Day 5

This morning we got up and because of the time change I always had to double check that I wasn’t thinking South Africa time. So after a quick shower my sister and I headed down to breakfast.

After we had eaten something we headed off for the day. I think the worst part of the drive was the distance and the heat. My sister wanted to swim and I wasn’t to fased what I did. I just wanted some adventure. Our first stop on our day road trip was to a  castle that Turks built centuries ago. It was huge! Then we headed to a beach for lunch and a swim. The water was crystal clear and quite warm.

On the way back to the hotel we took a long way round by driving through a pass. We went through two passes. It remained me of the passes in America. Lots of forests and rivers. It was so beautiful! The windy roads with pine trees and rivers and waterfalls on either side of the road. As the pass winded itself up into the mountain one can see a few houses scared here and there and also the old village. The pass kept on going on and on and eventually landed up at Messinian Bay. Then we drove back to the hotel to rest before going to find some supper.
