Cyprus, Island of Love

Lately, I have been thinking about Cyprus.

I was in Cyprus 2003. I was there for approximately 4 months (right after getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management) and it was an immersion unlike any other.  I may not have known what I wanted in life, but the experience taught me what I do not want in my life. Let’s just say, I learned about myself in Cyprus.

Cyprus is an amazing country. Its tradition and culture is rich and unsurpassed. The beaches are amazingly pristine. Most especially, history is preserved.  This is what I love about Cyprus. One day, I would like to go back and apricate.

Here are some photos I was able to recover from my “Bermuda Triangle” of a hard drive:
(Oh those topshop denim and pink kickers! They have been with me on my worst!)

I was told that The Goddess of Love, APHRODITE has Asian-like features. I would not actually believe that but if we will base on the enamored look of some Cypriots, I might (just might) believe that.  Ha Ha Ha

Food I will never forget in Cyprus:
KOUPEPIA (spicedblog.com)

greek meatballs called KEFTEDES (recipetineats.com)

Souvlaki (bbc.co.uk)

I resided in Pafos, spent days in Limassol, visited Troodos, Nicosia and Larnaca. Basically, everywhere you go is absolutely amazing as the other. Their churches are phenomenal as well as their monasteries. Their food is sumptuous and in every inch a gastronomic journey.

If I am given another chance to go and visit Cyprus, I will. No questions asked. No batting of eyelashes. In a heartbeat. I will pack my luggage now…
