Ballooning over the Cappadocia’s – a video
This is a video of ballooning over the ethereal Cappadocia’s when we were in Turkey.
Cappadocia is located in Central Anatolia, in Turkey.
This entire area is replete with geological phenomena; in particular the fairy chimneys and the unique and very Escher like formations.
The local village of Goreme is where people live in caves as troglodytes and is the starting point to see this ethereal landscape by hot air balloon.
We were very fortunate to be able to stay in the village in a cave house as well as Gordon taking these stunning photos from the hot air balloon. I ran along the fields and through the fairy chimneys following his balloon as best as I could.
If you get the opportunity, visit this entire region, as it is one of the friendliest and culturally enriching places that we have visited.
I have written a guest post about our experiences on Theplanetd.com site entitled
