May 21 Türkiye! (Day 237)

As we slept overnight the flight path diverted slightly to avoid the conflict in the Middle east, jogging north then west to avoid Iranian airspace.

As the sun rose we descended into Istabul!

After a short layover we caught our next flight to Kayseri, about in the middle of Türkiye, and the airport servicing the Cappadocia region. We picked up a rental car and Robert adjusted his brain to driving on the right side of the road!

Through the car window we caught sight of a huge snow capped mountain! Mount Erciyes.

Our destination is Göreme, pronounced “gore-eh-May’, the epicentre of Cappadocia, known for it’s eroded rock formations, fairy chimneys, and cave houses carved into the stone!

Our Airbnb, Luwian Stone House.
