Day 3: Mount Erciyes & Kayseri

After 2 days in Istanbul, we were now headed to Kayseri.¬†Being on a budget trip, we took a taxi to Taksim around 3am to jump on the Havatas airport shuttle to Istanbul Sabiha airport. Lucky for us, the¬†Pegasus flight to Kayseri was light¬†and I got an entire row to stretch out. Our hotel was booked in Cappadocia and we didn’t want to carry our backpacks with us, so we rented a car at the airport. It was a pleasure driving through the scenic passes.

We spent the rest of the day wandering through Kayseri.

We got too lazy to return the car and drove it all the way to Kappadokiya. We ended the day with the most delicious lentil soup in Goreme centrum.
