Cappadocia is one of those places you're unlikely to ever forget. The countryside is dotted with pinnacles (that look like castle turrets or giant mushrooms) that are soft on the inside, and have hard rock on the outside. They have been used as homes and churches through the centuries, and some are now becoming hotels. What makes it even more unforgettable is seeing it from a hot air balloon. They say that Cappadocia is one of the best places to take balloon tour as the air currents through the valleys allow the pilots, with plenty of skill, to skim along the contours of the countryside to the point where they come close enough to pluck an apple from a tree! The balloon tours are expensive, but it is one of those must-do experiences!
