Turkey Trip Day 7: A water day from start to finish

I know I’m the only one who would realize this, but I’m actually reusing the title of a post that I wrote almost five years ago.  I could come up with a couple of better ones, but this one seemed appropriate, and there was some fun overlap between that day and this one, so...

Tulsa, Alberquerque, Broken Arrow… and Gene Pitney? American places, names, songs, movies… and bands.

Somewhere over the USATravelling a lot, I love a window seat on a clear day; or even a cloudy day, when the sky above the clouds is open. Flying over the USA, I'm always stunned by the natural beauty of the vast, huge areas which are still free of huma...

On Thursday, we headed out to valley outside of Goreme that’s known for its fairy chimneys, also known as hoodoos. Per Wikipedia, hoodoos “typically consist of relatively soft rock topped by harder, less easily eroded stone that protects each column from the elements.” In the case of the hoodoos in Cappadocia (the region of Turkey where Goreme is), the rock...

Turkey Trip Day 4: And then there were camels

Let’s just say that, of all of the things that I expected of this trip, that getting the guys to ride camels would NOT have been on that list. It’s not that they’re not adventurous–I mean, they ARE here with me. Heck, they willingly live with me. That alone requires at least a rudimentary sense of...
