Beautiful coast with lots to see and do. We went to the Mosaics (again students are free) and wandered around Paphos (AKA Pafos). We didn't do a boat tour but there are regular tours everyday from a lot of boats. Got a free Segway ride for a couple minutes.
Same day as the camel park, we drove into the mountains. We took the scenic route and got lost in some villages but ultimately made it to the silver village of Pano Leftkara. They handmake silver necklaces and lace gifts. Prices can be bargained. They are all very persuasive to get you into their stores. Learn to say no here, cus you'll use it a lot. There is no simple wandering in these villages, they want tourists and love to talk.
Hung out at the beach for a nice relaxing day.
Cyprus villiage. These are the photos of the original inhabitants of the villiage. Taken in 19th century
Nice wine village in the mountains. Lots of handmade souvenirs like bracelets and glass. Good food, lots of churches and small roads to explore.
Standing tall amongst the Limassol Ranges are the Troodos Mountains. At the heart of the island of saints, culture and beauty- Cyprus is a region which has abundance to offer to a traveller like me. As I set foot in the south-east of this region, backpacking around Troodos, I discovered the unique picturesque scenery that surrounded these mountains. Exploring its much talked about dense forests and mines, I further delved my footsteps into the valleys encompassing beautiful vineyards and scenic panoramas. While I could clearly see how the Troodos valley was truly meant for all seasons, what amazed me the most were cultural treasure of the place. The archaic remains and monastery of kykkos, amongst other mountain views, added to the beauty that lay around and beyond Troodos. And my trip to Troodos came to a perfect end as I walked in serenity on the cobbled streets arched with blossoming orchards.
