Where are we going?!
To the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, an unrecognised state on the fringes of the EU! Although only Turkey insists the TRNC really is an independent country, the Turkish Cypriots have their own government, passports and flag. Flags that are really hard to miss, when approaching the disputed border from the south.
tot hier en verder seeks to travel to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in 2022, pending Uncle Covid’s plans. At this moment, our Abkhazia trip is set for 25 September – 2 October 2021, but if Abkhazia remains closed while Cyprus would open its borders for travellers again, an autumn trip to the TRNC would be possible in 2021 already.
Why would I want to go there?
Ne mutlu Türküm diyene – that’s what it says right underneath a 400 meter wide TRNC flag on the Beşparmak Dağlari mountainside. It’s sure nice to be a Turk, if you will. Can’t miss that one when approaching Lefkoşa from the Greek part of the island.
But there’s more hidden in those jagged mountains. In addition to inflammatory slogans, this is where to look for abbey ruins and Crusader castles. Greek and Roman heritage? Check. And of course, you can also hit the beach. There’s a good chance you’ll have the golden sands of the Karpaz peninsula all to yourself. When the sea turtles are not there to lay their eggs, that is.
