Winter Wanderings, Cyprus

Last year I said I’m not spending another Christmas in Cyprus, but December sneaked up on me and the look at flight prices gave me a little heart attack.

So instead, I came up with a little plan to fly my mum and sister over here for Christmas, in an effort to make the time off work more special and spend time with family.

In pursuit of all things Christmasy, we ventured to Limassol to check the Winter Wonderland and stopped en route for some stunning views. Limassol was dressed for the occasion, with the Marina and surrounding coastline beautifully decorated.

There were huge Christmas trees nearly on every corner and a few Christmas stalls here and there. Unfortunately, the Winter Wonderland didn’t live up to its name, but spending time by the seaside, with sunny 20C in December was not a bad deal.

We had a delicious lunch at the Fish Market in Limassol Marina, followed by a quick stroll around the promenade. Limassol is wonderful at the time of the year, festive without the need for the usual winter misery. And a welcome break from the four walls of my house.

This was probably also the last of the sunny warm days, few days after that the temperatures plummeted and the grey skies took over the usually blue hues.

On the way back to Paphos, we took the picturesque B6 instead of the usual highway route (A6), to admire some of the new installations close to Petra to Romiou and few other sights along the way.

Perfectly timed for sunset and farewell to the sunny days (not for long!).

PS: This is the last blog post for this year, so I wanted to wish you lots of happiness, joy and personal fullilment in the New Year!

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.

Thank you for following along on my journey.
