"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Home from Turkey

The splendid front door of the Ulu Cami (Great Mosque) in Bursa.

Walking at Midas Sehri in the Phrygian Valley.

Touring the terrace houses at Ephesus.

Elliot pretending to bird-watch after pelting us with pebbles at Hattuşa (once the capital of the Hittite Empire).

Walking in Cappadocia.

Hot air balloons in Cappadocia, early morning.

Ceiling detail of the Kirkdamalti Church in the Ilhara Valley, Cappadocia.

The Hagia Sophia. I understand why the guidebooks say you’ll be stunned into silence.

The Chora Church, Istanbul. This might sound odd seeing as it’s a Byzantine church, but it really is an enchanting place.

The Baghdad Pavilion at the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul.

I’m going to try microblogging this trip—one photo and one anecdote per post. Should be fun!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
