Due to the way my cheap flights to and from Japanw worked, I ended up with a few days to spare in Turkey before heading towards the US.
I decided upon hearing about the natural beauty and historic significance of Cappadocia, at the centre of the country, to go and check it out.
It was beautiful, see for yourself…
The road to Göreme
On a sunny Saturday afternoon I walked the 10km or so from my hotel to Göreme, which is the town at the centre of Cappadocia.
I stayed in Avanos, a riverside town known for it's pottery.
