Turkey!

Well I think that I am finally caught up on my jet lag.
I will be posting photos from my trip to Germany and Turkey within the next few days and try to catch you up on what I have been up to.

Turkey is an amazing place! The people there are some of the kindest, warmest, nicest, most welcoming people I think I have ever met. It is truly magical there. I will definitely be going back!

My friend Nicole and I had a wonderful trip. We arrived in Istanbul (photos to come soon) and then moved onto Cappadocia. This is truly a magical place! The following photos are from a hot air balloon trip that Nicole and I took.


I love this photo..... to me it kind of sums up my feelings that I feel for this country......

The formations here are just incredible. Some people still live in them.....


We went up to an elevation of 5,000 feet! It was so peaceful..... no wind and very quiet except when the pilot had to fire up the propane! There were at least 30 balloons that morning, just a beautiful site to see.

I hope you enjoy these photos .... I will post more of my trip in the days to come!
Have a great day!!

Wow! It looks fabulous! So tell me... when the pilot fired the propane, did you pull out a mandrel? ;-) Can't wait to see more pix!

Welcome back!
It looks fantastic, but now I think it was good to stay at home....I can´t drive in a hot air balloon :-)
Many greetings
Nicole

That heart shadow photo is a real winner! I had to come back to look at it again. Looks like a memorable trip for sure.
