Wake up, stretch, yawn, rub eyes, is that Darth Vader outside? Look out the window, What the!?

The first time I visited Cappadocia I was broke, so my friends and I had to do it on a tight budget. We still had an amazing time, but this time around I wanted to fill our 3 days in Cappadocia with a bit more of the tours …
