Things I wish I knew before visiting Cappadocia 🎈🎈: 1️⃣The hot air balloons don’t fly everyday. They are completely weather dependent. On the same note, they do fly year-round, and there isn’t a “hot air balloon festival/season”.
2️⃣Cappadocia is the name of the region, and there are many towns within the area from which the hot air balloons take off. Göreme and Uchisar are two of the most popular and picturesque towns.
3️⃣Stay in a cave hotel! The landscape of the Cappadocia region is made of a soft natural rock called tuff. Homes, restaurants, hotels, and more have been carved into the sides of the rocks. It’s definitely worth it to stay in one!
4️⃣ Stay at least four nights- 2 nights in one hotel and 2 nights in another. This will maximize your chances of seeing hot air balloons fly, riding in one, and enough time to explore the fairy chimneys, love valley, red valley, and other landmarks.
5️⃣ Many of the Cappadocia photos you see on Instagram are photoshopped with many more balloons than there are in real life (this photo has not been photoshopped! 😊). So don’t expect hot air balloons to be swooping right over your head. That *does* occasionally happen, but it’s very rare. Only about 100 balloons fly each day.
6️⃣ Oh, and it’s pronounced KAPPA-DOH-KIA, not Kappa-doh-see-ah.
Is this place on your bucket list? If not... what are your waiting for?!
What do I mean? You could be using ➡️PROFITSHARING⬅️ dish soap from our Online Shopping Club AND be getting paid month after month when people you refer to the club use profitsharing dish soap to do their dishes. Make sense?

(One of a kind) I’m so into the idea that everyone you meet is in your life for a purpose & that each person out there has something to bring to the table that only they can (with that being said I want to do my best to treat everyone I meet as the one of a kind human that they are) I’m happy that you’re here reading this caption, being the wonderful treasure that you are, & making this world brighter with each breath you take
