My other half has not been to Cyprus before but I spent a few months there in my youth, 1997 to be exact, with my best pal, and it holds good memories. But yes we were young and we were looking for the cheapest place for a Long Island Ice Tea and then the closest place to lay our heads!...however I have not forgotten how beautiful the island is. Now my priorities have changed for my holiday planning (well not that much, some good house wine and a short stroll to bed are still at the top of the list) I start to look more at what else the location offers now we have kids as they will obviously not want to stay in one place every day! To be honest as much as we need a rest, we too want to have the option to explore or we would be bored too.
There's also some food items in Cyprus I would love to stock up on including honey which is great value there and also olive oil, did you know a healthy mature olive tree can produce around 70 litres of oil?! Well there you go. I have read that a great factory to seek out for olive oil is here. Also I would love to see where they make the lace the island is famous for, I hear that Lefkara village near Larnaca is famously a great place to visit to see it being made first hand. Would love to find the time to see the traditional craftmakers at work.
OK, all this talk is encouraging me further to get on and book something. It was a joy to see my little ones happy as can be on the beach in the sunshine last week, can't wait to do that again. Hmmm how many sleeps?
