Day 241: Leaving Mount Nemrut

Heads on Mt Nemrut

Got to Kahta yesterday. Once off bus we were greeted by a tout who wanted to take us to his hotel and offered tours to Mt Nemrut. Told the tout we were planning to stay closer to Nemrut at the village Karadut and try hitch a ride to the summit, so weren’t interested in his offer. He told us his hotel’s name: Kommagene. Immediately rang warning bells – this hotel is known for ripping tourists off, we learned from a post on Thorn Tree. I told him we were gonna grab a bite first and if we reconsider we know how to go directly to his place. Continued 繼續看…

第二百二十七天: Up?!

熱氣球,點綴了整個奇石區。是無心插柳嗎?全幅圖畫揉合得很完美。

這邊一個紅白的,那邊有幾個黃的藍的,前面是彩色的;有些在峽谷低飛,只隱約看到它們胖嘟嘟的上半身,有些在高空慢飄,襯托白色、淡粉紅和微紅色的千形萬狀的石和山,是非常卡通又漂亮的可愛拼圖。 Continued 繼續看…

Day 226: Up in the air

Up, up and up!

I’m a little boy again, running around Cappadocia’s fairytale landscape with balloons suspended mid air all around me. Like colourful bubbles floating in a gravity-less dreamscape, it is all very very surreal. Continued 繼續看…

第二百二十二天: 伊斯坦堡

著名的南清真寺

土耳其,來了十二天,只到了伊斯坦堡和番紅花城,原因是要申請簽證 (兩個成功一個失敗)… 也好,腳步慢下來,我們在伊斯坦堡細味生活 (主要是在住處享受家的感覺,與 R&D 樂也融融)、試著適應和香港相若的急速步伐。 Continued 繼續看…

Day 222: Istanbul, Isdamncool?

Turkish lamps

Yes, pretty cool indeed, though I can’t say I’m particularly excited by Istanbul. Blame it on the visa applications that have exhausted our moods. That aside, there’s a real energetic vibe and I’m convinced this city doesn’t sleep. Continued 繼續看…

Day 218: Visas = bitch

Istanbul – floating fast food on the Bosphorus

Been in Turkey a week now, but seen more consulates and banks than mosques and bazaars. Damn them visas. We’re in the process of applying for four – Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan – to pave way for our overland route home. It feels like a game of scavenger hunt where one must first decipher the various countries’ requirements, collect passport photocopies, trek out to the consulates (which are very far), complete application forms, Continued 繼續看…
