>Sitting on Top of the World – Geris Village
Reaching the restaurant is half the fun. When you see a sign that reads ‘Geris’, on the road leading to Gumusluk out of Yalikavak, you take a left to wind up a steep hill with hairpin turns. At the top, you reach a picturesque village that feels like a page out of a story book; I was told most of its new inhabitants are artists, this is easy to believe. I think this place would inspire even the most pragmatic individual. The photographs I took were by no means an attempt at being artistic but just an outcome of my circumstances, my husband does not like to stop until we get to our final destination.
We got there just when dusk was settling in and the whole landscape was beginning to be engulfed in a purplish red tint. In our front row seats for this spectacle, we were like perched eagles overlooking the valley.
The mezes we had were all prepared perfectly, the service very good, the view magnificent – I can’t wait to go back. This place is a must for anyone visiting the area.
