I visited Turkey during spring. I was with 2 friends of mine, Antoine and Sébastien. We started our trip in Istanbul, then we went in the Bosphorus to see the black see, after what we arrived in Cappadoccia.
The Blue Mosque.
We visited Heybeliada, one of the islands of the Princes, near Istanbul.
We also enjoy the relaxing turkish daily life: sweets, tea, walking through the city…
Istanbul is a gorgeous city, full of life and history.
We staid here for a few days, then we arrived in Cappadoccia, an amazing place in Turkey.
The pink valley and the strange stones of Cavusin.
Turkish people are very friendly, the showed us some nice places to put the tent and to ride.
The Pigeon valley.
Kilim shop of Vahdi, in Uchisar.

Map of Istanbul with the participation of Sébastien.
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!
