fairly early in the morning from KaÅŸ to go to Olympos. A small town along the
coast. I got there around lunch time and relaxed a bit the rest of the day
going down to the sea to check out the water - it was wet and warm as expected.
it was time to go and se the attraction of the place Mount
Olympos - which has absolutely nothing
to do with the famous mountain in Greece the home of the gods. The
reason to go to Mount
Olympus after dark is to
see the eternal flames which come out of the ground on the mountainsides. Several
places along the top of the mountain there are small fires coming out of the
ground must be gas coming up and then just burning continuously. It's a cool
thing to see and a good way of killing a couple of hours in the evening - it
will help to reduce excess alcohol consumption while travelling at least temporarily.
day it was time to do something active for a day instead of just travelling. It
had to involve water considering the heat wave in Turkey. Diving would be an option
but since I would be at the Red Sea later it would make some sense to save the
money for that - especially since there where no options to go diving on a site
of some ancient ruins from the Greek or Roman era. Instead the choice became a canoyning
trip through one of the local rivers - it was quite nice to spend a day
wandering through the river halfway cover in the water most of the time.
