In May, garpikes fill the waters here; in June, kite-surfers fill the sky. There is no one here now. The season hasn’t yet started. The only people we meet are the wedding guests brought back to life again. Today is the last day and we’ll be parting ways. Others bond for life. That’s life.

Winches, four-wheel drive, differential lock, kinetics, roof tents, hi-lift, water tanks, off-road showers, canned goods, generators and CB communication. Satellite maps of the area.

You can go virtually anywhere as long as you can drive, you can sleep anywhere and survive. The expected, difficult mountain terrain turned out to be very flat and friendly for motorists. We could have driven the miniature Fiat Type 126 car and we would still have managed to get around without all the heavy equipment we’d brought for use in a difficult terrain. But it’s a blast. We stop at a meadow in bloom between the mountains. We wade into herbs, up to our knees. Sniffing and breathing. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. Adin, dwa, tri, czetyrie.
