Surprising met

Author: Dimitry Paranyushkin (on 21 Aug 2009)


When we got to what we call "almost the end of the world" - Svyatoy Nos peninsula, we trekked into Korbulik village, which is a strenuous 2-hour walk up and down through the hills
. We got there and thought "ouff, now we really made it quite far". To our surprise we saw a little tented put just next to the lake, came closer and met two guys who were cooking their evening meal. They turned out to be Austrians. I don't know how they managed to get there by themselves, they said they just looked at a map and it seemed like a nice place. They were a great company for 4 days we spend after with them. On the photo, they are riding on a back seat of a boat, and Celine is in the middle (I'm taking a picture from above).
