Cappadocia the name, traditionally used in Christian sources throughout history, continues in use as an international tourism concept to define a region of exceptional natural wonders, in particular, characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. Moreover for me to write this, in particular, is for my passion. Which is for traveling, travel and explore the world. My homage to travel depicts my efforts to motivate people for traveling. My book In love with Japan is the example of my gratitude for traveling. 

History of Turkish Cappadocia

By the end of the early 12th century, Anatolian Seljuks had established their sole dominance over the region. With the decline and the fall of the Konya-based Seljuks in the second half of the 13th century, they were gradually replaced by the Karaman-based Beylik of Karaman, who themselves were gradually succeeded by the Ottoman Empire over the course of the 15th century. Cappadocia remained part of the Ottoman Empire for the centuries to come and remains now part of the modern state of Turkey.

Nevsehir 

A fundamental change occurred in between when a new urban center. Nevşehir was founded in the early 18th century by a grand vizier who was a native of the locality (Nevşehirli Damat İbrahim Pasha). To serve as a regional capital, a role the city continues to assume to this day. In the meantime, many former Cappadocians had shifted to a Turkish dialect (written in the Greek alphabetKaramanlıca). And where the Greek language was maintained (Sille, villages near Kayseri, Pharasa town and other nearby villages). It became heavily influenced by the surrounding Turkish. This dialect of Greek is known as Cappadocian Greek. Following the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey, the language is now only spoken by a handful of the former population’s descendants in modern Greece.

Tourism in Modern Cappadocia

The area is a popular tourist destination, as it has many areas with unique geological, historic, and cultural features. Touristic Cappadocia includes 4 cities:

  Nevsehir, Kayseri, Aksaray, and Nigde

Among the most visited underground cities are DerinkuyuKaymakli, Gaziemir, and Ozkonak. The best historic mansions and cave houses for tourist stays are in Ürgüp, Göreme, Guzelyurt, and Uçhisar.

The Great Göreme

I lived mostly in Göreme and witnessed its inexplicable beauty. To travel, explore and to learn. A small town surrounded by mountains said to be made by volcanic ash. Amazing views from one corner to the other. I had witnessed surprising swing of change in weather over the period of five days where I was able to witness sunny days, rain and indeed the sweet snow.

Getting Around

Once you have landed in the town of Göreme it would be more fun if you like to explore it yourself as I did. There is plenty of information a lot of people around to sell you their services it is pretty easy but I decided to explore it myself. There is a local bus stop right in the middle of the town surrounded by various shops for souvenirs. You can find items like clothes to artificial jewelry and from restaurants to small grocery stores. The local minibus goes to Nevsehir crossing Uçhisar.

The local bus is somewhat helpful if you have decided to roam around on your own. It will only take 3 Turkish Lira to drop you to Nevsehir. And as Uchisar is on the way you can drop by for many attractions on the way. Including pigeon valley and Uchisar Castle. It is that easy. For Urgup though there is another bus that goes and that leaves the Open air museum on its way. So you can explore much more on your own rather than paying for taxis and stuff.

The Fabulous Encounters

I met a few fabulous personalities in the town of Goreme and Nevsehir. Among those to mention is a beautiful girl (I cannot mention the name. Because she is afraid of her boyfriend might get upset if her name or picture is mentioned in a travel blog). She has a nice soul and a charming personality that you’d fall in love in the first fifteen seconds. If you happen to have a chance of meeting her in person. Her humble generosity attracts your heart towards her. But an ultimate denial blocks your path as soon as you try to communicate. Even with these barriers, she is amazingly wonderful.

Fatih Muhammad

This is one of the most exciting and the most memorable encounter in the history of my traveling life. Because I was trying to exchange money which was a currency other than Euros and US Dollars. Hereafter, In Goreme, I didn’t find any luck to exchange that money so I had to board a minibus to Nevsehir in an effort to exchange that money from a bank.

