "Turkey" and walked off. I had a laugh about that later. We got our tickets to Marmaris for a connecting ferry to Rhodes and then Santorini.
The Cappadocia region was formed from an ancient volcanic blast and the resulting basalt rock. In around 500bc people began carving houses and churches into the rocks. This served as good shelter from the elements as well as providing cover from invading army's.
