Last minute, and right before we purchased tickets to La Paz, Bolivia, my obsession with a Turkey honeymoon returned--in full force. Thoughts of strolling through Istanbul, of wasting hours at a cafe, of rummaging through bazaars began to crowd out thoughts of the Uyuni Desert and Bolivian mountains. It took some convincing, but Ethan agreed. We booked tickets for July.
For once, we are going to take it slow on this trip. And despite our tendencies, what we are not going to do are crazy marathon train rides, rushed itineraries, and border crossings (which unfortunately crosses out a trip to Sofia, Bulgaria or, for that matter, my daydreams about finally visiting Georgia). Instead, we'll visit only two places on this trip: Istanbul and another yet-to-be-determined locale.
Cappadocia, in Central Turkey, is a contender. It looks incredible. We would stay in a cave hotel!
Another contender is the Black Sea region, in northeastern Turkey, close to Georgia and Armenia.