Unluckily people barely understand or speak English in these towns. I entered a bank while trying to ask the teller about exchanging money out of my curiosity. I was referred to him as he was the only person who could speak English.

Amazing

And the next thing was amazing. He not only helped me in the process of knowing. Why such particular currencies were not being exchanged in those small towns. But also escorted me to the nearest bus station. Yes, folks, you heard me right, he gave me a ride in his car and dropped me to a nearby bus station for my convenience and not only that he stayed there until the bus arrived. More to the greatest generosity and hospitality he offered me dinner and also offered me any help whatsoever I could please to request and he was right there to help. Just one brother to another we mixed up in a chit chat and it was like we knew each other since ages. He told me he also can find me vacation packages. 

Cappadocia is an ancient city, and as soon as you reach this magical place. You would feel the generosity of nature with a unique and completely different style of landscape.

I believe the movie Alladin must have been filmed in Cappadocia. The rich culture endured in ancient civilizations can be seen immensely in this place. I love rain, and I love snowfall. You will get both over here. Cold weather with a view designed only for those who are unique themselves. Cappadocia has a lot of valleys from which. I love the most are pigeon valley, rose valley, and love valley.

Uchishehr castle has a mesmerizing view from the top and is best for hiking. A large picture of the countryside with colorful balloons hanging in the clouds. It is one of the most attracting and eye-catching destinations. The more you explore, the more you will love it and get inspired by its unique beauty.

The underground cities, on the other hand, are the site maps of an ancient civilization. And history preserved by the historians still to this day for people. To know the ways of life and old traditions.

There are so many attractions. Things to do, things to explore, and a lot more things to have fun. Local tours engage you in towards a beautiful nightlife where you can amuse yourself with traditional Sufi music as well as the famous Turkish nights to witness traditional belly dance.

The food is fantastic in Cappadocia. Just like all the other cities of the Amazing turkey, you can see numerous restaurants. With exquisite cuisines to give you the taste you desire. You can get any food that you like, the variety of food here will blow your mind. And always remember when you travel the taste of food. When cooked local with ingredients acquired from local sources. It is more delicious and something delicious to explore.

The souvenir shops, on the other hand, deserve their space into the fantastic sketch of this beautiful city. Hand made crafts from local people are just out of this world. And you have a massive variety to chose from. Moreover, you can get almost anything you could have dreamed of shopping from such a store.

There is plenty more discuss Cappadocia. Thus, one video or one article is not enough to capture its mesmerism. The beauty if Cappadocia is unique and designed for those who are unique too. Away from city lights, there is world living in ultimate peace in a beautiful way possible. A real ottoman style. Cave houses a unique and delicate form of seeing life from a different perspective. To feel the luxury of travel having the aroma of attractive scenery and a subtle lifestyle.

Like a theme she would evolve 

As a free bird as she may fall

diving into my firing heart

she moves naked and tall

softer and smoother than silk

No blemish on her body at all

Lips like roses in divine gravity

Soft chin rolls up like a ball

sweet cheeks tender as jelly

sensationally like a Barbie doll

The touch of her thrills me 

Carrying passion like a fireball

Exploring her beauty with a kiss

Her hair spreading on the wall 

Hands on her hips gripping slowly

Greedy spirits ready to crawl

Melting passion with her fire 

She flows like the waterfall

Dissolving down into her glory

I lavish her complete and all

Lima to Cusco

For somebody who loves to travel and traverse the world, their eyes are so valuable to reveal treasures. And properties that sprawl in the beauty of traveling.

Not all the people are rich enough to visit everywhere, not all the people got time to do so, people are busy at work or other commitments. But still, the people who can and don’t hold any barrier by their back are blessed. I travel not just to explore but to learn about the place, language, culture, and the hospitality people of that particular place offer. Its all about learning and a chance to educate yourself one way or the other.

