Turkey: Part IV + A Giveaway

Here are the last of my photos from Turkey! These photos are from Konya and Goreme, which were an amazing end to an even more amazing trip!
To celebrate me finally letting go of this trip (well on the blog at least) I have a giveaway for you of presents that I specifically brought back from Turkey! 
Konya

In Konya I was hit with the lovely stomach bug that was making it’s way through our group and therefore I was MIA for basically the entire stay in Konya. I got to see some sights on the walk from the hotel to dinner the first night and that was about it.
the felt makers in Konya are world famous
Goreme
This area of Turkey is known as Cappadocia and is famous for the fairy chimneys that are formed out of the rock after hundreds of thousands of years. 

right after a long sweaty hike I said “I am craving some melon” and then a wagon of melons rolls by. The entire group bursts into laughter! Kismet. 
these were churches carved into the mountains, some had frescos that survived the change of religion, but no pictures were allowed inside
 goreme is also famous for it’s pottery, which is still all handmade by family businesses 

Now for the giveaway! Most people have heard of Turkish towels, there are many different kinds, sizes, and qualities. Some are made of pure Turkish cotton, some bamboo, and the cheap ones are made from a crappy kind of cotton that I wouldn’t let Winston sleep on. Personally I brought back four for myself. Two I’m using as bath towels, one a throw blanket in my living room, and one I’m holding back for spring for picnics, or any time I need a lovely piece of fabric between me and itchy grass. I also brought home two small tea sized towels for my kitchen. Which I’m afraid to use because I don’t want to get them dirty! Ahhhh the dilemmas. 

Anyway, for you lovely readers I have brought back one Purple and White 100% Turkish cotton full sized towel and one matching Tea Towel. 

this is the size of the large towel
