So after a lovely holiday in Cyprus last year 2010, we decided to return for a 'second helping' LOL!
This time we thought it best to try the island later in the year, as last year was a bit hot. It was still hot, but not so hot that you cant be bothered to do anything!
We took a trip to Famagusta which was once the pearl of Cyprus before the war of 1974. In recent years tourists have been allowed to cross the border into the North. We didnt realise that no other country in the world has recognised Northern Cyprus except Turkey. We found this out whilst we were crossing the border! Part of Famagusta has laid to waste since 1974, and is a ghost city. When the Turks invaded, the citizens had to flee, and left everything behind. This picture is of a hotel which has collapsed. I could only take it thru the coach window, as we were not allowed to disembark, let alone take pictures!
We also took a tour around the ancient Roman city of Salamis. Apparantly the Apostle Paul took Christianity across Cyprus from here - ending in Paphos. This was an amazing venture - I love old architecture, so I was delighted to take a picture of the old amphitheatre.
- Pros:Plenty of Sunshine
- Cons:Expensive because of Eurozone
- In a nutshell:ISLAND OF DREAMS
