Distance Traveled: ~2149km
Cyprus Ferry Info:
7-8 hr Ferry from Ta┼čucu, Mainland Turkey to Girne (Kyrenia), Cyprus with Filo Denizcilik
Memorable Impressions:
There is a distinct difference in culture and the economy between the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Republic of Cyprus. The northern part of Cyprus though Turkish seems yet not really Turkish. The trading restrictions imposed by the international committee due to Turkeys so called illegal occupation of northern Cyprus if evident everywhere. This does not keep away the retired expats which buy up the coastline piece by piece. The southern part of Cyprus is Greek speaking. Yet again it does not feel very Greek. Modernization slowly does away with the culture. The parts we enjoyed most were the ancient Greek and Roman sites and the vineyards.
