Today we have a day off to relax, do the laundry, some bike maintenance, write a post and swim in the Black Sea (well, swimming is a bit difficult as the waves are huge due to the ongoing hard wind from NE… Let’s call it thrown around the Black Sea).
We found our camping spot yesterday afternoon just along the beach in Yaliköy, after a short but off-the-road track from Kiyiköy.
Again we are confronted with only very nice local people. If we would accept every tea offered to us, whilst entering another small village (there is always a square around a mosque and a group of old men drinking their tea on a terrace), we would only manage to bike 10 km’s a day…
Already two days ago (time really flies…?), we checked in at the Marina Hostel, where the host appeared to be a real entertainer, with a huge smile on his face and of course tea for free!
The next morning we were served with traditional Turkish breakfast, homemade by the mother of the host. He learned us some Turkish words and we left as a friend of the Marina Hostel. Thank you (teşekkürler) Kaan, we really enjoyed your enthusiasm and hospitality.
And now it’s tea time?
