G and I recently took a week off to take a break in Cyprus. We usually start our holidays with a donut tradition at the airport. So indulgent!
There was a heatwave for the entire week with temperatures hitting 42 degrees some days!
This pink flower is everywhere and I see it every time we visit Cyprus.
We relaxed, ate plenty of amazing food and took bike rides along the seafront.
There are a whole ton of cats in Cyprus and they are super friendly.
We visited the handmade markets and found some wonderful art shops filled with work from local artists.
Macramé bracelets were very popular at the market!
I usually pick up some handmade lace at the markets.
Some of the pieces are so intricate and beautiful.
The pretty lace is surrounded by handmade leather sandals, olive oil soaps and herbs.
I also couldn’t resist these handmade pom pom slippers! I will save them for the winter.
The benefits of a heatwave – amazing beach sunsets.
We had a great time and relaxed as much as we could. I’m already planning out next break for 2015 – I’m desperate to go to Disney! Let me know where you are taking your summer holidays this year in the comments below.