Historical Grip

The most rapid known involved society in Peru, the Norte Chico culture, prospered onward the shore of the Pacific Ocean among 3,000 and 1,800 BC. These initial gains were followed by archaeological practices that originated mostly around the seaside and Andean areas everywhere in Peru. With a culture so vibrant and old it demands you to breathe in the air it carries and the skies it owns, the rivers and jungles it holds. From great archeology to modern developments, it’s a masterpiece to explore and learn.

It adjoins Ecuador and Colombia to the north side, Brazil to the east side, Bolivia to the southeast, region, Chile to the south side, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The Andes mountains go equal to the Pacific Ocean; they describe the three areas traditionally used to define the country geographically. The costa (coast), in the west, is a narrow plain. It is frequently parched except for valleys formed by seasonal rivers. The sierra (highlands) is the precinct of the Andes; it includes the Altiplano plateau as well as the highest peak of the country, the 6,768 m (22,205 ft) Huascarán. The third region is the selva (jungle), a vast expanse of flat terrain covered by the Amazon rain-forest that extends east. Almost 60 percent of the country’s area located within this region.

Peruvian literature is rooted in the unwritten cultures of pre-Columbian improvements. The Spaniards began writing in the 16th century; colonial learned phrase included narratives and spiritual poetry. After liberation, Costumbrism and Romanticism converted the most prevalent literary styles, as illustrated in the works of Ricardo Palma. Such writers spanned the early 20th century’s Indigenismo drift as Ciro Alegría and José María Arguedas. César Vallejo composed modernist and usually politically engaged verse. Modern Peruvian literature exists so thanks to artists such as Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa, a foremost member of the Latin American Boom. Peru travel, Peru facts to Peruvian food.

On the Top of the wish list – Places to go

Cusco – Machu Picchu

machu pichu

Inca walls, bright outfits, churches built on top of palaces, castles missed in the Andean heights. Fabulous roads-all the vision of a remarkable past that surrounds the visitors who visit in Cuzco. The eternal city of the Incas and archaeological capital of the Americas. US archaeologist Hiram Bingham found the citadel of Machu Picchu for the world. Cusco has inspired the thought of millions of travelers from all over the globe who stake down the Inca Trail every year.

They head for the summit of one of the world’s most remarkable masterpieces. The city of Cuzco, though, emphasizes many other attractions which by themselves would be sufficient to draw visitors. The main intersection, which the Incas called Huacaypata, the artisan’s area of San Blas. The Convent of Santo Domingo mounted on the roof of the Temple of the Sun or Korikancha, and the mansions of the Inca and his entourage are a portion of a lengthy listing of archaeological wonders.

Lima City of Kings

Iquitos – Amazon River

iquitos1

Iquitos, capital of the field of Loreto, is Peru’s main port onward the Amazon River. The city established in 1757 started to boom from 1881 onwards as an effect of the rubber tapping industry. One can still notice hints of that financial bonanza in structures such as the former Hotel Palace constructed in Art Nouveau style with materials taken from Europe and Casa de Fierro. It was designed by French architect Gustave Eiffel and is such a masterpiece to watch. These constructions contrast with rural homes that line the Belen quarter, where all buildings rest on pilings due to the reality of the river extending many meters during the rainy season. A boat ride, along the principal rivers and lakes throughout Iquitos, is especially beguiling for visitors. Local tribes mostly live along the shores of the Amazon, Napo, Ucayali, Marañon and Nanay Rivers.

Huascaran National Park

There, in all its antique beauty, endures the Callejon de Huaylas. This spacious valley, any 200 km (124 miles) deep, is divided by the Santa River and fringed by a charming group of towns and villages, between them Huaraz, Carhuaz, Racuay, Yungay, and Caraz. It is a realm where time resembles to have lasted still. Wedged within two rising mountain chains: the Cordillera Blanca and the Cordillera Negra – The Callejón de Huaylas – proffered growth to the ancient Chavín civilization, who have devised a legacy in the Chavín de Huantar temple merely hours from the city of Huaraz, the capital of the office of Ancash.

