From UNESCO listed sites to idyllic beaches to legends of goddesses, Cyprus holidays offer you an eclectic mix of things to see and do. It might be best known for a beach holiday but a distinctive culture means there’s more to the island than that. With a long history, the birthplace of Aphrodite and year round good weather this is a beautiful destination for a family or couples holiday.
Tomorrow I leave for Iceland, the destination that has been at the VERY TOP of my ‘Must visit’ list for ages! I can’t wait, and I just hope the weather works with me for the 10 days I’m wandering about. I hear that it can be quite randomly drastic in Iceland, as far as the weather goes. Iceland is the land of Ice and Fire – sounds like a Game of Thrones book ;-). Speaking of fire, I fully plan to seek out some of those geothermal regions – and I hear there’s a few active volcanos milling about.
The Isle of Skye is truly enchanting and ever inspiring. Of all the places I’ve visited in my life thus far, the Isle of Skye wins for its expansive beauty – for every mile I traveled, I could barely keep my eyes on the road, because another area or another look, would grab my attention. I was more in awe, time and time again, through the three days that I toured the island, than I was in all of Ireland (and it’s maybe 1/10th of the size)!
Camping is something that I’ve rarely ever done in my life. When I was a kid, ‘camping’ meant, my parents taking me and some other family friends out to a designated camp ground, surrounded by people who actually live in their campers. These dismal parks would have a dirty, above-ground pool, with ‘hiking paths’ that were subsequently muddy pits that went in a circle, and there were bathroom hookups and metal fire rings to setup your night’s fire. Let me tell you something, we WERE NOT suffering at all, we had a camper that could sleep 7 comfortably, with its own bathroom, kitchen, and TV area. Ridiculous, I say – shenanigans! That’s not real camping.
I have to say that I’m quite sad that my time in England is so short this year. I have only a few days to pass from Glasgow (after visiting the Highlands of Scotland and the Isle of Skye) to London (where I also only have a few days to revisit from last year) before flying out to Iceland. Because last year, while touring around Ireland and the United Kingdom, I traveled fast as well, going straight from Edinburgh to Liverpool.
