I ♥ Cyprus!
Well, we certainly went at the right time of year. Everything was lush and green and awash with wildflowers,...
all the lemon and orange trees were in bloom and smelling marvelous (it seems like every street is lined with them and virtually every garden has one or the other or both),...and it was bright and sunny but not too hot.
We were only there for 8 days so we didn't travel too far afield -
Agia Napa,...Cape Gkreko,... around the towns in the Famagusta District... and a trip up to Salamis in Northern Cyprus.
Our friends said to come back in October - when it should, again, be sunny but not hot - and we'll all go off to the Troodos Mountains, the other side of the island, for a few days.
The people were so nice and friendly, there was hardly any traffic and the food was fantastic (if you're ever in Paralimni, go to Ttappis Tavern!). I told DH if we ever come into money I'm buying a holiday home there. I can't wait to go back. Not sure we can afford another trip this year but I'm saving up!
