Parkour on Mars?!

We recently dropped the first of our 4 part Turkey series, 'Storror in Turkey - Cappadocia'. Keep reading for a little diary of the few days we spent there and some more info based on a few questions that popped up in the YouTube comments.

After an awesome time exploring Istanbul and cliff diving down south in Fethiye, we hopped on a night bus for a 12hr slog to Cappadocia, Turkey.

We arrived early in the morning with swollen feet again, most of us managed about 4hrs sleep. Spotted 'Coffeedocia' and stormed straight in for some breakfast and a mammoth charging session.

Once Jerome the drone was charged, set and ready for world domination, we headed straight to the rock houses of Cappadocia. Probably one of the best places we've ever been. Jumps, climbs, unlimited caves, tunnels and amazing views from every weathered window.

Filmed some wicked star wars runs and made sunset in a matter of minutes. Jerome did his thing and we went to get some dinner.

We always lock on to food places we like and it always does us plenty of favours, so without even discussing it, we were back at Coffeedocia where the staff ended up recommending us a place to sleep for the night, a 'hot church'. We resorted to a taxi (after the waiter drew up the worst walking directions imaginable) that took us to a dusty path which led straight to the ruined little church thing they had told us about. At best, it was just under room temperature haha.

We all woke up after a quality night's sleep to a hot air balloon sunrise surprise. A truly breathtaking view, incredible landscape topped off with a sky full of hundreds of balloons.

After shooting some surreal footage we headed straight back to Coffeedocia and got some breakfast, fed Jerome some hard-earned electricity and got a lift from the restaurant waiters to rose valley. Another amazing looking place with some sketchy rock slides everywhere.

Walked back toward the main road and bagged some bangin fresh fruit juice from some aviator local before catching sunset from another rock tower cave mansion... Epic end to our brief time in Cappadocia. Grabbed some more grub from our pals at Coffeedocia and hopped on our 3rd night bus in 5 days.

And if you're wondering why we released this video before Istanbul, there's no reason. Deal with it.
