      About this trip


      We’ve all heard the descriptions of Istanbul being a bridge between Europe and Asia, a place where East meets West and where cultures have coexisted for centuries. But not everyone is aware of its endlessly fascinating contradictions 

      Straddling two continents, this magical meeting place of East and West has more top-notch attractions than it has minarets (and that's a lot). 

      History resonates when you visit the majestic Byzantine basilica of Aya Sofya.   The secrets of the seraglio will be revealed during your visit to the opulent Ottoman Topkapı Palace complex occupying the promontory of Istanbul's Old City.  The chaotic and colorful Grand Bazaar is the best-known shopping destination on Istanbul's historic peninsula, but it certainly isn't the only one.  


      As if plucked from a whimsical fairytale and set down upon the stark Anatolian plains, Cappadocia is a geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty. The Fantastical topography is matched by the human history there. People have long utilised the region's soft stone, seeking shelter undergrounds and leaving the countryside scattered with fascinating cavern architecture.  The fresco-adorned rock-cut churches of Goreme Open Air Museum and the subterranean refugees of Derinkuyu and Kaymakli are the most famous sights, while simply bedding down in one of Cappadocia's cave hotels is an experience in 21st century cave living.

      My mom and I had a great time. It was a great blended group of women. I had the opportunity to meet up with my TravelJunkee Family and meet new TravelJunkees. This was my mom’s first experience traveling with the group. She thought it was an awesome group of women and loved how you could mix with anyone at any given time. It was fun had by all. Looking forward to my next trip with the TravelJunkees.
