MicroAdventure #19: The Pearl of Black Sea.
Posted May 16th, 2012 - 12:56 pm by from Kadikoy, Turkey (Permalink)
Hey everyone!
I m glad to make the announcement of our 19th Microadventure!
For the last couple of months many people were complaining about these trips starting from Thursday, and not being “weekend” trips as our group title was claiming.

This weekend you are invited to a Weekend Microadventure, that will start and end at weekend time. :)
We will be going to İğneada, a small town on the black sea coast, on the border with Bulgaria. This hidden place is a green heaven lying in the intersection between the Istranca mountains and the unabashed waves of Black Sea.

Here we have one of the most special type of forest, which there are only 5 left in the entire planet(one of the only 2 in Europe), a floodplain, covered with billions of untouched oak trees and home to many extinct bird species...

We will camp by the side of forest next to a 22 km of golden beach, trek and swim in beautiful rivers, visit Dupnisa cave, a cave that is 2.720 m long, home to more than 60.000 bats...

İğneada is 240 km away from Istanbul, we will start hitchhiking from Istanbul sharp at 07.00 (both from Mecidiyeköy and Kavacık), that is one of the most amazing roads surrounded by mountains passing through forest...
Here is İğneada: http://bit.ly/IXNczf

Hitchhiking will be great... But we will most probably have a car(to be confirmed at Friday) coming with us, leaving from Istanbul, so if you feel lazy to move your ass a little bit to hitchhike, you might cheat and come with a direct ride, (we will probably have space for 3-4 people). But this is not guaranteed so dont sign up to our event if you dont think you can hitchhike to Igneada.

Don't forget to sign up in the activity page, so we know who is coming...

You can also meet me at todays regular meeting if you have any further questions.

All the best
With Love
Ümit