Traveling to Amsterdam | Visit Amsterdam | Schipol airport

People travel around the world for many reasons. I travel to meet people, know and understand their culture, taste food, and wine, and get in love with that place. It is not just infrastructure which defines a place but more importantly, the people, their way of keeping that environment closer to nature. Places are gifted by nature either by geographical locations or by weather, food, sports, culture, or surroundings. However, what makes it beautiful and worth watching is the beautiful people living in that paradise utilizing the gift of nature, adding beauty to the placing keeping it alive and charming. I discover people in places I visit, for their beauty defines the whole logic that place is blessed by pleasant weather, charming scenery, variety of food and most of all an adventure of exploring the beauty within beauty. If you are traveling to Amsterdam and the purpose is to visit Amsterdam. Precisely if you are landing on Schipol airport then you’re entering heaven.

I met people from all backgrounds here. Beautiful people with calm on their faces, some rigid and some very pleasant but a few of them hospitable and good at heart.
I am mentioning some incredible people whom I met in Tbilisi. As soon as I reached out of the airport, there were Taxi drivers. Who almost try to get you to sit in their ride by force. However, I saw a minibus standing there, and without any hesitation. I reached and asked bluntly, ” Is there anyone who speaks English here, please ?”.

So here came a beautiful voice from a pretty girl,” Yes, I do.” Also, then not only she guided me on how to use the public transportation system in Tbilisi but also paid my trip, which was “50 Cents” from Airport to Liberty Square. I tried to buy the ticket but didn’t have coins, and the bus accepts coins only then she paid for my trip.  I can never repay her, nor I’ll ever be able to thank for the greatest of hospitality shown in there.

Numerous stories are full of natural beauty on this planet. Moreover, of various beautiful places, Srilanka is one of the most charming stories of its kind. An ancient place with much heritage. Inherent capacity to attract people from all around the world to visit. Besides all Sri Lanka facts and all is written for facts about Sri Lanka. budget travel is associated with this place. It is a beautiful place.

My Trips

My trips to Srilanka had been phenomenal. I have traveled more than seven times to Srilanka on various occasions. I had been to Colombo, Galle, Candy, and Negombo. Moreover, you don’t need a reason to visit Srilanka that often because it is filled with the natural beauty of forests, beaches, green meadows, ancient ruins & elephants, you name it.

Sri Lanka facts | Facts about Sri Lanka | Budget travel First Time in Srilanka

Srilanka is also one of those countries in Asia where people love to watch cricket as much as they love to play. It has also produced world-class players over the years in this regard. I still remember when I traveled the first time to Srilanka I had a flight from Singapore. I have had a couple of drinks in mid-air and was in bit fare mood. The landing was typical, and it was raining. I could imagine my eyelids had twitched on the window’s glass seeing the plane landing in heavy rain. Apart from rain and green plants, I could see a massive crowd of people as the small airport was surrounded by them all over. Pretty strange to me but could only be able to find out why, when you are out of the airport. The airport is pretty far from Colombo and very near to Negombo. Two different, totally different cities. The airport was small, well tiny and so as the duty-free. I realized that there were their Cricketers from their National team and I could see them shopping in the duty-free right next to the Immigration counters. Now I understood why there were people outside the airport, obviously to see them.

The Cricket Team

Well, you call it a sheer stroke of luck or whatever but I was about to see them in person for the first time in my life. There was a long queue of people on passport control. Moreover, luckily, I didn’t have to wait much to reach a counter. I got the entry, and there you go the whole of the Srilanka cricket team was in front of me. I requested the team manager that I am a fan and want to talk to them. He not only allowed me but also introduced me to them. I met Attapatu, who was captain at that time, Chaminda Vaas, Jayawardene, and Jayasuriya. Believe it or not, I went through the green channel at my way out from the airport along with their Cricket team. The green channel was especially for players only, but I was having a chit chat with them and didn’t notice that they allowed me to go with them. Budget travel is associated with this place. It is a beautiful place.


