In #Aphendrika , along with ruins of ancient churches, I ran into this car. For a minute, I thought I could sleep inside at night and avoid pitching the tent, but then it turned out to be too dirty. Dirtier than me on a three days hike, anyway.
I opened the trunk and had a peak inside, thinking the car was #abandoned .
Then I walked on, looking for a flat spot to camp before the night falls, hoping somebody would pick me up magically and take me to a home with a nice bed. (Yes, I am spoiled with all those miracles that happened to me lately.)
Suddenly, a car...this car! stopped by and a guy driving it asked me where I was going.
To Karpaz, I said. Can you give me a ride?
No, he said.
Okay then, I replied, as he drove off. That was weird.
And so I had to pitch my tent, make fire that didn´t burn as the wood wasn´t dry enough, because I was there on my own and there was nobody to rely on, but me.
Stay tuned for a wild donkey tomorrow and if you are curious for more, check out my blogpost on hitching and hiking in Karpaz on www.girlastray.com! Link in bio, just for you, you know.
Here I am, happy on my third day of #hiking (=dragging my heavy ass backpack with all my stupid things) at beautiful #Aphendrika ruins in #Karpaz . The reality was a bit different. I was tired (remember I have Lyme disease? So this was before I started the antibiotics. Yes, I really wanted to hike there, but fuck it was hard.), half wishing for a car to appear from nowhere and give me a ride to the village...but I only met two Ukrainians on bicycles, going in the opposite direction.
I walked around these ruins for a bit, took photos, feeling sorry for the cloudy weather (=thinking of my instagram because I´m vain like that) and considered sleeping there...but then I opted for walking on, to get as close to #Dipkarpaz village as I could.
I was on the road when suddenly a car appeared and stopped by my side...but I will tell you that story in my next post, so stay tuned.
