    Paphos: Klöster, Königsgräber, Strand

    July 5 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Der erste Tag in Paphos war kultur- und sonnenreich. Ich habe die Agios Neophytos Monastery, den Coral Bay und die Königsgräber besucht. An jeder Landstraße warten kleine Obsthändler, mit leckerem Obst 😋Read more

    Paphos Afternoon

    January 30, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Had a bit of crazy weather as we moved from Kourion to Aphrodite's Rock outside of Paphos. The skies darkened. We'd heard the prediction of rain, and rain it did, along with some lightning. The only thing we could do was cross our fingers that the weather would dry out quickly before our next destination. What looked like wet snow on the window was not promising, but it did clear up soon enough.

    We pulled over on the road by some cliffs overlooking the beach where Aphrodite's Rock was located. Depending on which legend you hear, you'll find different reasons to swim out to and around Aphrodite's Rock. One version has to do with love while another of course is youth and beauty. You could also find true love, supposedly, if you find a heart shaped pebble on the beach. I'm admittedly guilty of picking up a few pebbles here, one sort of heart shaped, but nothing like what a fellow traveler found. Got too distracted at one point on the beach and didn't make it further along. Oops...perhaps I shall return here on a previous trip.

    The city of Paphos is the smallest on Cyprus I believe. Now that I'm here, I'm really glad I decided to make Limassol my base instead of Paphos and flying out from here. There's a few sights to see like the Saint Solomoni catacombs where she was first imprisoned for her faith, the tortured and killed. There's a large tree as well with numerous ribbons of cloth tied here. The ribbons represent prayers and hope for a cure for those who are ill. One person even tied on baby shoes.

    Onwards to St Paul's Pillar where the apostle was flogged, it's near a site with ruins of past churches, although a small one still stands today. Perhaps the biggest highlight of Paphos was the Archaeological Park. Filled not only with ruins, but also some stunning mosaics remaining from earlier times. The House of Dionysos is supposed to contain the best, but I think the best one is located at the House of Theseus. It's definitely worth exploring here for an hour or two.

    Time flew and we had to leave before we could see more of Paphos. I'm glad I took this tour as it helped make it an easy and focused day, not to mentioned a few sites like Aphrodite's Rock that would've been challenging to get to on my own.

    Malo nam dnes prsat. Neverili sme tomu, tak sme sa vybrali objavovat najcennejsie archeologicke vykopavky Cypru. Hned jak sme dorazili k archeologickemu arealu, zacalo liat. A lialo tak, ze sme teda ako spravni europania isli shoppingovat. Za par hodin nakupene, sak boli Vianoce. Prsat medzitym prestalo. Vratili sme sa k archeologickemu vyzitiu. Asi po 30 minutach sme si povedali, ze keby takuto historiu vykopali v Nemecku, chodili by sme tam po dlazdenom chodniku a vsetky artefakty by boli ukryte pod strechou. Ale tu sme chodili po kaluziach a na tie vsetky stopy minulosti prsalo a ludia po nich dupali. Co uz, aspon vieme, ze cerpanie EU penazi aj tu funguje podobne, ako to dobre pozname z domoviny. Videli sme tu nadherne rucne robene mozaiky z 2-3 storocia a dejiny ako z knihy historie. Staroveki greci, rimania, kriziacke vypravy, benatcania atd..Mohol by som pokracovat novymi dejinami az po 2.sv. vojnu. Boli tu odjakziva v centre svetoveho diania a su nato pomerne pysni.
    Po hodinach chodenia prisla konecne burka, ktoru nam predpovedali. Prsalo mocne, az potoky cervenej zeminy, na ktorej sa tu rodi uzasne vino stekali do mora. My sme samozrejme uz pozorovali dazd cez vinne pohare 🥂.

