far, far away

Dress: Isabel Marant, last seen here (similar style here); Boots: Isabel Marant; Sunglasses: Target; Watch: Daniel Wellington; Bracelet: Gorjana

What I loved, and probably what fascinated me most about our trip, were the moments that left us feeling worlds away from home. When we landed in Cappadocia, I knew we'd be in for exactly that. Cappadocia is smack dab in the middle of Turkey and drastically different from Istanbul -- where Istanbul is a sprawling, bustling and loud city, almost bursting at the seams with activity, Cappadocia is much more remote with an austere, surreal beauty to it. The valley is sprinkled with volcanic peaks, a lot of which were originally homes, town centers and temples years ago -- you can even spot an occasional window or doorway while hiking around. It's as if you're wandering through an expansive ghost town of cave dwellings. 

Heather and I decided to trek out on our own for an afternoon hike and ultimately ended up battling a steep climb at the end. With me in ankle boots and her in sandal slides no less, we were certainly happy to see the view once we got up top. Absolutely breathtaking and oh, so worth it. 

More to come on Cappadocia (and the rest of our trip) next week in my three-part Turkey travel series. Stay tuned!
