Fairy Chimneys & Turquoise waters – Turkey leg 2

May 28th, 2012 3 comments

Our stop in Cappadocia, specifically Goreme was just what we expected; amazing geography and history but highly exploited by tourism. It did lend itself for some fantastic hikes and pictures. Kaymakli, an ancient underground city 8 stories deep was definitely a highlight. We avoided the tours, just boarded the local bus and hired a local guide who made the tour of this city very interesting.

Continuing our journey south and after an overnight bus we found ourselves in the Turquoise Mediterranean coast which felt amazing after such a long road trip. We headed to the port of Kaş, and before boarding our gullet (a wooden sailboat), strolled the streets of this quaint little fishing town which we totally fell in love with. The gullet crew had lunch ready for us and before sunset we set sail, starting a 3 day cruise along the western Mediterranean coast which turned out to be a fantastic trip. Our daily activities included exploring bays and islands, reading, swimming and enjoying great food prepared by the gullet crew. We disembarked in the port of Fethiye where we visited a carpet merchant that came highly recommended before heading back to Istanbul.
