Day 9 Part 4: Aphrodite Hills Resort & Aphrodite’s Rocks at Sunset

After our lunch at Kouklia Village we headed for Aphrodite Hills Resort. This place is huge and has tons of beautiful properties for sale and rent. One of the houses had a Libra sign on it, so I took photos of mum and Annnie in front of it since they are both libras. We also noticed a church on the way and stopped by to take some more photos. The church dates back to the 12th century. After our little tour of the Aphrodite Hills Resort, we enjoyed drinks on the sunset terrace upstairs. I ordered tea for my sore throat, which helped a bit. Our last stop of the day trip was stopping by Aphrodite’s Rocks at sunset to touch the rocks and make a wish. I found a couple of photos of Aphrodite’s Rocks from our earlier pass by stop that were in my camera so I’m adding those below. The sunset later was crazy cool. I made a video of it which is also below. VIDEO: Aphrodite’s Rocks VIDEO: Aphrodite’s Rocks VIDEO: Aphrodite’s Rocks Sunset Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night …

Day 9: Part 2 – Columbia Beach Resort

After Avdimou Bay & Pissouri Bay we stopped by Columbia Beach Resort which is absolutely incredible! It’s so quiet and relaxing here, it’s no wonder tourists come here to relax and enjoy the sunshine and the sea. The first couple of photos below are of apartment rentals on the same street as the resort. The first photos of the resort are the beach access and the water sports, then the little church, the resort grounds, one of the restaurants and the cycling club, and then the swimming pool photos.

Day 9: Part 1 – Avdimou Bay & Pissouri Bay

On Saturday my parents were picking us up and we were going on an all day trip out west. I asked my mum to bring me over a fresh green smoothie so I can get better asap. We started with a quick stop at Avdimou Bay first then we were off to Pissouri Bay. We made little mini videos throughout the day on most of our stops. 🙂 VIDEO: Avdimou Bay VIDEO: Above Pissouri Bay Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R.

Day 7: Walk this Way

On Thursday I suggested we go over to La Isla Beach Club for cocktails and to swim at their pool, but when we go there, they told us the pool was already closed for the season. So we continued walking…We also passed by Guaba Beach Bar & Club which is actually the #13 club in the world. I’ve been wanting to go here ever since I’ve arrived in Cyprus, but never found anyone that wanted to come along. We ended up walking all the way to the Four Seasons Hotel and ended staying at that beach for our swim session. Then later continued walking even further while taking photos along the beach. We took the bus back to the apartment and then got ready for the evening. VIDEO: Four Seasons Hotel Beach Mini Vlog Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R.

Day 6: To the Sea

After our morning breakfast and coffee, we went down to the beach below the apartment and along the coast walked over to the private beach of the Londa Beach Hotel. The beach was very small but very private and pretty. We totally loved the wooden dock in front of the hotel. After the beach we went to the apt to shower and change and then took the bus all the way to Puesta where we had lunch with the Mediterranean views. I don’t even remember what we did on Wednesday night but I think we went back to Apollonia hotel that evening again. Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R.

Day 4: Nissi Beach baby! :)

Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R. Day 2: Part 1: Mediterranean Day 2: Part 2: Molos & Marina Night 2: Breeze 10 Year Anniversary Day + Night 3: Beach, Sushi & Cocktails We woke up early and took a long walk to our bus station that was taking us to the east side of the island. Apparently we stood at the wrong station, but I signaled the bus driver and luckily he stopped for us anyways. This was a good thing, since the next bus was coming 2 hours later. We were taking the intercity bus this time which takes you from 1 town to another and since we were transferring buses to multiple destinations, we got the all day pass for €15. For the next 90 minutes we were chilling in the back seats of the bus. When we got to Larnaca, we made a quick video and changed buses and headed for Agia Napa.

BARCELONA – It wasn’t LOVE at first sight…

Unlike Rome & Porto, Barcelona wasn’t actually instant love for me. Let me explain… For years now, people have been going on about Barcelona to me & just how amazing the city is. “You will love Barcelona“, “You belong in Barcelona“, “I see you in Barcelona”…. Finally, I had an opportunity to visit the city & I was super excited & entirely filled with so many expectations from what I’ve heard from friends & read on Travel Blogs. But you know what happened when I got there instead? I was waiting for the love to kick in & I didn’t feel much of anything at first… Because I was scheduled to see specific things via tours, there wasn’t any free time to wander around the city freely on my own. After a few days, I decided that Barcelona was all right, but I wasn’t fully impressed yet. All the obvious things I already knew about the city were there, the beautiful architecture, incredible beaches, delicious food…. but I was searching for a deeper connection. So the …

Wellbeing Wednesdays

Hey guys! I hope you are having a great week in your part of the world. If you missed the previous 2 Wellbeing Wednesdays posts you can find them below:   Let’s get right to it! It’s getting hotter over here on the island. Highs are now around 34-38+ C (93-100+ F) & the humidity has most definitely risen too. I know because, I am just finding out how much sweat my face can actually produce. I am pretty sure, this is healthy.  So far, I’m loving the weather. ☀ ☀ ☀ Every day is super sunny & I am pretty sure this powerful sun could make the most miserable person smile! 🙂 –> 10 Healing Benefits of the Sun Workout Hours: Probably around 5+ hours of mostly cardio this week. Because of the workout increase which is burning more calories, I’ve been eating more too. I have just realized that I’ve been eating mostly vegan food this summer, probably about 95% of the time. Which is pretty awesome! I think more than 50% of the food I’ve been eating …

Wellbeing Wednesdays

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week wherever you are in the World! I would love to hear where you are and what the weather is like in your current location so please feel free to post your replies below in the comment section. I am currently in Limassol, Cyprus which also happens to be my favorite city on the island! I will go into why in another upcoming blog post. Below is what the weather looked like right here at 2pm. August is the hottest month on the island and for this reason, it’s very common for locals to take an entire month of August off for vacation. We were promised a mild summer this year, and I hope I’m not speaking too soon on the matter, but so far so great! We had 2 heatwaves here so far, one in June and one yesterday that started early on Monday. The highs for the past 2 days were about 38-39C here in Limassol which is definitely a lot, but it didn’t feel crazy hot …
