We couldn’t have picked a better location for our first ever hot air balloon ride. We floated gracefully in the air over the most peculiar looking rocks and landscape with the sunrise providing a magnificent backdrop to our surroundings. Beautiful is an understatement. Magical is probably the closest word to describe the entire experience.
Cappadocia or Kapadokya in Turkish is incredibly unique and surreal in its natural beauty. One of Turkey’s best attractions, its biggest highlight is a hot air balloon ride before dawn to take in the vastness of this alien landscape. I think what made it even more special was that we were not alone up in the air. Numerous other hot air balloons dotted the sky, painting a dreamy picture.
