After battling the snow, ice, mud and injuries (caused by said challenges) through Hungary, I came to the realization that trying to traverse Serbia in the middle of Winter was a bit more than I could chew. My late start has caught up to me, which was not completely unexpected. I decided to stop at the Hungary-Serbia border and fly to Cyprus to continue walking. I will walk across Cyprus from East to West, and start walking back towards Serbia, reversing course.
While I had glorious plans to finish at the ocean in Cyprus, I am willing to change those plans in the name of self-preservation.
I am flying to Cyprus today, and will start walking in the next few days, once I acclimatize to the new surroundings. I still owe you reports on the rest of Hungary (Putnok to Nyirbator, and Nyirbator to the border), which I will try to post soon. I have space left in my Hungary photo album, so I will be adding Cyprus to that album in Google Photos.
At this stage, I have walked 6115km (3800mi). Please continue to follow as the journey continues in Cyprus!
