In my eight months in Turkey, I have come to realize that for me there are certain places that seem to fit more than others.
While my time in South Korea was a valuable experience I always felt like a visitor. Turkey is different. That’s not to suggest that Turkey is my now permanent home. Rather, it’s to acknowledge the importance of looking for and, most importantly, recognizing when you’ve found a place that makes you happy. This feeling of contentment underlies the sense of adventure with which I am exploring Turkey. Weekend excursions to historic sites and trekking through the mountains help me to appreciate Turkey’s diversity.
Travel in Turkey is easy. For the equivalent of about $30 Canadian return, I travelled by bus to the Cappadocia Region of Turkey.
