The Granddaddy Of Ruins And One Of The Seven Ancient Wonders Of The World

An Underground City And A Hometown-reminding Hike
The next day, we took a trip to see the Underground City. Housing underground proved to be much cooler than the temperature outside, which we welcomed as it was just too hot. The temperature nicely st... more

Shroomed and Smurfed
Cappadocia, which is pretty much in the center of Turkey, is not just one city like I previously thought. It’s a collection of towns with quirky landscapes. Landed in the town of Goreme from a... more

Istanbul, Constantinople
The next morning, started off on a full day of exploring Istanbul. The city surrounds what looks like two bodies of water – the Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorous Strait. Many sections of the t... more
