Location | Pamukkale, Turkey
They say a picture says a thousand words, yet no words or pictures will ever be enough to describe this place. We both agree that Pamukkale wasn’t something we knew about or ever even imagined visiting, but the moment we stepped foot on the hard mineral rock we couldn’t believe our eyes. As Cliche as it is, it was one of the most beautiful natural wonders we have ever seen, if not the best. The terrace style pools (think rice paddie fields in Indo with the different levels) are layered down the hill with a constant source of water running through them. Mother Nature really turned on something magical there. The pools are only about knee deep, perhaps even upper thigh – still perfect for having a lil splash and taking in the incredible surroundings. If you do plan on visiting Pamukkale we recommend you just take one camera (plus a cheeky go pro – if you can), sunscreen (sooooooo reflective and serious burn occurs), sunnies (or else you will be squinting all day like Tuj) and the 25 lira ($12.50ish) for entry. You really don’t need anything else, not even a towel because it’s so hot you dry literally the second you step out of the water. Oh, on that note bring water, lots of water. Hydration is key people.
We are coming to you live from a dolmus (mini bus) travelling down the west coast of Turkey from Fethyie to Olympos. Yes, these buses do have wifi; we think it’s time you stepped up city
fail rail/Sydney buses and got wifi.
