I was giving iMovie in iPad a shot so I decided to put this together to remind me of my Hot Air Balloon Memories that should never be forgotten! :) Enjoy! =)
Cappadocia is known for rick rock formations and the underground cities built in the past to protect them from war. Christians hid underground for a while until Christianity became officially accepted. We did a bit of climbing which was exhausting but fun! Cappadocia remains a tourist attraction until today because of its rich unique geological, historic, and cultural features.
Ephesus is the Home and the city of the Blessed Virgin Mary after Jesus Christ died. Checkout the gorgeous ruins that can definitely leave one in awe!
Living the Dream. Life's checklist to ride my first and probably last hot air balloon... CHECK! :) Early early morning in the beautiful Flintstone's aged city of Cappadocia! :D We had to wake up at 4 am! But we all found it such an experience to be up there with such breath-taking unique view of rock formations! We were up in the sky for 60 minutes. We stood the whole time inside the basket. The temperature was close to zero. We were loads of feet above the ground. While on air, 60 other balloons joined us up there. Our ride ended up toasting to champagne and getting certified. King, Kay, and I plus our tourmates had such a wonderful time!
We touched down Troy in Canakkale, Turkey. Studied all these back in college under Sir Dave's class. It's just amazing to see all the remains and evidences right before me! We even watched Troy while on the bus to relive all the greek-trojan battles as they fought for Helen. There was a wooden horse that was recreated on site -- the so called gift given by the Greeks which caused firing up the entire city of Troy.
