Lefkada Island. That is a starting point on all the new adventure .Camp , walk , hitchhike and what ever it takes to get around Greece !
We woke up in camping that is located only 2 km away from Lefkada town.Also known as Lefkas town .Camping was called " Campingg Karoites Beach"
We arrived late at night and after many hours on the road anything that resembling a bed would work .Owner lead a way to little white caravan under the trees .No towels , sheets or any luxury at all .Bathrooms and showers about 5 min walk in the building . But they had a hot water !
Coffee was a must .But unfortunately owner just drank last mink as he informed me while digging in fridge with glass door .
Orange juice ? He asked while grabbing about 4 oranges from fridge .
My friend K is still a sleep and there is still a full glass of orange juice on the camping wooden table for her .Just as i considered to drink it while waiting for her to wake up , she stepped out trough tiny caravan door.
With massive backpacks we walked towards exit after paying 25 euro for 1 night stay at caravan and 6 euro for 2 glasses or fresh orange juice .Yes .Orange Juice was a rip off .
A Macedonian couple was on the way out .Yellow shirt guy was ok to give a
Us a lift until Kalamitsi town . They were on the way to the beach and stayed at the same camping property as us for the night .
From there we wondered around this little town = Kalamitsi .Still full with hope to reach magical place known as Vassiliki .That was set to be destination for the day .
2 peaches and 1 cigarette later we were on the side of the road and a older man from Romania stopped .He was clear on the fact that English was limited .But to my surprise he was able to speak little Russian .Seems 10 years he spent in school with some Russina language classes have stuck to him a little .
He dropped us off in Athani town .And we were still since morning after a cup of coffee .We walked down hill passing closed tavernas , little hotel like places and many stands selling honey .Seems Lefkada is THE place to buy honey .
Coffee pitstop. With little chips and tzatziki .Expensive to say the least .4 coffees , tzaziki and chips cost us 16.80 euro .That`s not cheap .
Lady in pink was speaking to barman next to us .So we asked if they happen to go in direction to Porto Katsiki. They confirmed that yes = they are going there and said they might think about this while having coffee.1 coffee later they decided against giving us a ride .
So we hit the road again .
We got on the road and managed to catch a Romanian couple who was heading to the beach directly !
They were even kind enough to do pitstops at view point for us and of themselves ,of course !
We arrived .Romanian couple parked a car in tight squeeze spot and we started to wonder around.
Place felt as something you would read about a fairy tale book.
Turquise blue water with waves crashing against bright grey beach filled with big , small and tiny pebbles instead of sand . So farm and soft . We walked to the end of the beach side by side with massive grey cliffs and sat in a shade .Out Sommers over prices apple sider was still cold. K had a bottle opener .
And there we were in out first destination o the way to the real destination .
View with slight breeze was one to record in your mind and dream about .
We stayed for a while and watched many go in the water and play with crashing waves creating white jacuzzi feel .
Dark clouds started to gather around the beach and it was time to go . After many stairs up we hit the top and sat the on the green benches .Its funny how we didn’t even knew that beach is there we came there for the view point . So beach was unexpected surprise !
Well .. Back on the road !
