Where I stayed
This morning we drove to this big valley and walked right through it, it was full of these caves in the rock that little people lived in (we decided that it must have been little people as the ceilings were so low...ha ha) Also me and Sam thought that there has never been a cartoon or some kids program about little people building houses by cutting through rocks so we may dragons den that when we return, we are getting quite a list for dragons den ideas now....we will soon need about £1bn for all our ideas to take off) Later on Fluke kindly informed me that there is this cartoon called The Flintstones that had been around for quite sometime, so that burst my bubble!
Tonight I feeling crap....I am soooo sooo fed up with my food running straight through me just had a bit of a bad afternoon, just wanted to be at home with my family and my bed...but hey got some lovely peeps around me to cheer me up and keep me going.
We arrived at the campsite in Goreme, which was just such a strange place...no other words to describe!! Our campsite had a swimming pool and we could all sleep down in cave for the three nights if we wanted to rather than sleep in our tents. I decided that as I was feeling crap that I wanted my nemo (my tent...), peaches had also started to feel crap so he went and put his tent up and just chilled.
So after a month I decided that its about time I used my sleeping bag, everyone usually moans at me because I can never be bothered to get my sleeping bag out at night as in the morning you have to pack it away, as we were going to be here for three nights, thought I would treat myself, it was soooo amazing, I slept on it for the first part of the night then when I woke up a bit chilly @ 3.00am, it climbed into it and slept sooo well.
These three days was my chance to sort my stomach out, luckily we had some very good toilets and showers and lots of orange juice and water, after this little spout of illness I was hoping that it would harden me up a little....you can live in hope hey!!
We were all booked to go on a hot air balloon flight, it was sooo amazing we had to leave at 5.00am, we headed off and had tea and biscuits then all went to find our balloon. What an experience, there were about 20 people in our balloon and we were flying for about 1hr. Once we landed we had champagne and cake, all this before 8.00am what a way to start the day. In the sky there were about 30 balloons, just such an amazing site, its really calm aswell just like you floating gently in the sky.
Our time in Turkey is nearly done, we have seen so much in Turkey and as we have moved east the landscapes and people change, really interesting. At this stage we loose our 2 american friends, Caleb and Josh, which is sad as we have all been together a very long time in truck world now (truck world is sooo much longer than normal time) and have got to all know each other really well, ok we gain 2 extra seats but the 2 Iranian guides will use them. The next time we see these guys will be in India and hopefully the truck would have got all the way through Pakistan by then aswell.
Today we head off for 3 nights bush camp......arrrrrrr we are so going to smell, its very warm and we will all start to get a bit moist on board the truck.....(note....there must be another word that can be used instead of "moist" its such a yuck word...any ideas???)
