Bilal Eroğlu Caddesi, Mezar Sokak No:8, 50180 Göreme/Nevşehir Merkez/Nevşehir, Turkey
If you only get to ride in a hot air balloon once in your life, do it over Cappadocia, Turkey. Amazing. Cappadocia is surreal when seen from any angle. The region is peppered with strange pointy stone spires that rise up toward the sky, in pastel...

Kalkan Mahallesi, İskele Sk., 07960 Kaş/Antalya, Turkey
Stylish, secluded Likya Gardens is a hideaway amid the cliffs of Kalkan, a humble old fishing town on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. Each of the seven suites has its own pool and a patio set on stilts, offering views of a crystal-blue bay and brightly...

Aydinli Mah., Yavuz Sok. No:1, 50180 Göreme Belediyesi/Nevşehir Merkez/Nevşehir, Turkey
When you travel to the Cappadocia region of Turkey you have to stay in a cave hotel. Sleeping in a room carved out of the area’s ‘fairy chimney’ rock formations is inherently cool. When you realize that your room is also literally cool—even in the...

Konya, Turkey
Spiritual and sensual, ascetic and ecstatic, Rumi’s poetry has provided me an island of tranquility since my college years. Two of his quatrains, in particular, had a profound influence on my development as a young adult: For years, copying other...

Rumi was born in Afghanistan, spent time in Persia (Iran), then settled in Konya, Turkey when his father was invited there to be a scholar. Rumi became an Islamic scholar himself teaching peace, love, and tolerance. He built quite a following of...

Aziziye Mahallesi, Cengaver Sk. No:12, 42325 Karatay/Konya, Turkey
Konya is a “dry” town and Turkey’s most religious city. While back in Rumi’s day (and in his poetry), one could be a devout Muslim and still drink alcohol, that’s not the case in many parts of the Islamic world today (although most Konya hotels do...

Konya, Turkey
I stumbled across a jewel in the conservative town of Konya, Ikonium. Sylvia from Argentina, has been running the workshop and store for the past 18 years. The ladies make scarves, hats, pendants, dresses, nearly everything that can be worn on the...

Sille Parsana Mh., Şht. Bilal İpek Sk., 42250 Selçuklu/Konya, Turkey
Alcohol isn't easy to come by in Konya and when I drank it I felt like the devil. So I managed to develop a taste for ayran, a salty yogurt drink that is quite possibly the most popular libation throughout Turkey. When served in a metal cup, it...

Sille Parsana Mh., Şht. Bilal İpek Sk., 42250 Selçuklu/Konya, Turkey
Beyti is kebap (most likely lamb) wrapped in lavash (a thin tortilla) then crisped on the outside and splashed with parsley, red pepper and crushed pistachios. Dip it in creamy yogurt and you'll have a true taste of scrumptious Turkish cuisine. I...

Sille Subaşı, Sille Mahallesi, 42132 Selçuklu/Konya, Turkey
Salep is a beautiful milky drink made from orchid tubers. It's served super hot and sprinkled with cinnamon from posh restaurants to street vendors throughout Turkey. When Salep is on the menu, it's a sure sign winter is arriving. Be careful not...
