From the boarder we drove through wide plains, which we were not used anymore since we drove through the Balkan. We passed Thessaloniki and drove further on to the first finger to Sani Beach. Next to a resort for richer people, we parked our truck directly on the beach, fantastic. We enjoyed the dunes, went walking along the beach and cooked nice food.

Unfortunately Vladimir had to go back to Skopje the following day, so we brought him back to Thessaloniki. We then drove further east and found a place on a hill between two villages Nea Iraklitsa and Nea Peramos. We stayed in between olive trees and had a fantastic view to the sea and the island of Thassos.

In 15 minutes walk we could reach nice rocks for climbing and with our bicycles we were able to go shopping and swimming in the sea and have a shower. Nearly every morning we enjoyed beautiful sunrises out of our bed.

We went climbing nearly every day and after having succeeded in our project “Viagra”, we lost a bit of our climbing motivation. We still stayed for another few days and went with our bicycles to Kavala, for enjoying the city live.

In the meantime we started with the preparation for Georgia learning the alphabet and the first words.

18 days finally were enough, we wanted to explore new things. After a few e-mails we found a farm in Turkey on helpx. Looking forward, how Turkey will be like, regarding as well the political situation, we drove to Alexandroupoli, through wide plains, autumnal nature, marvelled fields of cotton and arrived in the last big town of Greece on the way to Turkey. We slept in the town, made a stroll through the centre, drunk a farewell beer and drove in the morning to the boarder.
