More often than not, people spend all their time in Turkey mostly in Istanbul. Some may diverted their time to cities along the Mediterranean sea or the cave city of Cappadocia. But Turkey has much more to offer than that especially in the east!

After arriving in Istanbul, I was bombarded by the sight of throngs of tourists. The city itself is great and all but I just can't handle the crowds so my quest to get away from all the tourists began by starting off from Selcuk and traveled across the country through Pamukakle, Antalya, Fethiye, Faralya, Kabak, Goreme, Mt Nemrut, Van Trabzon and finally Kars where I crossed the border to Georgia (stay tuned for my next video about Georgia).

During my one month time, I had the opportunity to experience Ramadan with the Turkish people, went on my first break fast and got invited for tea by the locals where I almost got married (jokingly). I also paraglided in Pamukkale, camped in Faralya, swam along the Mediterranean coast (Butterfly Valley, Kabak and the secret Paradise Beach), Hiked all the Valleys in Cappadocia, climbed Mt Nemrut, met up with my friend I met in New Zealand in the Asian side of Istanbul, swam in Lake Van, see the Sumela Monastery, and walked across the plain of Ani. Turkey is definitely one of its kind and I encouraged you to go further east to see the real Turkey!
