My Trip In Turkey

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
― Lao Tzu

Hey Loves ♥

Have you ever experienced that heartbreaking sensation and queasy feeling you get when you are back home after a wonderful trip and the only thing you can think of is your next journey? Sharing some of the pictures I took and the recordings I made during my  three weeks stay in Turkey seems to be a good idea because I am back home again and already missing the beauty of the nature I have encountered and the tastiness of the food I have tasted. In this post, I will particularly focus on three locations.

 

The Cotton Castle – Pamukkale – Turkey

Two million people visit this place annually, making it one of the most visited attractions in Turkey. Pamukkale is a place situated in the province of Denizli. It is not only known for the picture perfect travertine formations that are filled with the water of the hot springs, but also for the noticeable well-preserved remainings of the ancient city “Hierapolis” (Holy City). This place has been made a Unesco World Heritage site and has been used as a spa center since the beginning of the second century. You can also bathe in the antique Roman pool that is filled with warm and mineral rich water!

 

The City of Roses – Isparta – Turkey

I have not stayed in this place, but decided to stop by and buy some rose scented beauty products and rose flavored Turkish delights since this location is known as the “City of Roses”. Right after entering the first shop that caught my attention because of the white and pink colored cosmetic products that were placed on the shelves, I was more than just happy with the decision I made to pay this city a visit. The overwhelming yet refreshing smell of roses was filling the room and a wave of reassurance came over me. Not only do I love rose scented and flavored products, I am also the definition of a package victim, which is why I spent a fortune in there. But, after all the products were produced in that city and therefore quite cheap when compared to the retailing prices in other countries or the one’s on Amazon. At the end of the day, I was feeling good and that is the most important aspect after all, isn’t it?

Afterwards, I drank a little cup of Turkish coffee at the Eğirdir lake and enjoyed the wonderful view. It amazes me how the lakes I visited in Turkey are extremely blue and even comparable to the sea. Unfortunately, I cannot even bathe in the lakes of the country I live in because the colors usually look quite greenish and the water does not seem to be as clear and clean and that scares me a lot. I am a hygiene-maniac and cannot even bathe in swimming pools because it is a proven fact that these are not  hygienic. It is definitely safer to go for the natural alternatives since mother nature offers us nothing but the best!

Such a cute place for a date, right? 😉

 

Yerköprü Waterfall

The third place I want to mention is a registered natural monument and literally a natural wonder. Hidden between mountains of the province Mersin, located at the small village Evren in the district Mut, is this little piece of heaven. However, you do not only need a car to reach this place, but also walk for a long time to actually get to the waterfall. It is a hard ride but in my opinion, definitely worth it! Make sure to watch the video I included at the begging of this post to see the full beauty of this place. By the way: Let me know what you think of that bridge one has to cross to reach the waterfall. Are you afraid of heights?

 

 

Finally, I would like to share more pictures of places I visited or passed by.

    I shouldn’t have scrolled down all the way! The photos of the desserts and delicacies made me crave one now! 😛 I’ve never visited Turkey even though I currently live in a neighbouring country. Perhaps I should …
