Cappadocia is a fantastically wonderful region in Turkey where my camera trigger finger got quite the workout. One can see everything ranging from eerie landscapes to Roman ruins, ancient churches to traditional weavings, and interesting people to cranky camels. This photo essay includes pictures I’d wanted to share but they didn’t require a full post of their own. But they do give you an idea of the variety of things you can expect to see when you visit this particular region of Turkey. Most of the photos are of things still on the main tourist trail but what I’d call “secondary” – things that unless you’re in Cappadocia more than two days (and apparently many visitors aren’t), you may not see these things. So hopefully this photo essay will encourage you to spend as much time as possible in this region! Enjoy!

    • doesn’t it? i’ll have to content myself with these otherworldly-type landscapes here since it doesn’t look like i’ll be able to go to actual other worlds any time soon 😉

  1. Just beautiful! Someday if the star align maybe I’ll make it to Cappadocia and see all these wonderful sights for myself!

    I need to hire some Romans to do my floor for me! And out of curiosity, how active is the volcano in your picture?

  2. Hi Kendra, lovely photos, I will have to add this to my list of places to travel to and explore. At this rate I will have to live to 150 year old! I love the way your blog is set up to show off so many photos, it really gives us who are following it a taste of the places you have visited.

    • Thanks!! And I do hope you get to go to Cappadocia – but I certainly hear you about having to live to 150 years old. Travel is pretty much the only reason why living forever sounds remotely appealing! 🙂
