Hot air ballooning is big business in Cappadocia. Since the first balloons ascended in 1989, the sunrise has always been greeted by these seriously picturesque additions. We were utterly determined to take our turn in the sky, as it is undoubtedly the most extraordinary way to see Cappadocia, and we booked to fly with Turquaz… Continue reading The Most Extraordinary Way to See Cappadocia – Turquaz Balloons Review

Red Canyon, Desert & Kibbutz Life Tour – An Abraham Tour from Eilat

Is kibbutz a uniquely Israeli idea? Maybe not, there are communes throughout the world, however, I can’t think of anywhere else where governments have supplied land and funding to fledging communities in the same way. Knowing little about the kibbutz life, (other than people’s personal tales of joining one during their travel through Israel) I… Continue reading Red Canyon, Desert & Kibbutz Life Tour – An Abraham Tour from Eilat

Getting Spooky with the Ghosts of New Orleans – A Ghost City Tours Review

New Orleans has an air of the macabre about it. Whether it is the city of the dead graveyards, the voodoo rituals and rights in the city’s parks of the gaunt faces of hungover bachelorettes climbing gingerly into their minivans early in the morning. With Halloween just three days away we joined Ghost City Tours… Continue reading Getting Spooky with the Ghosts of New Orleans – A Ghost City Tours Review
