We're not really fans of the iconic British 'doctor' but we'd sure like to borrow his tardis and zoom over to Cappa Docia sometime this evening. The sandstone wonderland, hidden in deepest, dustiest Turkey is quite possibly the most unique habitat on Earth and the only one that looks like sand whipped into crusty lemon meringue-esque towers. How fantastic...
Ok. We'll fess up. We didn't know this place existed until we saw a National Geographic at the optometrists today, but now we're obsessed. If anyone from the Turkish National Tourism board is reading...we're keen!!!
Here is the offical site, written in a thick Turkish English yet still somehow informative. Apparently there are a number of quality hotels built into the sandstone and the hot air balloon rides sound perfect.
