My Dream Vacation Destination is Cappadocia!
This is my entry to @nuoctuong's My Dream Vacation Destination is... Writing Contest - Over 20 SBDs Prize Pool.
I first came to know more about Cappadocia when I read @sweetsssj's post about Museum Hotel in Uçhisar, Cappadocia. I was enchanted by the beauty of (sweetsssj) the hotel and all the antiquities in it. It is stepping back and time. My jaw literally dropped when I saw those photos in her blog. The way she presented her blog have made me put Cappadocia on top of my bucket list.
It has a rich history that if I was there I could sense it within those walls and caves. Aside from antiques, there are arts and wonderful arts everywhere you set your eyes on. You can also taste traditional food served in the hotel. The view is exceptional and if I had the means to go to this place at the time I have read the post, I would have done so.
sweetsssj posted as much detail about the place accompanied by photos and videos which made me want to go and travel to that place. I suggest you visit the post of sweetsssj about Museum Hotel in Cappadocia and I assure you, you will be fascinated by that place. It is also notable that most of her travel posts are excellent and you can see just how much appreciation she has of the places she travels to.
Since we are talking about dream vacation destination, it is but normal that it must be a place that we have not been to yet because it is a place that we have only been desiring and wanting to go. Therefore, all photos are not mine.
Hot air balloon is a thing in Cappadocia. Just look how they add more colors to the landscape. Even without those balloons, just look at those rock formations. It just makes one go and explore them.
There are underground cities in Cappadocia totaling 36 cities. The deepest can be found at Derinkuyu up to a depth of 60 meters. The widest cit can be found in Kaymakli. These cities date back to hundreds of years ago.
Who wouldn't want to visit these so called fairy chimneys? Anytime of the year is just perfect to visit these structures.
I hope someday I can visit this magical and historical place.
