I'm back from Cyprus but of course, you would never know because I somehow managed to avoid getting a tan.

I loved Cyprus, despite parts of it being overrun with tourists. It's very strange to fly almost 5 hours to a foreign country where many restaurants advertise a "full English breakfast". Where the British once invaded countries and proclaimed them in the name of the Empire, British imperialism is now evident in the mass resorts catered for English tourists. Nevertheless, it's a gorgeous wee island brimming with history and lovely people.

Anyway, I'm too lazy/ tired to recount my trip just now but here is a run down of where we went:

-Pafos
- Lefkosia
- Akamas Peninsula
- North Nicosia (Northern Cyprus - a.k.a. Occupied territory by Turkey)
