Hello all. Just so you know, yes, I am a big fan of the Eurovision song contest. This year it was held in the Eurasian country of Azerbaijan, in their capital of Baku. The song contest made it look like a very pretty place.
Very pretty overview
Here was the winning song from last year that allowed Azerbaijan to be our hosts (they did pretty well at hosting actually even if I didn’t really like their entry last year)
The last time I did a post about a place that featured in a video game, it was LA.
This time, I want to go to: Cappadocia in Turkey.
! A Dwelling in the rocks!
The game Cappadocia appeared in was none other than Shadow Hearts: Covenant (which I have of course reviewed). The game featured Goreme Valley which is within Cappadocia. The Valley itself doesn’t play much of a role, but it’s filled with nice scenes of caves and the characters all sleep in what is essentially a cave hotel.
That’s what I want to do. I saw this awesome website that has some really beautiful images of the rooms and the surrounding area.
Whether it be this hotel or another (Cappadocia is full of cave hotels apparently – ideally I’d love one in Goreme, but I’m not picky!) I’d love to stay in a cave hotel. It’s so quirky and reminds me of a game I really enjoy (what a nerd). I believe they also have nightclubs and restaurants in caves. Here’s a cool restaurant I stumbled upon.
The Queen has been to 116 Countries!. I would love to nomad it for a while and go to that many. I have only been to 12 of these countries. However I have been to Andorra, which the Queen has not been to Although I was only about 2 months old, which is a shame, I don’t remember it.
So, where has the Queen been? And where have I been? Here’s some pictures from Flickr of these beautiful countries. Thanks to all the wonderful people who made these photos available on Flickr with a Creative Commons license!
(Beware, image heavy. The Queen has been to 116 countries after all)
