This month, I’ll be writing about four amazing outdoor adventures we’ve enjoyed on our trips. One of my favourite aspects of traveling is seeing the natural beauty in many places around the world, and Cappadocia was one such highlight.
Cappadocia is a region in central Turkey that possesses a landscape that could have come straight from the moon. These freestanding rocks have been eroded by centuries of flowing rivers and flood waters to resemble rocky spires. Could it be that they really are the fairy chimneys that they’re known as?
It’s easy to imagine that King Oberon and Queen Titania of A Midsummer Night’s Dream dwelt in a palace as regal and unusual as one of these. Living here really might make a fairy king perform magic that would make his queen fall in love with a donkey.
These photos were all taken the day we flew into Cappadocia from Istanbul, and if it wasn’t quite like visiting Fairyland, it really was a mysterious and unrecognizable landscape. We felt as if we’d been transported to another realm where, after you’ve left, you wonder if it really was a dream after all.
