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.