    December 28, 2018 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Hned z rana rychla ranajka a utekame k autu a vyrazamme k poloostrovu Akamas - nazapadnejsi cip. Cestou sme isli dlhou dolinou, ktoru lemovali pomarancovniky, mandarinovniky a pomelovniky. Nedalo nam a zastavili sme pri jednom pomarancovom sade. Od domacej si pytame dzus. S usmevom nam kazdemu natlaci 0,5l cerstvej stavy za drobne. Pokracujeme dalej. Je tu narodny park, nedotknuta priroda, cesty len pre terenne auta a podla legiend tu zila Afrodita. Ako prvu zastavku zvolime prirodny vodopad v ktorom sa udajne kupala Afrodita a nasledujeme legendu s tym, ze po kazdom kupleli isla hore na kopec pod velky dub, kde oddychovala. Prisaham, ze ked tuto turu davala zakazdym, tak lytka musela mat ako Herkules. Ked sme dorazili k naozaj staremu dubu ako z Games of Thrones, zistili sme, ze sa tunak stretavala s Adonisom. Ts ts, taketo veci. Krasne to vyhlady, boli sme az 300mnm doslova a pozorovali ludi, ako sa kupu na plazach pod nami. Slnko pieklo a my sme sa uz tesili, ako si dame cestou domov cerstve pomarance.Read more

    December 29, 2018 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Hned po ranajkach nasadame do auta a vyrazame smer ako vcera, ale pod zapadny cip do kanonu Avakas Gorge. Cim sa blizime cesta sa zhorsuje, az stracame asfalt a prichadza kamen a hlina. Uz, uz sme tam a pred koncom nas zaskoci brod cez rieku. Dumkame, sme rohodnuti nechat auto pred brodom, ale zrazu ide domaca pani na Hyundai Atos, ktora prejde cez 25cm prud vody, ako keby bola na 4WD. Nenechal som za zahanbit a rozbieham Mazdu 2. Voda spliachala stranami. A som na druhom brehu. Dominika to nestihla ani zdokumentovat. Vystartovali sme do kanonu proti prudu. Zase skaceme z jedneho kamena na druhy a z jednaj strany potoka na druhu. Topanky zamocene len troska, lutujeme nepripravenych turistov v teniskoch a slapkoch. Krasne to tu je, skoro ako v kanone Antelope v rezervacii Navaho. Ale tam sme este neboli 😉.Read more

    December 30, 2018 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Slnko hned z rana pecie. Nasa prva zastavka su Hrobky kralov. Je to cintorin plny rucne vytesanych hrobov do kamena, ale paradoxne nie pre kralo, ale pre bohatych mestanov a uradnikov. Pochovavalo sa tu takto dlhe storocia za Grekov, Rimanov, Rannych krestanov. Je to otvoreny areal pri pobrezi bez pristreskov, v lete tu musia turisti odpadavat od tepla. Cestou naspat do mesta sa D rozhodla, ze bude soferovat. 3min na parkovisku natrenovala automaticku prevodovku a vyrazili sme do ulic. Paradne dosoferovala az do hotela a uznala, ze toto soferovanie v lavo je len pre blaznov.
    PS.: prednost z lava stale nevieme, ci sa tu uznava!
    Na hoteli sme este vyuzili silne slnecne luce pri bazene.

    Die Umgebung erkunden

    October 4, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Hier haben wir uns auf den Weg gemacht, um einen Cache zu suchen.
    In unmittelbarer Nähe befindet sich das Schiffswrack der Demetrius II. Sie ist am 23. März 1998 an dieser Stelle auf Grund gelaufen und liegt immer noch dort.Read more

    Der beste Viewpoint

    October 5, 2019 in Cyprus ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    In der Nähe von Neo Chorio gab's dann den Cache mit der besten Aussicht. Allerdings müssten wir dafür auch ca. 3 km ein Weg zu Fuß laufen und dabei ca. 350 Höhenmeter überwinden. Hört sich jetzt zwar nicht wirklich viel an, aber wenn die Sonne von oben gnadenlos brennt, ist das schon ne Leistung.Read more
