'Memory is the fourth dimension to any landscape.'
- Janet Finch
This statement sums up the days one spends in CAPPADOCIA perfectly. Once you have been to this amazing place, you can never get it out of your head and the memory lasts with you for a long long time to come.
I visited Cappadocia this year in the month of July and got to experience something which is just not easy to describe in words. I never thought i would get such an overwhelming feeling by looking at a place which has such rugged landscapes. Like the title states, it really looks like you have stepped out of the lunar lander. It has absolutely no resemblance to any other place on this planet and once there you feel like you just dont want to go back. Before visiting Cappadocia we had a brief idea of what to expect, but the magnitude of its beauty only becomes clear once you see it with your own eyes. No amount of words or pictures can do justice to the overwhelming feeling of being there in person.
Cappadocia was the second city i visited on my trip to Turkey. The best way to reach there from Istanbul is to fly to either Kayseri or Nevsehir and the tickets are also pretty affordable. We had hired a self drive car with pickup from the airport so travelling and exploring the places becomes a cakewalk. The roads from Kayseri to Cappadocia are in amazing shape as are in all of Turkey and the views on the way are well spectacular to say the least. The landscape changes very quickly from plains to hills and then to the so called Lunar landscape.
