Today we walked the first day of the Lycian Way from Ovacik to Faralya the book said 7 hours , we did it in under 5.
It was a great walk brilliant scenery with sea and mountains always in sight.
As always I feel like I have lost a stone in sweat but it’s a wonderful feeling.
We are staying at the George House pension which is a little piece of paradise with the most fantastic vegetarian food.
From the George House you can climb down to the Butterfly Valley and the beach it’s a dangerous walk / climb down and many ropes are needed to assist you.
It was very scary and many times we thought about turning back but we so wanted that swim in the sea !
The swim was beautiful but we were concerned about our climb back up to the George House.
We almost took a boat trip to the next village but decided going up was usually easier and quicker than going down so off we went 🙂
Lucky for us it was easier and quicker so we just made it back as the sky’s opened to a magnificent thunder storm.
A fantastic first day and we are looking forward to the next 24 days of walking the Lycian Way 🙂
