Day 8: Girne - Eastern part of Cyprus
After swimming in the sea in the morning and filming an octopus on our action camera, we began to get ready for the road
And here he is) You can see him from 0:35
Flowers near our camp
And here is the camp.
Gallery found in Girne
I liked the pictures more than what we saw in Nicosia.
Near the fortress of Girne there is a sailboat marina.
Very cozy, expensive and of course all the places are occupied. For 1-2 days you can become, but for a long time it will not work out.
And another one )
Video on the pier near the Girne fortress
Here you can see the entire marina. By the way, the "harbor man", who is in charge here, speaks Russian well)
The inner courtyard of the Girne fortress. Entrance here is paid and quite expensive, but we managed to buy tickets for students to the one and only student that we had. They just took turns approaching the cashier, passing the jelly to the next one)
What clear water!
In the distance you can see another marina, the local "harbor man" said that there are empty places. It's east of Girne.
There is a museum inside the Girne fortress. This is an ancient Turkish gulet that was raised from the bottom and preserved here in the museum.
We have left Girne and are driving east.
We stopped for a halt near some ruined small fortress.
Near this fortress there was an awesome meadow with butterflies, there were more than a hundred of them)
Eat, shop and relax.
I noticed that a quadrocopter was flying above us) I decided to find out who the operator is and talk to him - suddenly I can get a video for myself. It turned out that the operator is a guy from Dnepropetrovsk who moved to Cyprus. To live in Cyprus, it is enough to have any property, this guy just bought a shack for 5k dollars and now he can live here. And then he sent the video to me) We can be seen starting at 10:30
Found another place to hang out. We had a bite to eat, otdonel, charged mobile phones from the sun and drove on.
Unreal look. This is a cape in the northeast of Cyprus. Here we met a Turk who treated us to barbecue :) Considering that we ate very little meat on this trip, everyone was wildly happy (except our vegetarian, of course). This Turk offered to bring his friend who knows English better (he was with a car) to our overnight stay and get to know each other. It turned out that the people were against this - distrust of a stranger played a role. Therefore, we drove another 10 kilometers further and only there we stopped for the night on the shore of a very cozy beach. Dimbut he dragged dry wood thrown ashore and we made a fire. Damn, how cool was that. By the way, this helped me quickly recover from my cold.
Looking at this sea, no, no, yes, and thoughts arise that we will set sail there, towards the horizon.
Track for today, we drove 73 km:
