We went on a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia, Turkey. We stayed in the town of Goreme and booked our activity with Butterfly Balloon. It was an amazing experience as the landscape was truly unique and out of this world. Mostly because of the unique rock formations called fairy chimneys. Whats amazing was that early christians have fled persecutions from the Roman soldiers and settled in Cappadocia. They carved churches and homes out of the rocks and you can see the remains of this.
We had to wake up early as the flight started around 6am. We were picked up from our hotel. Had a light breakfast and was taken to our take off location. The location changes as it depends on the wind direction. It was truly an amazing experience and the staff of Butterfly Balloon professional.
