Journey Through History and Modernity: TNCers’ Turkish Adventure

Jun 24, 2024   /  


Towards the end of 2023, TNCers embarked on an exciting adventure to Türkiye starting with Istanbul, the country’s capital. This ancient yet modern city was the backdrop for our first-ever Global Gathering event.

Last November, we gathered with our counterparts from sister companies, swapping stories from the trenches and brainstorming future horizons. Besides the productive pow-wows, we had a blast with some quirky icebreakers. These not only helped us get to know each other better but also cemented our camaraderie.



The beauty of Istanbul is truly enchanting. Taking a leisurely stroll along the Bosphorus Strait and taking in the beautiful views on both sides is so relaxing. We were mesmerized by the grandeur of the Hagia Sophia and the serene beauty of the Blue Mosque, eagerly anticipating the rest of our journey in Türkiye!



Cappadocia greeted us with a surreal landscape straight out of a fairytale. It is renowned for its unique volcanic terrain and astonishing rock formations, which give it an otherworldly appearance. Exploring the ancient cave dwellings and underground cities, we marveled at the ingenuity of ancient civilizations.



The hot air balloon ride at sunrise was a breathtaking experience. Drifting high in the sky, we were treated to a breathtaking vista of whimsical fairy chimneys and otherworldly rock formations.



Pamukkale, with its dazzling white terraces of travertine, was our next stop. Step back in time and immerse yourself in the ancient wonders of Hierapolis, where every corner, from temples to theaters, exudes a beauty that will leave you in awe! We soaked in the mineral-rich waters, feeling rejuvenated and invigorated, after exploring the ancient ruin, a reminder of the region’s rich history.



Antalya offered a welcome respite with its golden beaches and azure waters. Basking in the Mediterranean sun, we indulged in lazy days of relaxation, punctuated by leisurely strolls through the quaint streets of the old town, sampling local delicacies and soaking in the laid-back vibe.



Our journey culminated in Ephesus, where ancient history came to life. Walking through the well-preserved streets, we were transported back in time, imagining the bustling city in its prime.



The Turkish trip was a feast for the senses, with its rich history, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality. It’s a trip we’ll always treasure, filled with unforgettable memories. May these memories be forever cherished in our hearts, becoming a bright color in our souls. Looking forward to the next Global Gathering event, exploring the beauty of the world with TNCers!
