Şirince, Şirince Mahallesi, 35920 Selçuk/İzmir, Turkey
Sirince is a small village, a short drive from the ruins of Ephesus. Overlooking Sirince is a lovely guest house called The Terrace Houses. It's run by a wonderful Turkish/English family. The weekend we stayed the youngest daughter was ably in...

Bilal Eroğlu Caddesi, Mezar Sokak No:8, 50180 Göreme/Nevşehir Merkez/Nevşehir, Turkey
This image reminds me of huddling in a basket with a bunch of strangers/new friends and a fear-of-heights partner. The early morning quiet broken by the blasts of flames. Chest tight, palms a little moist (wishing I had a strap on my camera) and...

Esbelli Sokak No.36, Esbelli Mahallesi, URGUP, 50400 Ürgüp/Nevşehir, Turkey
On our second day in Cappadocia, we rented a car and drove to some of the less frequented sites. It was late afternoon by the time we returned to Serinn House (a great boutique hotel). Since the car wasn't being returned until the morning, the...

Bilal Eroğlu Caddesi, Mezar Sokak No:8, 50180 Göreme/Nevşehir Merkez/Nevşehir, Turkey
Not only is the landscape of Cappadocia an amazing sight, so are the numerous hot-air balloons speckled across the horizon. Top of the world.

Bilal Eroğlu Caddesi, Mezar Sokak No:8, 50180 Göreme/Nevşehir Merkez/Nevşehir, Turkey
A sunrise hot-air balloon ride in Cappadocia is a must. I think that's Mount Taurus in the distance.

The Spice Market in the Sultanahmet should not be missed! The scents and colors astound. It's by the harbor and convenient to ferries on the Bosphorus.

Çengelköy Mh., Çengelköy Mahallesi, Kuleli Cd No:43, 34684 Üsküdar/İstanbul, Turkey
If you're looking for a contemporary, upscale hotel on the quieter Asian side of Istanbul (after fully exploring the European side and the old town), try the Sumahan on the Water. As you can see from this picture of our hotel room, the hotel's...

Vişnezade Mahallesi, Acısu Sokaği No:19, 34357 Beşiktaş/İstanbul, Turkey
We exited our (waterside) hotel in Istanbul one evening to go to dinner and were greeted by a cool nighttime light show on the Bosphorus Bridge (which spans the Bosphorus Strait and connects the European and Asian sides of the city), along with...

Şirince, Şirince Mahallesi, 35920 Selçuk/İzmir, Turkey
If you're planning an overnight visit to Ephesus, instead of staying in Selcuk, stay in the more authentic hillside village of Sirince a little further from the ruins. This is the view from The Terrace Houses, a group of four rustic furnished...

Ürgüp, Nevşehir, Turkey
One of the most amazing travel experiences I've ever had; ballooning over the gorgeous landscapes of Cappadocia at dawn. This was taken from our balloon. So relaxing, so quiet, and breathtakingly beautiful.
