Zelve Open Air Museum – Nevşehir

In Nevşehir, Turkey – through the Deviant valley (also known as the Valley of the Fairy Chimneys) – one finds the Zelve Open Air Museum. In pre-iconoclastic times,  Christians moved to Zelve to hide during the Persian and Arab invasions.
Today it is a truly beautiful site to wander and contemplate the lives of those that made this otherworldly dwelling.

Dibek Traditional Cook – Nevşehir

We kept our dinner at Dibek Traditional Cook for our last evening in Cappadocia, and regret it a little. Dibek Traditional Cook is hands down THE BEST restaurant we went to during our entire excursion – and we shoud’ve had dinner there every evening!!
