It’s been almost one year since we returned from Turkey and I’m still missing it.
I felt something amazing during our time in Istanbul, and I fell in love with the whimsical atmosphere amongst the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia. I hope I am able to return soon, but until then, I’ll just obsess over photographs and memories and cry in my black tea, which I drink from Turkish tulip glasses.
This camel tableau (I couldn’t have posed them better myself – honestly) was what greeted us as we arrived at the Göreme Open Air Museum. The museum is only a short walk from the center of town and offers up-close views of the Love Valley as well as a glimpse into Cappadocia’s ancient Christian heritage. Entrance to the museum is about $7 and is a must see when visiting Cappadocia.

My favorite part of Cappaddocia was the used bookstore in Goreme. It was a backpacker sort of place, so it had lots of used books in all sorts of languages. But the best part was that it had separate sections for “literature” and “fiction.” As an English major, I thoroughly enjoyed them organizing their selection by quality. Me and my pretentiousness were very happy that day.

Wow I wish I had seen that bookstore! Sounds like a great find
