It's a surreal start to the vacation as you land in Cappadocia. Strange chimney like geological formations extend across the valleys; entrances to caves and troglodyte dwellings can be spotted all around, and there's a feeling of incredulity as you say hello to your boutique cave hotel. Your international flight will have landed in Istanbul. Then it's a short transfer and domestic flight to Kayseri, where your driver and guide are waiting to transfer you into the fairytale landscape. The rest of the day is free, giving you a chance to relax and gaze out at the Cappadocia geology. Dependent on your energy levels, it's possible to arrange a visit to Mustafapasa Town, where old Greek houses stand resplendent in the late afternoon light. Tonight's dinner is included and will involve a traditional Turkish banquet at a local restaurant. Think meze, dolma, and a blend of fresh Mediterranean flavors.
