    Kyrenia

    September 3, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Day one up and ready - flying via Vienna might add another three hours to the journey but its at least £150 cheaper on the flight
    Not really impressed by Vienna stopover only a couple of bars limited things to do. Think next time I may go via IstanbulRead more

    Kyrenia castle

    September 28, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Really good walk round the castle - didn't think it would take so long to get round - well worth a visit, and it boasts a room with the oldest ever ship in it!

  • Day3

    Salamis

    September 30, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Salamis could be an amazing site but unless you go forearmed with information you will simply stare and be amazed whilst you wonder why such archaeology is left virtually abandoned

  • Day7

    St hilarion castle

    October 4, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Wow I think the last time I climbed so many steps was when I visited the treasury in Petra, and believe it or not it is hotter in Cyprus than when I visited petra!

    That aside what a fairy tale setting this is - aparrently it inspired Walt Disney for his snow white setting.

    Absolutely gorgeous, three differing castles in one but I have to wonder about having royal apartments over 700 metres up a rocky route that even a mountain goat would struggle with.

    It really does make you wonder at the fitness and agility of those that built this into the mountain - even more so when you visit the stable how on earth people managed to get things that high up a mountain. Is beyond belief!
