Hiking in North Cyprus – Video Vlog

Hiking in North Cyprus

today is May the 4th, and as my son told me this morning, that means it’s Star Wars day! I never heart this before. So May the 4th be with you all! 🌟 I loive start wars and start treks even today and I can watch them again and again, just like god father or Rocky.

Today, I ventured into the mountains for a hike with a group of people I’ve never met before. I wanted to stepping out of my comfort zone!

 I found this hiking group on Facebook run by a guy named Engin sah.

 I figured, why not try it out?

I asked my friend Daniel to come with me, and we headed off to explore the area west of Kyrenia, including Arapkoy and Alagadi valleys.

I’m no stranger to walking, I try to get in my 8-10k steps every day.

But hiking for 9 kilometers with a group of mostly over 55s multy national people?

That’s a whole new challenge.

Surprisingly, my friend Daniel, who isn’t much of a walker, managed to keep up just fine. I guess the stunning scenery helped motivate us all.

Hiking up the hills was a bit tough, but thankfully they weren’t too steep, maybe only about 50 meters long. I recommend using walking sticks if you have them. I’ve seen olive sticks for sale at the Wednesday market; those could work well enough.


Speaking of scenery, there’s something truly magical about being surrounded by nature. Away from the hustle and bustle of civilization, it’s so peaceful and serene.

 I always find that I can truly relax and connect with my inner self and the world around me when I’m out in nature.


And you know what else? Walking isn’t just good for the soul, it’s great for your health too!

 Doctors recommend at least 30 minutes of walking a day to keep your heart healthy and reduce the risk of various diseases.

Plus, it’s free and doesn’t require any fancy equipment. Only some sticks , its Win-win!


But I’ll be honest, halfway through the hike, I started feeling more like a cameraman than someone trying to connect with nature.

I guess sometimes I get so caught up in capturing the moment for my channel that I forget to just enjoy the experience for what it is.


What I learned from this hike: It’s important to balance between enjoying the moment and the busy everyday life. You have to step out of your comfort zone and try something new, something you’ve always had in mind, something different.


No matter where you are in the world, it’s beautiful and in harmony with everything. We should lift our heads up and try to connect with nature, taking some time for ourselves. We humans also need to take a breath of fresh air, just like any other living beings.



Hey, despite my little sunburn mishap (note to self: always wear sunscreen!), if you don’t want to end up looking like a red lobster by the end of the day like me, it was a fantastic experience. I even made a few new contacts along the way.


As I say ? Stepping out of your comfort zone and joining new groups can lead to some pretty amazing experiences.

 Thanks for joining me on this adveture.
