SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – TURKEY

In trying to decide on today’s spot I encountered some difficulty. Not because I did not know which country to choose but which area of it to opt for! Turkey offers so much – it is permeated with history and culture yet maintains a modern flair with eco-tourism, adventure travel and pure beauty in a Mediterrean climate. I have yet to meet someone who has been to Turkey and has not liked it. I can’t wait to visit!!

Cappadocia

The Cappadocia region, found in central Turkey, is home to much history and natural volcanic rock vistas. Ancient “fairy chimneys” populate the view around Goreme. Due to the soft nature of these “chimneys”, the locals created carved homes, churches, temples and other structures into them.
