Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
It wasn’t a fantastic day today… We wanted to visit the Greek ruins of Khersones, just outside Sevastopol. That shouldn’t be a problem, since we have a quite detailed map of the area and since we are becoming used to the Cyrillic alphabet. Alas … after more than 2 hours of driving in and around Sevastopol, we just couldn’t find it! Road signs? Didn’t see any… Street names? Too far to properly read them. Plans to visit the city center itself were quickly put away; all these concrete buildings, shopping malls, too much traffic, … just scared us away.
So, we left and explored the coast road between Sevastopol and Yalta. A very beautiful scenic drive, of which we will take pictures later. Not that I had forgotten my camera today or that I was too lazy or tired to take pictures, but we were occupied with something else… Our rear number plate – after having endured 2.987.065 holes in the road – decided it was time to say goodbye to our car! Luckily, a lot of people warned us before the thing fell off completely. And a very friendly man helped us to screw it back on. Problem solved!
We spend our last evening in the very cosy Ruslan and Ludmilla Hotel. The staff here is so friendly and helpful, let’s hope our hotel in Sudak will be as good as this one!
