A Postcard from Cyprus

We took our summer holidays late this year (due to work commitments) and chose to revisit Cyprus as we always enjoy our time there.

A week in the sun was just what G and I needed. Here are a few snaps and thoughts on our trip.

Our home for the week…the flowers were incredible and the smell hit you as you walked around the resort.

I tried scuba diving in a swimming pool because I am a massive wimp in the sea.

I took some crafts with me and made progress on my crochet jumper from Simply Crochet issue 9.

And I had to get some traditional lace which is “made by old ladies in the mountains” as the seller informed me. If I had more luggage allowance, I would have packed my case full of linens and embroidery, it was so pretty.

I am relaxed and full of energy, let’s hope it lasts.

Things I learned from this holiday:

  • Sea sickness is horrendous, even if you do see Dolphins
  • It’s a small world – seeing a friend from Cambridge City WI was brilliant
  • All you can eat Cypriot food is dangerously amazing
  • Scuba diving is much less frightening in a swimming pool
  • Aqua aerobics is a whole lot of fun
  • Migraine meds help me sleep through turbulence on a plane
  • Crochet creates a talking point and you never know who you will meet (Canadian upcycling hippie who told us tales of her life)
  • A Shirley Temple is my new favourite virgin cocktail
  • Cats are amazing in any country
  • I love Baklava
  • BIG BLACK SNAKES ARE SCARY

I hope you enjoyed my lovely guest bloggers in the meantime! If you missed them you can check out Miss Jojangles and Erica from Caught on a Whim via these links.

Toodles!

  1. I know what you mean about diving! I practised in a pool for ages before I could get out in the sea. And even now, I’ve done the “taster session” about 3 times now – most people would have just taken the test already!
