Few years ago, I came across pictures of the hot air balloons in Cappadocia, Turkey and paragliding pictures at Ölüdeniz, Turkey. And I immediately added these two experiences on my bucket list of things to do/places to visit.
And two weeks ago, during my 8 nights, 9 days trip to Turkey, I was able to complete both of those experiences!
I’ve been to lots of places in Europe, but this trip to Turkey was so unreal. It felt like a dream and I am definitely feeling post vacation blues as a result.
I know am still behind on my Spain & Portugal trip blog posts, but I will share some of the Turkey travel photos from my instagram for now and share my itinerary as well as travel tips about Turkey later.
