    Iltisembryos opfert euch.!

    August 12, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Der optimistische Radreisende packt optimiert..So optimiert, dass der ca. 10g wiegende Führerschein natürlich nicht mit auf Reisen muss..Der vergessliche Radreisende stellt fest, dass er optimiert gepackt hat, wenn er ein Auto mieten will..Naja der Bus ist ja auch eh viel günstiger..😅..
    Durch meinen Recht eingeschränkten Bewegungsradius entschied ich mich heute gegen die einzige geteilte Hauptstadt der Welt und für Cape greco..der östlichste Punkt der Republik Zypern, der auch noch paradisische Strände bietet..Der Tag brachte 38° auf den Tacho und niemand sonst war so verrückt in der vorrangig baumlosen Gegend umherzuwandern...Ich war also allein..So wie ich Wanderwege und abtrünnige Strände am liebsten habe..🙃..Und all das habe ich überlebt mit minimalen Sonnenbrand..Ich bin stolz auf meinen Körper..😂..
    Maria gibt mir ein Update von ihrem Zahnarztbesuch..Sieht nicht rosig aus, schmerzt wie Hölle und ist irgendwie komplizierter als gedacht..Bester Fall Freitag, solala case in drei Wochen, worst case ihre Reise endet in Skopje..Freunde Der Nacht, es wird wieder Zeit für Iltisembryoopfer.!
    Ich muss mir demnächst Gedanken machen, wie es für mich weitergeht..Aber solange der best case noch steht sind das Zukunftsprobleme..

    Dreist kommt weit

    August 13, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Ein ganzen Tag lang nichts tun..Für fünf Kilometer brauchte ich heute 5 Stunden, weil ich an jedem neuen Strand wieder mal ins Wasser hüpfte, mich zum trocknen niederließ und Leute beobachtet habe..Menschen machen voll lustige Gesichter wenn sie duschen..😅..
    Zum krönenden Abschluss habe ich mich an den Privatstrand eines fünf Sterne Hotels geschlichen..die Liegen sind soviel bequemer als die blauen Plastikliegen an den sonst völlig überfüllten Sandstränden..Und man muss sie nicht bezahlen, sind ja im Zimmerpreis inklusive..Und das Beste - es gibt den pina colada direkt an die Liege geliefert..😂..
    Der Bus hat mich anschließend wieder sicher nach Larnaca gebracht, von wo ich Morgen wieder nach Skopje aufbreche..hoffentlich nicht, ohne vorher noch das örtliche Spa zu besuchen..

    Kulinarische Künste

    August 11, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Auch heute zum Frühstück hat Nikolas Mama wieder ihre überragenden Kochkünste unter Beweis gestellt..Für eine Sekunde Frage ich mich, ob der Zypern Kurztrip eine gute Idee ist oder ob ich nicht lieber ein 4 Tage Balkan Kochbootcamp hätte belegen sollen..😅..
    Mein Jutebeutel war schnell gepackt..Fühlt sich sehr sehr lustig an..so wenig hatte ich für vier Tage noch nie dabei..Aber was braucht man schon bei 38°..
    In den Flieger zu steigen fühlt sich irgendwie seltsam an..Alles is so hektisch und durchgetaktet..Weder Check in Probleme, noch last Call rufe für meinen Flug bringen mich derzeit aus der Ruhe..
    Kaum in Zypern angekommen, übermannen mich 38° (was mindestens 20° Unterschied zur Temperatur im Flugzeug sind), Linksverkehr und eine Palmenbesetzte Mittelmeerküste in Lanarca..
    Ich schlendere durch die winzige Innenstadt, bevor ich mir heute Abend ein Steakhaus gönne..Wer schonmal bei einem meiner Dinner war weiß, was ich für ein großer burrata Fan bin..Die Perversion von Mozzarella, wer es noch nicht kennt..Aber heute schwebte ich im kulinarischen Himmel, als mir smoked burrata serviert wurde..🖤..
    Ich fühle mich sehr urlaubig..🙃..

