Day 376: After almost one month on the boat I was on the road again.
I had to cycle to Haifa to buy my ticket for the ship to Limassol.
The first day I went along the cost to the north. The conditions were almost perfect. It was not to hot and the terrain was flat. Only the traffic was a bit to mutch.
But after 60 km my muscles got tired after such a long absence from cycling.
I found a place to camp and had enough time to make dinner and enjoy the sunset.
Day 377: At 9 am I started cycling to Haifa. The road was still flat and easy and after 35 km I reach the city.
I quickly found the agency and bought my Ticket. It was not very cheap. 250€ for a overnight trip, including a cabin with dinner and breakfast. The Israeli exit tax of about 25€ was also included.
Now I had time till next day at 3pm. I needed a place for the night. I remeberd when we came to Haifa with the sailboat there was a small park very close to the marina.
Because it was only 4km away I decided to check it out.
Due to some railways and highways I had to take some detours and after another 12km I found a nice secluded place in the park. I enjoyed the sun for some hours and had enough time to set up ma tent.
Day 378: The next day I stayed in the park till about 1pm and left for the port again.
Well before 3pm I was waiting for the agent who picked us up and went through immigration, customs and passport control. At 4pm we entered the ship and could go to our cabin.
The cabin was fairly big and everything was clean and the shower was very refreshing.
At 5pm we had dinner and at about 7pm we left the port and put out to sea.
Only 3 other passengers were on board. On of them was from Australia and he is traveling for about 8 month now through Indonesia, Thailand, China, Nepal, India, Egypt, Israel and some other countries. So we talked about our trips and experiences the rest of the evening.
