Our holiday in Cyprus seems so long ago now, but I still want to share the photos. August is still holiday season after all, and I'm jealous of anyone thats going away any time soon. I'd been to Cyprus when I was 12 with my family, and fell in love with it even then. Dan was as keen as I was, so it was off to the Island of Love with us. The choice was between Mexico for a week, or Cyprus in a 5* hotel for 10 nights. What with the long haul flights and the inability to actually explore in Mexico, it was a no brainer.
Cyprus, or Paphos, to be exact, has changed a lot from what I remember from 12 years ago, (eek), though its still absolutely boiling hot. Its a lot more commercialised although this does mean the coast line has improved, though its all man made. We stayed in the Amathus Beach Hotel which we loved, though it did get too busy at weekends. Cushioned sun beds and a swim up pool bar make all the difference, I realise now. They even had poolside waiters who were happy to bring drinks, and offered frozen flannels throughout the day, (bliss)! They will always be compared to though, for their breakfast spreads. Honestly, I've never seen anything like it, and no hotel will ever, ever come close to Amathus' breakfast. Needless to say, I gained weight on holiday.
I want another holiday now!
Have you been on holiday this year, or are you going?
