Hot Air Ballooning in Cappadocia

It was worth waking up at 5.30! Still dark outside, with everybody still sleeping inside their houses or caves. Along with some other hotel guests, we were driven down a dirt track road to the departure place. Half a dozen half inflated balloons were awaiting for us.

Everybody was holding their breath, ready to jump into the basket when given the signal.

Then WOW! What a sensation to see all these rock formations from above! In such a quiet atmosphere you only interrupted from the click of cameras.

We saw Goreme from above and Uçhisar, perched on top of a hill, at the same level. Simply amazing!

After such a fantastic experience, breakfast provided by the Museum Hotel was waiting for us, full of the delights of the Turkish delicatessen. Yum!
