Restart za telo i dušu

 

U okolini Alanje, tačnije dolini Dim, nalazi se ova reka. Do nje lako stižete gradskim prevozom za svega 20ak minuta od centra. Čime je ovo mesto zaslužilo poseban post?

Vrelo jutro u Alanji. Prošlo je već 15 dana od kad smo došli, i mahom smo obišli sve što nas je zanimalo. Ostalo je još 8 dana do kraja našeg odmora, pa smo odlučili da odemo i vidimo ovu reku. Nismo mnogo očekivali ali, ruku na srce, nismo se nešto ni informisali. Krenuli smo gradskim prevozom. Krivine, serpetine, levo desno, urbana Alanja ostala je iza nas. Ono što nas je okruživalo nije odavalo nikakav vao utisak. Odlučili smo da izađemo otprilike, pa šta nam Bog da. A onda…

Prišli smo ogradi i pogledali dole. Neko vreme smo samo ćutali. Ne, nije prizor bio taj koji nam je oduzeo moć govora. Bila je to naša volja jer nismo hteli da poremetimo mir, tišinu i spokoj oko nas. Da. Bilo je tiho, čula se samo reka i osetio se miris šume. Kakvo olakšanje. Posle 15 dana gužve, saobraćaja, glasne muzike i još glasnijih prodavaca, ovo je bilo baš ono što nam je trebalo.
Sišli smo dole do same reke i videli rukom ispisanu tablu: Turkish Coffe. Odlično. Konobar nas je poveo do separea. Separe u bukvalnom smislu te reči. Dakle, konobar privuče ka obali separe koji je bio na sred reke, vi uđete, smestite se i on vas pusti. Nalazili smo se na sred hladne reke, ljuljali se na talasima i pili tursku kafu. Kako nam kafa jeste jedna od najvećih ljubavi (posle putovanja, naravno), naš odmor je bio kompletan. Ta kafa je bila nešto posebno. Brčkali smo noge i uživali.

Potom smo prošetali uzvodno i videli da obližnji restorani nude mogućnost da sami ulovite ribu koju vam oni potom spreme u restoranu. Ostali smo nekoliko sati, i vratili se na put. Nismo videli stanicu za autobus, ali su nam objasnili da dignemo ruku ako ga vidimo i da će on stati. Tako je i bilo. Ruka gore. Bus staje. I za pola sata smo se ponovo našli na vreloj plavoj plaži.

Vratili smo se nazad u gužvu i buku, ali smo deo tog mira poneli sa sobom.

Prelepo iskustvo!

Dim river

Body and soul restart

 

This fantastic river is in the vicinity of Alanya (Dim Valley). You can easily arrive with public transport (only 20 minutes from the center). Why this place deserves special post?

Wellhead morning in Alanya. It’s been 15th day since we got here, and mostly we visited everything we were interested to. There still remains a 8 days to the end of our vacation, so we decided to go to see this river. We did not expect much but, frankly, we didn’t  even try to find some info before trip. We took public transportation. Curvature, serpetine, left, right, urban Alanya stayed behind us. What we were surrounded did not leave any WOW impression. We decided to go out random .. And then …

We came to the fence and looked down. For a while we just kept quiet. No, not because the scene wich has take away  power of speech. It was our will because we did not want to disrupt the peace, and serenity around us. Yes. It was quiet, we heard only the river and the felt the smell of forest. What a relief. After 15 days with lots of crowds, traffic, loud music and louder sellers, this was exactly what we needed.

We went down to the bottom of the river and saw the handwritten sign: Turkish Coffee. Great. The waiter took us to the floating seat. So the waiter pulled ashore booth that was in the center of the river, we jumped in, and he let us go. We were in the middle of the cold river, rocked on the waves and drinking Turkish coffee Coffee is something special for us, one of the greatest love (after the trip, of course), our vacation was complete.  That coffe was something awesome.

Then we walked upstream. We saw that nearby restaurants offer to visitors to catch the fish, and than they can serve and prepare it for you in the restaurant. We stayed a few hours and return to the path. We did not see the bus station, but some people explained to us to raise our hands if we see the bus and that he would stop. And that how it was. Hands up. Bus stops. And a half hour later we were on hot blue beach again.

We went back into the crowd and the noise, but we take that part of that peace with us.

Beautiful experience!
