Don’t Miss Out on the World’s Weird: Göreme’s Fairy Houses

currently playing on my iPod (Yes, I still use it. My poor phone gets tired, people.): Afshin’s Theme by Benjamin Wallfisch

Crazy-cool places dot this fair planet of ours. If you’re up for a trip, don’t settle for the same old haunts. Explore history, geography, the boards on TripAdvisor. New ideas for a spectacular vaca abound.

Here’s a wow one I found this morning at travelastounder.

Göreme’s fairy houses sit in central Turkey in a place where volcanoes had their way with the landscape. No, there aren’t any actual fairies. Save it for your cosplay, folks. BUT the tall, mushroom-looking towers made of tuff—a porous rock formed when a volcano goes bananas—would thrill even the grouchiest of Tinkerbell’s cohorts.

Throughout history, the region’s people crafted these relatively-easy-to-carve places into houses, churches, and amazing underground cities. 

It is just the coolest.

Now, be on your way. Traipse through the vast interwebs searching for your next weird and wonderful holiday spot!
