We've left the Flinstones style scenery of Kapadokya, and have headed north. We're in a really cool town called Safranbolu. The old town here is full of old Ottoman wooden houses along its cobbled streets. Some have been fully restored, yet others are really dilapadated, which adds to the atmosphere of the place. The town is really touristy, with hotels everywhere (many in the old wooden houses), however, it is mostly Turkish tourists and english is not very common.
This is our last stop before Istanbul, where our trip will come to an end. It's been great, and I'm even slightly excited to be going home in just over a week.