When we were out, I saw their buses, but an extraordinary thing I witnessed was Muralitharan ( a world-famous bowler) was standing on Bulldozer and waving the crowd. It was too noisy outside as people were screaming with joy watching their players passing by them. I enjoyed it.

Cities and Beaches

The sites in Srilanka are remarkable, yet I resided mostly in Negombo. Moreover, few times in Colombo. Negombo is a city famous for its beaches. Beautiful beaches at the cost decorated by hotels, shops, clubs, and pubs. Colombo, on the other hand, is the capital city. But as I saw at that time, it was not as developed as other major cities in the world. Crowded streets and much more. I loved Candy and Galle too, but I liked Negombo more and stayed there more often on my trips. Budget travel is associated with this place. It is a beautiful place.

People from around the world

It’s a fact that people from around the world travel to Srilanka. I was astonished when I saw the beaches there as a massive number of beautiful girls I could see; it was so amazing. People of Europe, Australia, and Newzealand, travel there a lot. There is plenty of entertainment. I mean imagine half-naked girls having a sunbath at tremendously beautiful beaches it sounds fun. I was not expecting this to see in Srilanka but was amazed. One more hilarious fact I found there was that I asked a fisherman who barely could speak English, drunk but stable. Besides all Sri Lanka facts and all is written for facts about Sri Lanka. budget travel is associated with this place. It is a beautiful place.


I asked him, ” Do you have a girlfriend” it was like I am mocking him or something and look what he answered me in surprise, he replied, “Yes! One is from France and one is from Newzealand”. I could not believe my ears and laughed at him saying, ” look at you, man? Are you serious? “. He laughed but said wait for a few minutes and watch so out curiosity I stayed, and I saw a beautiful girl not much different from a celebrity in her 20s came and french kissed this half-naked, stinking fisherman. I was shocked and fell on the ground, unconscious. I said to myself, ” What’s wrong with this world?”. Then later I realized that it’s not much strange in there. Moreover, I hated myself why I was single and could not have a couple of girlfriends like everyone else, but then the answer from my heart was ” I am not a bad guy.”
There are many pubs down there, and you actually can enjoy a lot, in some at night you have traditional dance performances and much more. There is a lot to discover and a lot to be expressed what you observe and watch there.

Food

There are a lot of fast-food chains operating in Srilanka. The traditional food is so spicy that only a few people can taste it. It is too much spicy. I tried one that they cook on a large pan, and they fry bread with chilies and gravy. I could barely have a few bites as it was extremely spicy. One more thing in their food is that they cook mostly in coconut oil. The taste is different.
Moreover, I noticed even the expansive restaurants used to cook in the same. After a few days, it was challenging to eat everything cooked in coconut oil. I used to travel from one part of the city to the other in search of restaurants to try something different and find out food cooked in oil other than coconut oil. Pretty hard to find such. Traditional fruits and vegetables are easy to find. Dry fruit also pretty famous and delicious. Besides all Sri Lanka facts and all is written for facts about Sri Lanka. budget travel is associated with this place. It is a beautiful place.

 Things to do in Kuala Lumpur | Visit Malaysia | Dream city

I was quite young when I boarded my first ever flight. I was nervous a bit. Curious and cautious to understand the behavior of people from around the world. Habits, language, and adopting a new environment were the primary concerns. I had a layover in Bangkok. I saw Thai girls for the first time in my life.  When I landed in Kuala Lumpur, I had to board a train to reach the main terminal. A quite formal interview by the Immigration officers and then I was in the main lobby.


