  • Cyprus's Great Divide Day after day the aquamarine seas meld seamlessly into the clear blue sky and we bask in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun. But Cyprus is an enigma in so many ways. It is an historic Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Nov 23, 2016
  • Adrift in the Eastern MediterraneanDespite numerous pleas for us to return home to British Columbia to help build an ark we've decided to put up with the relentless sun on the beaches of Cyprus for another week.

  • Exploring PaphosWe left Polis quite early for the 40 km drive back towards Paphos. Although we were unlucky with our accommodation choice and the weather we would probably return to Polis at a warmer time of year as the town and Posted by RoyandIngrid in Carry On Travelling... | Mar 7, 2016
  • Polis BeachesAnother bright but slightly cooler day saw us deciding to have a beach day, first stopping at the supermarket for lunch bits.

  • Polis and the Akames PeninsulaAfter a dreadful nights sleep the first thing we did the next day was ask exactly how it was a luxury room, to be told 'oh no its not but there is an electricity problem in the room we booked'. Posted by RoyandIngrid in Carry On Travelling... | Mar 7, 2016

  • Limassol and the Troodos MountainsWe woke to a lovely morning which we spent by the pool in the sun before driving via the motorway to the far side of Limassol then driving back along the coast.

  • The Ruins at KourionWe couldn't visit this part of Cyprus without looking at some of the Greek/Roman ruins nearby. Our first stop was at the Sanctuary of Apollo Ylatis, not too spectacular but pleasant in the warm sun. Then we stopped briefly at Posted by RoyandIngrid in Carry On Travelling... | Mar 4, 2016

  • Running around Boarders: CyprusThe boarder between Lebanon and Israel is closed. This means, despite seeing Israel from Lebanon twice, no one is allowed to cross between the countries directly by land, air, or sea. Essentially, they pretend the other doesn't exist.

  • The Long and Winding Road"They" say patience is a virtue. After today, I tend to believe them. Our day started with another Cypriot version of an English breakfast. Not bad, but I'm not really a fan of fried eggs. Add to that Posted by Jengt in Jenny sees the World | Apr 2, 2014
