One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cappadocia!

The land of beautiful horses but especially its natural landscape..

Nimrod Mountain !

In SE Turkey, it is the site of the mausoleum of Antiochus I (c.69-c.34 B.C.), king of ancient Commagene. The complex, which includes a 500-ft- (152-m-) wide and 164-ft- (50-m-) tall pyramidal tomb, gigantic (c.30 ft/9 m) stone busts of the kingdom's gods and rulers, and a wall with magnificent carved reliefs, is one of the most impressive monuments of Hellenistic civilization. The gods depicted, worshipped by Antiochus and his people, represent an unusual merging of Western (Greek) and Eastern (Persian) cultures, reflected in such divine names as Zeus-Oromasdes and Apollo-Mithras.

Istanbul is probably more expensive than you might think, so be aware of this. I mention avoid taxi as much as you can, at least when you have a vague idea of where your destination is located.

Sometimes reaching a host's place is as costly as a bunk bed in a downtown hostel, so, consider this (in)convenience at your own risk..

Ask people anything, they will try to help you.

TOPKAPI PALACE and HAGIA SOPHIA are museums with around 25 TL entrance fee each. It sounds much I know, so consider twice / read about these sights before you decide to go. YET, their courtards / outdoors are open and free, maybe only to make you more curious about inside.

I find GRAND BAZAAR unnecessarily big and expensive (UNLESS you can bargain - which I cant, out of shyness), never bought a button from there, but I LIKE THE COLOURS INSIDE.

I will not exchange a plate of beans and rice right next to awesome SULEYMANIYE Mosque and the view from its courtyard downhill for anything...
