They say that taking a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia Turkey is a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ – which quite frankly I scoff at whenever anyone uses that term. But what made it really exciting and unique for me wasn’t the fact that we were floating over the strange and unique land formations of Cappadocia – it was that there were 54 other balloons also in the airspace above the land formations.

Talk about a rush hour.

But somehow the captain navigated the air space calmly and it allowed me to simply hang over the edge and take hundreds of pictures of this, colorful, silent work of art in the sky.

Price: 165 Euro or 380 Turkish Lyra for 1 hour
