I visited Turkey during spring. I was with 2 friends of mine, Antoine and S├ębastien. We started our trip in Istanbul, then we went in the Bosphorus to see the black see, after what we arrived in Cappadoccia.

This trip in Turkey is special to me, because it’s the first time I travelled with a sketchbook, and kept practicing every day. Thank to my friend Ahmet, I discovered Istanbul with a local person, and had a wonderful experience of Turkish hospitality. I had a couple of free tea while I was drawing as well :)

I recommend you the amazing walks you can do in the valleys of Cappadoccia!
