    Packing It In, in Cappadocia

    February 19, 2019 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    A full day of programming today. First up, a not too early hot air balloon ride at sunrise to see the Cappadocia landscape. We went with Voyager Balloons who first brought us to their office for a quick breakfast before dropping us off at the field where the balloons are set up. Unlike our experience in Myanmar, these balloons were almost ready to go when we arrived, which was really great as the weather was very nippy. I wore several layers and had 2 scarves as well as my tuque.

    A smooth takeoff and we were one of the first air borne. Drifting through valleys and over the whimsical landscape was indeed a pleasure and something I'd recommend to everyone. Do try to put the camera down though to simply enjoy. I think I alternated between my gopro and camera a little too much. Didn't take as many pictures as I normally would have but that was due to the gopro and not me just taking it in.