    Larnaca H3 Trail #1764 - Cyprus

    February 24 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    After messing around in Ayia Napa for a couple hours trying to find our accommodations for the night, we had to break away and head out to the hash. The directions were written for the local hashers who know their way around, but we made it just in time to change clothes and get the chalk talk. The trail was actually really good. Although at the start the hares explained that it had poured down rain this morning and washed away the marks. So we basically had a lead hare take us around the intended trail. No matter, was really good. We had lots of shiggy dodging all the water puddles, good conversation, and we ran past a private zoo that had kangaroos, camels, goats, horses, and all the assorted other animals. By the time the runners finished, the walking pack had already finished. There was some good food (due to a birthday) of fried chicken and sausage rolls. The circle was pretty much your standard read from the script affair (but still good fun), but as the sun was setting, it started to get really cold. We did not last long after that, and headed for the car . . . since we still needed to go out and find a hotel for the evening. The good news is, we found one close by, got checked in, ordered a pizza, and then got hot showers and warmed up. Sleep tonight will be amazing for sure. Tomorrow we drive back up towards the Turkish side, but will not have to cross the boarder.

    Polygon H3 Trail #2078

    February 27 in Cyprus ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Not the most original trail (sort of a box you would expect from a new hare), but the pack was a lot of fun. We had a great time wrapping up four hash trails in four days here on Cyprus. This trail was up on the border, within sight of both the Turkish Cypriot (northern) and Greek (southern) outposts. The circle was fun until it got dark (and cold), so had to do another Irish Goodbye, and evacuate the scene. Overall, it was a great week on Cyprus. https://www.relive.cc/view/v36ArMByXGqRead more

    Nicosia Horrible H3 Trail #1646

    February 25 in Cyprus ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    What an amazing time running with the Nicosia Horrible H3 here in Cyprus. We arrived a few minutes early, so I walked around to make sure we were in the right place, and found flour . . . so good to go. Start time was published as 7:15 PM meet up, with a 7:30 run time (so full trail in the dark of night). Eventually the pack turned up, and they explained to us that the other hash clubs were all expats, they were actually local people that ran the hash. It was an older pack, but we still had a runners and walkers trail, and I am happy to say that this was the first trail (in almost a year) that I was able to run the whole way. Guess the old ticker is back on track. Trail was actually pretty excellent, with good checks, and a long ass YBF for the runners trail. Anyway, once all the walkers had returned, we formed up on the street for circle, with the usual stuff. Then we were wined and dined by the hares in one of their homes, with all sorts of local delicacies. So many nice people, was an actual joy to meet and hash with them all. If you get to Cyprus, make sure to get up to Nicosia.

