Leaving for Lemesos

In just a few days I'll be heading to the beautiful, eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus.
I've got the Lonely Planet Guide to read on the plane.
The SP has found us a beautiful place to stay.

Columbia Beach Resort, Pissouri Bay, Cyprus

Paris and Andreas from Discover Cyprus 
have put together a wonderful private tour for us.
We'll visit small private vineyards.
Immerse ourselves in the history of it's ancient kingdoms.
Marvel at Aphrodite's birthplace and the Temple of Apollo.
Dine on meze and other delicious Cypriot dishes.

Breakfast al fresco in February,
Soak up the sun and relax.

  7. Have a great time, Maggie! Thank you for letting me know when you will and won't be able to host Mr. Badger. I think his journey will continue in the UK until you're ready for him.
    Soak up lots of beautiful sunshine, friend!

  8. Good Morning, Cypress looks like it will be a fun place to relax. The sun makes it feel so warm. It would be much better then the cold winter weather. More Snow. Ugh. I hope you post pictures of your trip. Enjoy. Shirley@shirleystitches

  12. Sounds fabulous Maggie - have a wonderful time soaking up the sunshine and warmth!
    A new cafe/bakery just opened here and the owner is from Cypress. She said her mother ran a restaurant there for years - she herself grew up in the kitchen. Tomorrow we are taking our daughter there for lunch to celebrate her birthday - freshly baked Spanokopita followed by her special almond cake sounds delicious I'm thinking!!

    Bon voyage - look forward to hearing all about it as I've not visit there.
    Hugs - Mary

  13. Oh that place looks lovely. Can't wait to see what pictures you bring back for Holiday.

  15. Oh how fabulous - wishing you a wonderful holiday!

  16. Sounds like a lovely trip. It's so grey and gloomy here that a sunshine vacation would be delightful. Have a great time and safe travels.

  17. I want to go !! Your holiday sounds really good, I haven't been there. Have been to Sicily, Rhodes, and Patmos.
    MacDonald's coffee has been changed to a gourmet type and is really good. Plus, for me being 65+ mine is 35 or 50 cents depending on where I stop. And refills are free for both prices.

  18. I'd LOVE to be leaving with you. ;)

  19. Ohhh enjoy your stay there!! It's such a beautiful island, I've been visiting there years ago in early spring and loved it! Lots of mimosa we saw there, so beautiful. Wishing you a beautiful stay! By the way, I'm following your blog through bloglovin, because I can't follow through google friend connect anymore, seems I already reached the maximum amount of blogs one can follow there.

  20. Hope you are enjoying your vacation! Sounds wonderful!!


Thanks for stopping by, your visit just made my day!
