Well early start at 5.30am. On the road at 6.30. Our tour guide is a stickler for time but I don't blame him.people and buses everywhere!

Off to the cascades and thermal pools in Pumakkale, and it is simply exceptional. Breathtaking! They have a thermal pool here that is believed to make you look 10 years later after swimming in it! Due to our time we only got to dip or feet in it but spent lots of time soaking on the sights.

Finally got some gifts for my girlfriends 😊

Off to the ancient Roman ruins. Seriously! Wholey crap this place is old! Over 2000 years old to be precise! Soo much history I can't barely stay to write it. But I recommend doing a wki lookup!

Standing where gladiators fought till the death, where lions would rip Christians apart (considering there were a lot of active Christians here alongside Muslims is interesting.

Look it up! I highly recommend it.
Little more shopping finally got a while cashmere/silk scarf and a pure silk scarf! Score!!!

Lunch was pretty average and way over priced (everything had been reasonable so far) but the more remote we get the less options for a crowd of 120 at a time.

Off to the carpet factory and we nearly, seriously bright a 20k rug (bartered them down till 6k) bit at the last minute changes or minds. We'll def be back to buy some investment pieces!

Off to the hotel and I get a massive spa treatment.
sauna/body scrub/turkish spa (covered in bubbles) full body massage and a facial mask. Simply beautiful.

Now just waiting for them to sort out our bed and hopefully sleep soon!
Great day 😊

Highlights were seeing poppies growing in the wild and a great dinner feed including chicken nuggets and turkey! Haha turkey in turkey :p

Night all!
