CAPPADOCIA TIMELAPSES: We camped in Cappadocia for 3 weeks in our van.


It’s was an amazing way to explore this park. We didn’t see many tourists apart from when the photo shoots would START AT 4:20AM NEXT TO OUR CAMPING SPOTS!! 😂😂😂 We’d crawl out of the van in our pajamas; eyes partially glued shut with crusties, drool stains and mismatched socks to see full-on wedding photos, proposals, and countless other photo shoots happening.

By 7am everyone was gone and the photographers (who had arrived at 3:30am to reserve their photo locations) would give us the breakfasts used in the pics. I guess that’s just for the gram 😛 but I have to say, it was yum.


Please remember Cappadocia is not all about the hot air balloons and beautiful balconies. Those balloons are there to look down at the LANDSCAPE. What surprised me the most was how deserted the park felt. So often we’d wonder where everyone was! Limited hikers, no one at the lookouts, no one exploring the cave homes.


Cappadocia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and considered an Open Air Museum. It consists of countless fairy chimneys, underground cities, crazy rock formations and green valleys. There is so, so, so much to see! Make sure to add it to your bucket list and explore it properly!
