In the small town of Avanos in Turkey, 16,000 locks of female hair hang from a pottery house. And while the Cappodocian area of Turkey has been well-known for its pottery for thousands of years, it’s this human hair museum that’s bringing in the tourists.
Whatever you do, do not forget your camera when you visit Turkey’s Pamukkale Thermal Pools. This geological phenomenon is located in the Denizli Province of southwestern Turkey and is unlike any other thermal pool you’ll come across.
Six weeks following the Tunisian massacre that left 38 people dead, a five-star hotel in Turkey decided it was a great idea to prank its guests with a simulated poolside terror attack. Men entered the pool area of the Grand Yazici Mares hotel in Icmeler, Turkey, brandishing imitation guns as part of an ‘entertainment programme’.
Christmas time is when you can indulge in all those delicious foods you’ve forsaken for the year, like turkey, plum pudding, and ho-ho-honuts. The Ho-Ho-Honut is ‘the best bits of Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, crafted into a savoury donut’. By ‘all the trimmings’, I mean safe-infused dough, turkey salt, roasted potato crumble, and […]
If you’re planning a trip to Turkey anytime soon (or just want to keep something in mind for that bucket list), you’ve probably got Cappadocia on that list. This incredible region is home to some of the wildest topography in the world, with rocky landscape made into caves people have been living in for more than 1,000 years.
American foodies’ favourite holiday is fast approaching-Thanksgiving-and if you want to celebrate with all the trimmings, good luck to you. But if you just want a good old turkey dinner that’s travel-friendly and semi-delicious, look no further than Thanksgiving in a Bucket.
Sure, hot air balloon rides are in every country, but nothing quite beats a hot air balloon ride above Cappadocia. Alfonso Salcedo took these amazing photos above the surreal landscape of Cappadocia, in Turkey’s Central Anatolia region. The area is known for its ‘unusual moon-like landscape. It’s mixture of naturally formed hills, deep canyons, valleys, […]
Turns out you can use a single sweater in protecting your entire body from the freezing cold. It also turns out that you can use that sweater to instantly shape-shift into a turkey, as demonstrated by one Japanese blogger. Sebuyama, a resident writer at Japanese comedy site, Omocoro, didn’t have enough money to buy himself some appropriate winter clothes this year. So he took the only piece of clothing he had, a sweater, and wrapped that around his entire body. And ta-da! Instant human turkey, fresh from wacky world of Japan.
When the Gezi Park protests happened across Istanbul in May this year, Karaköy’s Galeri Mana ended up opening Armenian artist Sarkis’ art show only part of the time. In September, the show reopened with Sarki unveiling a new work: a rainbow installation that had been in a year’s making or so. The work had a […]
Photographer Umit Bektas took this series of pictures for Reuters that shows some of the world’s most celebrated athletes posing with their daily intake of food. Warning: it’s a crazy spread. Just looking makes us hungry. Athletes sure eat a lot.
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. The Pammukkale in Turkey looks like a bewitchingly tranquil place with these natural terraced pools. Apparently when earthquake activity thousands of years ago brough chalk-like water rich in calcium carbonate to the surface, the substance piled on layer after layer, accumulating to form the terraces.
Beards are fun. Even more fun when they are seasoned from unconventional materials like, er, plasticky toy dinos, as seen in this editorial spread of Tush Magazine.

The Face of Tomorrow is a concept for a series of photographs that addresses the effects of globalization on identity.

Eat Your Heat Out, Miss Cakehead’s curated grotesque food site, features this realistic raw turkey cake made by Sarah Hardy. Really though, who wouldn’t want to feast on one of these at Thanksgiving dinner?
She Past Away is a new wave/post punk band from Turkey, Bursa, the opposite shore of the Marmara, formed by Volkan Caner (vocal/guitar) and Idris Akbulut (bass) in 2006. Clashing gothic lyrics with buzzsaw guitars, the band evokes the cavernous experiments of darkwave era with the likes of The Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus and Suicide.
