Istanbul Travel Guide

Istanbul 12

Hello Travelers,

How are you all doing? I’ve been having a really fun summer traveling and enjoying my time here in San Francisco. Finally, I had some free time to work on my travel posts. So, I had a chance to visit this mystical and beautiful city last year and I wanted to share my travel memories with you. The city which used to be known as Constantinople amazed me with it’s beautiful architecture and hospitable people. I stayed right in Taksim Square which is the center of the city. It was pretty convenient to get to any of the attractions from here via taxi’s. Continue reading

Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia 21

Hi All,

Hope you all had a great weekend. I went to Cappadocia with family last December it was something out of this world. I have never seen a place like this – cave hotels, beautiful rock formations, snow covered landscapes, cave hotels and so much more. I stayed at the amazing Gamirasu Cave Hotel and had so much fun there. You can read about it in my blog-post here.

I had a chance to collaborate with Euphrates Tours while visiting Cappadocia and had the most wonderful time there. They are very professional and took good care of me and my family. Our tour guide was really funny and witty and extremely knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend booking them if you plan on visiting Cappadocia. We were in the city for a day and they had the whole itinerary planned for us. Continue reading

Gamirasu Cave Hotel, Cappadocia, Turkey

Gamirasu 34

Hi There,

I visited Cappadocia (Turkey) with my family last December and I absolutely loved the city. You can read more about “Top things to do in Cappadocia” in my next blogpost. One of the top items in my list was to live in a Cave hotel. I got a chance to collaborate with and live in the Gamirasu Cave Hotel and it was one of the most enthralling and fun experiences of my life. Since I went there with my mom and we had both the king suite and the queen suite to ourselves. The rooms were the size of my house and has amazing facilities, the view was amazing and the hotel in general was very warm and welcoming. The staff at the reception and restaurant was really nice and kind. Overall, we had a wonderful time there and I am hoping to go back one day and spend more time enjoying the hotel itself.

The history of Ephesus, Turkey

Ephesus 22

Hello Travelers,

Happy New Year…!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful 2016 and have an even better 2017. I had a great year with a lot of fun travel adventures, brought a new house, got a promotion 🙂 and I hope the good luck continues onto the new year. I visited Turkey last December and Ephesus was my first stop. The city is about an hour’s drive from Izmir (you can fly from Istanbul to the Izmir airport). We stayed in Selçuk city which is near the ruins and has a number of hotels. Though it was really cold this time of the year in Turkey, the advantage of a visit now was that the sites were not as crowded and I could capture some beautiful shots of the sites. Continue reading
