Following our Heart to Heart (Continuing through Turkey)

We left Mediterranean Izmir for the continental climate of Konya and the Cappadocia region of Turkey. We are overwhelmed by the experience. We have taken so many pictures at each turn, it is hard to decide among them. Unfortunately, some moments of this journey passed without a proper picture.  I only hope that you can feel our wonder.

So many kindnesses by so many people.  The minibus driver using his cellphone to contact the hotel to be sure he dropped us off at the best spot.  This occurred at night after riding nine hours. Another time, the bus conductor alerted the driver to stop the bus so he could run back to return the purse that a passenger forgot.

So much jaw-dropping natural beauty.  Again, my iPad and my technique does not do it justice.  The splashes that I post here are just a mirage of the experience.

Such interesting hotel experiences reflecting the Turkish spirit. The Hich Hotel (hiç in Turkish corresponds to never and whatsoever) raises the concept of service to a different level. Oriental Cave Suites with their personal touch helps all travelers that come to their door.
