Last summer, I had the chance to check an experience off my bucket list: Flying in a hot air ballon in Cappadocia, Turkey. When my family lived in Turkey, we didn't have a chance to explore the country as much as we would have liked. I always dreamed of seeing the hot air balloons in person, but never thought it would be possible. While visiting some friends in Istanbul in July, we decided to make my dream a reality. Check out the photos below to get a glimpse of just how magical the adventure was!
