Arriving to Turkey

Hello lovely readers! On Spring Break my mom and I went to Turkey. We bought already organized tour. There were flights, hotels, breakfasts, transfers with a bus and a guide included. I had been waiting for this trip for a long time.
You have no idea how much I like plane flights. This flight was one of my favourite ones! I know it sounds strange, but it really was. The plane took off from Vilnius somewhere at 8 p.m. I was sitting by the window when the lights on the plane where turned off and it began to lift. I could see beautifully lighted plane runway. When we were above the clouds the sunset looked even more prettier than on the ground. By the time we were landing in Turkey we saw thousands of city lights. It was an unbelievable view.
When we got out of the plane and took our luggage it was freezing cold outside. As you know or may not  know it is not the season in in Turkey at moment. The bus took us to a fancy five star hotel. I was so happy to finally be there and the view of a well lighted pool from our balcony was just amazing!
The next day we had lovely breakfast and went to a meeting with a guide. He told us what we were going to visit during our trip. Also we bought a packet with dinners and museums. After that some of our tour friends went to a boat trip and my mom and I decided to spend our day in a hotel by the pool. Despite the fact that nights in Turkey during this time are cold at day time it's really hot here! About 20 degrees.
The next day after the breakfast we got on the road. Our direction was Cappadocia. During our trip with a bus we stopped to visit a mosque and museum of Dervishes. When we entered a mosque all women had to wear scarves on their heads. This was necessary. It was kind of an attraction. After we went to museum. Dervishes are Islamic clergymen. They are known for their famous whirling dance. They can spin hours and hours. This is kind of a pray. When we were there a strange thing happened to me. I went out of the toilet and I saw about 50 kids running into me. They were shouting and greeting me. Some of the girls said hi to me and asked if I could take a picture with them. Of course I agreed. This was the moment of a lifetime. I think these girls were Turkish and a tourist to them was something special. But why me I still haven't figured out. Later we stopped to see an underground city. It was a bit creepy to walk through those narrow tunnels, but also fun. In the evening we reached Cappadocia. We settled in a nice hotel and spent a calm evening inside. 
Hope it was interesting to read. Stay tuned and the next post is going to be about the one and only Cappadocia!
