Soaking in the mineral spring travertines amongst the cotton cliffs of Pamukkale! 🏔💨 . What looks like snow is actually just calcium deposits forming a mountain cliff with terraces of pools. 👙 . The ancient Greeks and Romans used these mineral springs for their curative properties when they were feeling ill. Today we use them as a preventative measure for health & longevity! 💎 . #health#longevity

The Wish Tree! 🧿✨🧿 . All over Turkey you will see the Nazar Boncuğu (aka ‘evil eye’) which were created to protect you against misfortune or injury. . In Istanbul they were found all over the city (especially in the Grand Bazaar), but here in Cappadocia they are found decorating trees! 🌳 . #evileye#superstition
