Cappadocia by suzulu on 18 January 2014 8:44pm
Anne, I bought the latest Wanderlust magazine (February) and I thought of you as there is a good article on Cappadocia. I really want to go there.

It is a great place, Sue. It has changed a lot since we first went there in 1988 though! There were hardly any hotels then and I only remember a couple of shops. Now it has really been (in Anne-speak) Touristyfied though strangely it hasn't ruined it.

When we last went (Nov 2012) there were dozens of firms offering hot air balloon flights and I can fully recommend the experience (though it was very misty when we went up).

The fairy chimneys are unbelievable and the scenery is fabulous.

With our friends Veronica and Steve we are next in Turkey in June, but in November we are hoping to either fly from our base in Turkey to Northern Cyprus for a few days, or back to Cappadocia which we all enjoyed [last November we went to Gallipoli and Troy for a few days, we were supposed to go near the Syrian Border but decided to be safe rather than sorry! I somehow doubt it will be safe next November either unfortunately].

I hope you get to Cappadocia, Sue - I fully recommend it.

Ever since I saw it first on Michael's programme, I have wanted to visit it!

I was there last March and it was fascinating. You'll love it.

I am trying to talk Elaine into Istanbul. Cappadocia would be interesting.
