💦 The Great Salt Lakes of Pamukkale💦

Updated: Jun 16, 2023

The morning began with my very first Hot Air Balloon over the place where I would spend my afternoon in healing waters:

We arrived and made our way up to the top. THE MINUTE we got there, my body was practically begging to dive in... so I listened and obeyed 😂😇

It was slippery!! You had to be VERY CAREFUL where you stepped. Moss was a no go. What was super amusing to me was the "angels" (i.e. shirtless dudes walking around in white and black angel wings) offering to take selfies with people🤔


As in you could get your photo snapped with Turkiye's equivelant of a male Victoria's Secret Model.... for a "small fee" 🤣


I somehow opted out, but I did find it to be entertaining ❤️

As I was legitimately worried about spraining my ancle (I witnessed about 10 different people almost do so during my 30 min in the water😐). I did not last long. BUT, I loved the entire experience

My only regret? More time! It would have been amazing to have had the opportunity to submerge myself in them. BUT, it was a fabulous first visit❤️
