Turkey, how I already miss you ...

oh wow, where can I start ? These last two weeks were amazing, we saw so many things and visited so many beautiful places I don't even know where to begin. We did the ballooning over Cappadocia, snorkelling in Gemiler Beach, tandem paragliding in Oludeniz, hiked in the Ihlara Valley, climbed up to see the Chimera in Olympos, among other unforgettable experiences. Turkey is indeed one of the most wonderful places I've been to and I'm certain this was only the first of many visits to follow ... It also helps that the food was delicious, and the people so friendly. We took a zillion photos, of which I'll share a fragment in Flickr and here when I have the time to sort through them. I also want to post a detailed report of this trip, not so much to bore you all (but you're forewarned that this will be more of a travel blog than a crafting blog during the next days), but for us, because I want to be able to remember it all someday and also to share some tips for those who are considering to visit Turkey in the future. Last year I sort of did that with the Croatia trip but somehow never finished it (Dubrovnik and Zagreb were left out) but this time I promise to do better.
Anyway, we're back and the cats were so excited to see us that we didn't get much sleep last night, especially with Maggie purring on our ears (she's grown so big in two weeks !). Thanks for all the comments + e-mails while we were away, I'll try to reply as soon as possible and come back soon with that trip report, but right now I just need to catch up on some sleep ...

Great that you love turkey! i saw your pics on Flickr and it gave me goosepimples: We've been living in Istanbul for 5 years and two of our children were born there. iI was the best time of our family-life and we love love the country and the food and the people. Istanbul is one of the most beautiful cities on earth i think. Glad to hear that you loved it, too. next time you go, please tell me and we'll give you insider tips!
