Because of this, we would usually spend most of our time with them at their home instead of venturing out and exploring the city. Granted, we would take day trips out to the beach, or take a trip up to my grandfather’s village in the mountains, but that wasn’t very often. It wasn’t until James and I started coming to Cyprus by ourselves that we started to go out and see more of what Limassol has to…

    A Week in Ayia Napa, Cyprus

    Cyprus is an incredibly beautiful island, and we discovered more of the beauty of the island by spending a week in Ayia Napa. In our opinion, Ayia Napa is one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. While you may not have heard of it, Ayia Napa is a beautiful resort destination in Cyprus. It’s also a top beach destination in Europe, but little known to ‘outsiders’.
