Turkey, the country of numerous impressions.
After an exciting trip, we are now in Cappadocia and review the trip with a view of billion-year-old stone formations. But let's start from the beginning.
There is hustle and bustle as far as the eye can see, an incredible number of people in narrow streets and every district has an unmistakable atmosphere. This is Istanbul.
The aim of our trip was to get to know as much of the country and its people as possible. That's why we largely avoided commercial accommodation and slept
on the sofas of the locals. The hospitality, warmth and passion of the people we met will remain in our memories forever.
This type of travel allowed us to gain insight into the diversity of living conditions in such a large city.
After this intense time, we had the opportunity to relax in Izmır. After the first breather, we realized that the new city has a completely different character
than Istanbul. Here we realized how diverse Turkey is and that Istanbul is a lot, but not a complete picture of the entire country.
Izmır is a very young and free city in which many prejudices about Turkey are being dispelled. From beautiful nearby beaches in Çeşme via small alleys
and exceptional bars and restaurants, Izmır had everything to offer that promotes peace of mind.
After we found our relaxation in Izmır, our journey continued to Antalya. Thanks to the friendships we made in Istanbul, we also had a direct opportunity in Antalya
to stay overnight and establish contacts with people of the same age. On the first evening we met a few people who also made our time in Antalya an unforgettable experience.
We immediately felt comfortable and at home and have rarely laughed so much. The openness and lightheartedness of the people moved us and filled us with a lot of joy.
We also really liked Antalya's nightlife. The farewell to this city was one of the hardest, but certainly not a farewell forever.
After all these experiences our path led us to the Nar Cave House in Cappadocia - our first and only hotel stay of this trip.
Cappadocia is also called the heart of Turkey. For us the best opportunity to relax and end the trip. This is possible with a private pool in the room as well as one
exclusive massage is best.
A horseback riding tour at sunset through the distinctive landscape of Cappadocia as well as a day tour through the many historical stone sites offered us a new insight into the Turkish landscape
Culture that we have never experienced before.
In particular, the panorama of hundreds of hot air balloons rising into the sky with the sun took our breath away. There couldn't have been a better end to this trip for us.
