    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..

    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

    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.

    Last day in Cyprus

    September 7 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    We have decided to spend our last day at some spots where we enjoyed it the most over the last two months. We woke up at 5.00 am to see the sunset, but didn't manage to see it because of humidity. An army of moskito soldiers was attacking us so we had to wave the white flag and left this wonderful scenery. The next stop was at the Sea Caves. It was still early in the morning so we could enjoy this beautiful scenery alone (what a privilege, normally never happens according to locals). Afterwards we went to see the Sculpture park and Cactus park. In the evening we enjoyed our last sunset at Cape Greco and ended up having some drinks with our friends :)Read more

    Geisterstadt, Kap Greco, Strände

    July 9 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Auf dem Weg zum östlichsten Punkt von Zypern (Kap Greco), bin ich erneut an die Grenze gefahren, um einen Blick auf die Geisterstadt Varosia zu werfen, diese wurde 1974 von einem einem Tag auf den anderen verlassen. Gepanzerte Fahrzeuge der UN fahren hier hin und her, ein wahrhaft gespenstisches Bild. Auf dem Weg zum Kap Greco bin ich auf viele schöne Seehöhlen und Strände gestoßen, am Abend bin ich in Larnaka angekommen, der letzte Punkt meiner Reise auf Zypern.Read more

    January 5, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Na tomto juhovychodnom cipe Cypru, ktory stale patri greckym cypercanom, je dalsi obrovsky narodnay park. Pre nas nezvycajne, ale tu bezne, ze narodny park moze byt aj kamenna pustatina bez jedineho stromu. Taky je aj Capo Greko. Z jednej strany ho bicuje more, z druhej ma nadherne modre laguny na potapanie. Uzasne vyhlady a plaze tu boli. S takymito pieskovymi plazami sa im tu stavaju rezorty jedna radost. Pozreli sme po ceste aj morske jaskyne, rozne kamenne obluky a ine prirodne utvary, ktore tu more uz cele starocia formuje do skalnateho pobrezia. Cestou domov sme sa uz tesili na poslednu veceru. Vyhliadnuta Izakova taverna nas nesklamala. Dali sme si rozluckove rybacie a seafoodove mezze. Casnici nosili a nosili. Tolko tanierikov, ze sa na stol nepomestilo. 🐙🦑🦐🦞🦀🐠Read more

    Cape Greco und Umgebung

    October 9, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Heute ging es Richtung Osten. Auf dem Plan standen als erstes Cape Greco / Blaue Lagune und die Natur Brücke oder auch Love Bridge genannt. Cape Greco ist Endstation für Zivis, es folgt noch ein Hochposten der Nato. Hier sind klare Vulkanische Geländeformen zu erkennen. Baden ist hier nur mit einer körperlichen Grundfitness möglich. Klettern, Klippen, Felsen und Brandung sollten in Ufernähe nicht unterschätzt werden. Die Ausflugsschiffe "parken" deswegen etwas weiter draußen. Aber es gibt sie die Wagemutigen. Auch wenn es verboten ist die Nature Bridge zu betreten tun es "zuviele"Read more

    Profitis Ilias

    October 9, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Nächstes Ziel war Profitis Ilias. Eine alte Kapelle hoch oben im Berg - natürlich mit Cache. Als erstes mussten 173! Stufen unterschiedlicher Größe und Höhe bei kuscheligen 37° überwunden werden. Aber wir wurden mit großartiger Rundumsicht belohnt.Read more

    Grenzübergang

    October 9, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Es ist nach wie vor traurig zu sehen, daß diese Insel immer noch zweigeteilt ist. Nachdem wir uns ja bereits in Nikosia von der Teilung überzeugen konnten, war auch hier ganz klar zu sehen, was dieser Konflikt anrichtet. Leerstehende Gebäude in Grenznähe, Kontrollen, Militär und Fotografierverbot. Deshalb nur ein heimlich gemachtes Selfie 🤔👀Read more
