Em & Craig’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 28 Sep 2002

Map Back again...After the bus trip from hell..Well for Emma anyway!So the rumours about Olympos food are true..Emma must have got food poisoning from something there but it didn't hit her until 1/2 hr into a 9hr overnight bus trip!So vomiting every 20 minutes (craig was counting!)until 5 am.Terrible night had by both of us.The bus staff thought it was funny & were more concerned about getting spewed on than the wellbeing of Emma.Enough about that,anyway took 2 days to recover.So Emma could have set a record on the Top Deck chunder chart!
Now enjoying Goreme in the Cappodocia region of Turkey.Fantastic weird landscapes created by volcanic rock & years of erosion.Today went to where the scene of the sandpeople in the 1st Star wars was filmed.Explored down 8 levels in underground cities (60 metres).Went on a donkey ride across a river & explored the buildings in the Fairy Chimney valley.You have to see the pics to appreciate it.
Tomorrow night we're going to attempt another overnight bus trip-wish us luck!! (We're not eating all day..)