    You Just Can't Make this Sh*t Up

    February 24 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    So, after our early morning start, we get to Istanbul for a short layover, and then off to Cyprus. As we were flying in, we crossed over the Turkish mountains covered in snow, and then as we got over Cyprus, all we saw was green green grass of amazing farm lands. We arrived in Nicosia (the Turkish side of Cyprus), and had a little trouble finding our rental car company. We finally track the guy down, and it is a fly-by-night cheapo rental operation with a guy working out of a briefcase. The first car he was going to give us, ended up not having the right paperwork, and he said we needed to drive an hour to the north side of the island just to get a piece of paper. Jo very astutely said, what about one of these other cars. So after a bit of looking, the dude offers us another car with the right paperwork, and that saves us a lot of time and frustration. So we discuss that we are going to be traveling down to the southern side of Cyprus (the Greek side), and he explains that we have to get to a certain boarding crossing by 2 PM, and then buy insurance, to go to the other side. Did I forget to mention that the gas tank was on empty? So we finally get the paperwork done, and off we go. Found the first gas station, and filled up, no worries. Then we head to the specified boarder crossing, and get there in time, and make our way through. The paperwork was a bit off, as the said our rental was a white car, but really was a gold/brownish color, but he let us through anyway. We then made our way through the city, and finally got on the freeway. Nice. We had booked basically an AirBnB type apartment not far from the hash site. We rolled into town, and pulled up where we thought it was, and the address did not match any buildings. So after 2 hours of asking various people (even people who lived right next door to where we eventually found it), we could not lock it on. We finally went to little cafe and had a beer, and got on the internet and did some more research. We found one picture of the balcony, and determined we had been there right from the start. So we went back, and got the run around from the neighbor, who we thin was in on the scam, and another guy shows up, opens up the room, and it is a mess. Nothing like the pictures, trash all over, beds not made, etc. So I just told them, refund our money, or we'll take it back to the online service he used, and file a complaint (still waiting). Then we just take off to find the hash, which was starting in 30 minutes. We finally found it despite the directions, just in time to change clothes and get the chalk talk (with the Larnaca H3). The trail was actually really good. Although at the start the hares explained that it had poured down rain this morning and washed away the marks. So we basically had a lead hare take us around the intended trail. No matter, was really good. We had lots of shiggy, good conversation, and we ran past a private zoo that had Kangaroos, Camels, goats, horses, and all the assorted other animals. The pack had all gathered at the finish, where there was some good food (due to a birthday) of fried chicken and sausage rolls. The circle was pretty much your standard read from the script affair, but as the sun was setting, it started to get really cold. We did not last long after that, and headed for the car . . . since we still needed to go out and find a hotel for the evening. The good news is, we found one close by, got checked in, ordered a pizza, and then got hot showers and warmed up. Sleep tonight will be amazing for sure. Tomorrow we drive back up towards the Turkish side, but will not have to cross the boarder. Wednesday will be back down near Larnaca, and will be a similar pack as tonight. More in the next post.

    Day 1, Cyprus

    December 11, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    So we set of today on An Ancient Affair, read in to that what you will. As usual right up to the last minute things were chaotic and the suitcases were still under the stairs at 9pm last night. But a late night and we made it.

    An early start this morning, up at 5am, out at 6.15 and checked in to Doncaster Robin Hood Airport and having a cuppa by just after 7 for an 8.45 flight. All fairly painless apart from Sharon thinking moisturiser and skin care isn’t a liquid, she now knows differently !!

    We landed in to Paphos at 15.00 hours local time which is 2 hours ahead of the uk, it’s a bit grey but the temperature is around 16 degrees which although not boiling it’s certainly warmer than home. It was a 45 minute transfer to the ship in Limossol by coach, again fairly painless.

    So we boarded “Marella Dream” around 5pm. Our room is just where we like to be, right at the back of the ship. A short walk outside, up 2 decks and were at the buffet, perfect. So that was our first stop, bit of snap then off to the bar. Now to be fair we don’t normally do all inclusive so we don’t usually drink, but as it’s all in we thought it would be worth a bit of a look. We haven’t upgraded to premium as everything we like is on the standard one so off we went. A couple of pints of Fosters and a Cointreau & Lemonade to start, a couple of pina coladas for the boss. And it’s just gone 7pm.

    We’re just heading back to unpack, muster station meeting is at 9pm so is the sail away party and the Abba act. So a busy first night.
    I can’t promise daily updates due to data restrictions but ill do my best.

    Speak soon peeps, Adios.

    Dhekelia H3 Trail #2792

    February 26 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We're in Cyprus, which way to the hash? Today, we got to run with the first hash club on Cyprus, founded on 30 Jan 1967. The grand old hash was founded before such things as the Jakarta Circle existed, so that tradition does not apply . . . so just a great trail, some jolly socializing, and a beer, then we were off into the night. Everyone was very friendly. Love hashing here on Cyprus. https://www.relive.cc/view/veqzD4P8VBORead more

    Nord Zypern

    September 30, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Wir haben rüber gemacht.
    Relativ einfach kann man zu Fuß in den türkischen Teil der Insel.
    Wirklich krass ist die Pufferzone in der auch zahlreiche, alte Gebäude stehen.
    Erinnert einen ein wenig an alte Berliner Zeiten.Read more
