We had an easy ride today of approx 280km’s travelling pretty much dead East from Konya to Goreme, which is in the heart of Cappadocia region of Turkey. We have been lucky with the temperatures in the last couple of days as the altitude (around 1,000m) tends to ease the heat.

Cappadocia is known for its facinating historical building that were built into the cliff faces and under ground dating back to the 2nd century and some of the townships supporting up to 30,000 people living in underground homes!

Seeing the sun set over this land was amazing and we managed to get out on the bikes and venture around some of the relics as darkness fell.

we have had such a great welcome and assistance from the Turkish people and today it was our turn to help back. A young lad had come off a quad bike and skinned both his knees and with no antiseptic etc. at hand he was concerned, so we gladly assisted with supplying first aid antiseptic and pads for him. It was nice to be able to give back.

Finally we get to help a Turkish person in need following a quad bike crash.

And finally for the day, we managed to come across a “Kebab Center”, something that amazed us both. Ha

We have always wanted to visit a Kebab "Centre". Facinating!
