Trip Log

Notes Actions
Last night, Brent from down the street told us that they launch all the balloons at dawn each morning. Dawn being approximately 5:30AM. So, Brent and I got up this morning at approximately 5:30AM and watched. It was amazing. There were well over 100 balloons. Certainly at least 120 of them. It was amazing to see them all inflate, get really up-close looks at some, and watch them troop, single-file, into Rose Red Valley outside of Goreme. What a way to start the day!
Brent and I find that, as long as we have time, doing a tour to get oriented in a place is often really helpful. We decided to do the Cappadocia "Green Tour" today to that end, and we'll probably do the "Red Tour" while we're here as well. It was a great deal... approx. $110CAD/ea for the whole tour, including lunch and admission to all the points of interest. Wow!
