Antalya – Situated on the coast, provides one of the most breathtaking views – the turquoise waters with mountains in the background.

Beautiful coast with lots to see and do. We went to the Mosaics (again students are free) and wandered around Paphos (AKA Pafos). We didn't do a boat tour but there are regular tours everyday from a lot of boats. Got a free Segway ride for a couple minutes.

We were flying over the rippled valleys of Cappadocia which we planned to visit later on the same day. We saw Rose valley, Pigeon valley, Open Air Goreme Museum, etc.; all from a bird’s eye view. A pilot can only guide the balloon vertically, as the horizontal path is clearly directed by the wind around. Dennis was professional and fluent in English and was properly describing about the sights we were flying over. He had years of experience in flying the balloon and we felt absolutely safe while flying with him.

Selcuk – A quaint little town which houses the Ephesus, the Temple of Artemis (one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world) and the house of Virgin Mary (it is believed that Mother Mary spent her last few days here when St John brought her to Turkey after the death of Jesus). It’s also just a few hours away from Pammukale (the cotton castle with the hot springs and travertine) and few minutes away from Kusadasi which is one of the biggest ports in Turkey where most of the cruise ships halt.
