In our fifth year of travelling things haven’t got any less exciting—we learned to sail a yacht in Malaysia, went hot air ballooning over Cappadocia in Turkey, and survived an adventurous housesit on a remote farm in Spain. So, what’s next?
We travelled for nearly three years without a mobile phone. We weren’t technology shy—we need it to work and had laptops, cameras, kindles, and iPods—but a phone just didn’t seem necessary. We’d actually never owned a smartphone—in the UK we were saving for travel and it wasn’t a priority.
Turkey is a meat loving country that’s also a vegetarian heaven. We had moments when we couldn’t find anything but kebab shops, but Turks also love their veggies and eat many dishes that are meat-free. We always found a veggie friendly option and ate very well.
Cappadocia is a fairytale land in the centre of Turkey. Soft volcanic rock has eroded to create a moon-like landscape of unique rock formations including the conical spires known as fairy chimneys. The multi-coloured canyons and valleys are stunning places to hike and are dotted with cave churches and homes carved into the rock that have been inhabited for thousands of years.
We’re pleased to announce the launch of Drawing Class for the iPhone and iPad—a great little app for the travelling artist unable to get to a life drawing class.
