Seaside Bliss

Seville left a big impression on me, but I did not think about this incredible city as I was about to pass through the Gibraltar. This is an important point of my journey, the passage between two worlds; half of Tiki adventure, symbolic entry into Europe, a return to the past… I slowly go down along the coast of Spain to the Pillars of Hercules. I come to Tarifa, the southernmost point of Spain. Across is Africa and I move to the always exciting cruise through the Mediterranean Sea. The cradle of civilization will blind me with its entire splendor, that is why I have to be disciplined, I cannot hold more than anticipated because this trip could prolong. I must get to Istanbul as soon as possible. Believe me, it’s not easy. Since being attracted by the Mediterranean beauty I make a decision not to spend part of the time sailing along the coast. This decision scares me a little, after the Pacific and Atlantic I do not care much for the open sea. But I’ll save a lot of time if I avoid to hold on in France and continental Italy. Therefore, I supply with necessary groceries in Almeria and start my journey to Sicily.
Fortunately, the sea is calm. Everything is going according to plan. I arrived to the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea quickly and easily. Next stop is Greece. It wasn’t so difficult to execute this task. I solve problems easier because I think of Hercules and how he resolved “12 incredible tasks”. Somehow, everything goes smoothly. Time has flown by, and I’m already cruising along the northern coast of the Peloponnese, passing through the Corinth Canal and slowly moving north by Odysseus and Jason path. I will not tell you about all the islands I passed by. That's something one can write a whole novel about. I pass by the legendary Troy and enter the Sea of Marmara.

Istanbul, Turkey

My small raft is just a dot in respect of all ships that sail to or depart from Istanbul. It seems always crowded there. Somehow I squeeze through undamaged. I leave the raft in the harbor and start my quest for a new Tiki. I easily find Hagia Sophia church/ mosque/ museum/ building that is a symbol of this city for a millennium and a half. My destination is a hundred meters away. This time I decided to rest in a real hotel. I want to prepare well for the second half of my journey. Hotel Kybele excites me already at the entrance. It seems to me that in the lobby hundreds of different chandeliers greet me. The entire ceiling is covered with strange lights. Dark red color dominates in the room and the entire hotel. I enter the room that will be my home for the next week. It is also in dark red. The bed is comfortable. I think I deserved such rest after all ocean and marine adventures. I open the small door of the bedside table and a dark red Tiki awaits me there. On the bottle it says: Seaside Bliss. It cannot get better than this. All of this is truly a bliss. Pomegranate and blueberry blend perfectly into a fantastic flavor. It’s time for enjoyment.

I nonchalantly go to bed and think about the color that you cannot avoid in this hotel. Dark red is the color of mysticism, ecstasy, passion and beauty. It’s the color of all the revolutionary flags. Dark red is associated with power, will, fury, anger, desire, rage… The hosts told me that in Turkish dark red is pronounced and written “koyu krimizi”. I cannot miss to recall the novel “My name is Red” (Benim Adim Kirmizi) by the Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk. Already half asleep I see myself as the hero of this novel. I imagine and I may already be dreaming of painting miniatures in 16th century Constantinople, how I am persecuted, how I fall in love, disappear, come back again…