Didn’t have any acquaintances but I as being a Student I had all the tools in my head to learn, explore, and get used to of a beautiful city I just landed. Went to the information desk and hired a Mercedes Benz as the Taxi to Kuala Lumpur city. Kuala Lumpur is a paradise for those who love pouring raindrops from the sky, green meadows and refreshing air to breath. I was amused by such tacky views outside the window where raindrops were gathering in rhythm for me to write a poem so beautiful that angels from heaven should fall and show me mesmerizing beauty of nature. Finally, I reached Kuala Lumpur. For a person who travels for the first time and reaches a city like Kuala Lumpur its a pretty different and unique feeling which cannot describe in words. You have to be there with open eyes to witness it and enjoy it. I dropped my bags at the Hotel and soon I was heading towards a restaurant. Things to do in Kuala Lumpur can be interesting.

Food Things to do in Kuala Lumpur | Visit Malaysia | Dream city

The food there is fantastic. You will find numerous restaurants with plenty of dishes and choices. Many people who love food its a paradise. You will find all type of restaurants in there with almost everything you can imagine having at your lunch or dinner table. Tea and Milo ice are those drinks which are very common in Kuala Lumpur. My favorite breakfast was ” Roti Talor” ( A bread made with eggs -served with curry). Rice is the main ingredient in addition to any other dish you want to add. 

My other favorite was ” Nasi Kandar” and “Nasi Goreng” ( Friend Rice) especially when they are spicy. Other than the food, the most exciting thing about it is the nightlife. Very entertaining and colorful. Bangsar to Bukit Bintang, it is just amazing. There are so many attractions, parks, resorts, markets, malls and shopping areas where you can enjoy most of your time. Moreover, most of all, the magnificent KLCC Petronas Towers. Center Market, Mid Valley, Petaling Jaya, Ampang, KL central, Brickfields, Sunway, Cheras, and Dataran Merdeka are my favorite places.

City of Dreams

 Things to do in Kuala Lumpur | Visit Malaysia | Dream city

Kuala Lumpur is a city of dreams. I started studying there and took a course “Diploma in Business Administration (ABE program from the UK).” My college was just high. I wrote a poem on my college, and they published on their website and the notice board. I was also asked to write on the excellent “Mahathir Mohamad” when he was retiring by my college, but I was so unlucky that I got sick and could not complete the project. Things to do in Kuala Lumpur can be interesting. If you are planning to visit Malaysia which is no doubt a dream city, you must read this blog.


I feel unlucky that I missed the opportunity to write something on a great personality of all times. I later wrote a poem on Malaysia and was much appreciated by college friends. I got some every green and fabulous friends from Kuala Lumpur naming ” Asif ” and “Jalil.” Both are great friends and keen advisors. With Asif used to go to Bangsar mostly but there was a guy named Shahid Butt, an ultimate dance freak when he used to be in a club. We were mostly late at night after clubbing and partying, and the Hostel gates shut and we would always request the security to open the gate, but they would never do that, and we had to wait till sunrise to enter into the building. It was fun, however. Unfortunately, I was not lucky enough to have a girlfriend while in Kuala Lumpur yet all my friends did. So sad, hehe but I enjoyed my time there even without a girlfriend.

I did have a recent visit to the city last year, and I revisited Kuala Lumpur after more than ten years. I was pretty emotional this time and watched the city with my teary eyes, the tears of joy. I was happy to be so intrigued to have given the opportunity by nature to revisit the city. Moreover, capture the memories where I started dreaming once and which was the city of my dreams. There were many changes I observed since I was studying and now but one unchanged thing was my love for it, my devotion, and my affection for Kuala Lumpur. It is infinite and forever. Things to do in Kuala Lumpur can be interesting. If you are planning to visit Malaysia which is no doubt a dream city, you must read this blog.


Its a place where you want to be to create imaginations, to conquer your goals, to learn the innovative approach towards life and many more things. There are memories, and there are stories to be told, and they are so many. I wish I would have time in the near future to write and share with you guys. So visit Malaysia as soon as you can.
