Where in the World are the Bollins travel blog

We start our journey into the valley.

There are small churches (caves) with various mosaics throughout the valley.

More dwellings along the way.

Annika is kind enough to give daddy a break.

These cows didn't mind us passing thru

Hey, look, some sheep!

Uuuhh...dad...there getting closer.

Holy shit! Feet don't fail me now!

Phew....That was close!

Leaving the Ihlara Valley.

Before we arrived at our Cappadocia destination, we decided to take a little detour and visit the Ihlara Valley. We hiked the 20km (most with Annika in a backpack) in a day and it was one of the highlights of our entire trip. The landscape was amazing, but more interesting was walking through the active farms and herders along the way. For the day, it was like being transferred back in time a couple thousand years.
