Bucket List: Hot Air-Ballooning in Cappadocia

There’s no sight like watching the world shrink as you shuttle up higher and higher, up above the city. One of the best activities to enjoy this experience is Hot Air Ballooning. While there are many places in the world that make great sights for a balloon ride, my favorite has to be Cappadocia in Turkey.


‘Cuz this isn’t just about vast greens or sunrise to admire, the Fairy Chimneys in Cappadocia make this the most breathtaking experience ever!

I live in the movies (in my parallel world). I travel in search of stories. So I explore- experience- express my trysts with people, places, food, culture and their stories!
