I ended up my visit and went on to ride along the coast. I was getting moreand more impatient for famous Akšaabat meatballs at the Master Nihat Usta's.
Another province ahead.
Trabzon and then I make my way to Maška, very famous with its Sumela Monastery.
My camping ground.Just on the riverbank. Gurgling water. Nice to hear it in tent.

Just taken in the tent. Nice, isn't it?

I had my shower and had my dinner. I checked my mails and went to sleep.
Next morning, I woke up and had my breakfast. I didn't pack anything. I left everything in the tent and went to see the Monastery.
Route taken yesterday

So many trout farms on the way, along the river

The river accompanied me up to the monastery

Typical wooden houses made of logs

Hitting the road

About 15 km up to the monastery with an appr. elevation of 1600m.

The spring of the river.So loud to stay but worth seeing.

BMW advertorial, one of my favourite pics

Elevation, but I went higher w/o bike
