It’s pretty hard to travel around Turkey without seeing posters on every travel agency advertising trips to the Central Anatolian region of Cappadocia (Kah-pah-DOKE–ia) and no Turkey holiday would be complete without a visit. We decided to leave Turkey’s poster boy destination for the end of our trip through Turkey to spend ample time relaxing among the fantastic landscape after our foray along the Mediterranean coast. We reached Goreme, the main traveler town in the region at 6am after a 10 hour night bus from Antalya.
For our Turkey itinerary we decided to go to the coast before the interior because we wanted to chase summer and catch some beach time before it was too late in the season. Our journey from Istanbul to the Mediterranean started with an overnight bus. The 12 hour bus that took 16, brought us to Fetihye, where a waterfront area is surrounded by yachts, that you can stare at and imagine rich retirees that sail the Mediterranean through the summer and end their journey in Turkey.
