There is something so charming about all sea towns and Limassol is no exception especially when one is enjoying the sights with friends from far away. Strolling around one sees fabulous beaches and many bikers. Both ports – the old and the new one – are bursting with ships and yachts.

Crossing Cyprus from south to north is easy, so is crossing it from east to west. The water all around the island is spectacular but so are the Troodos mountains. A weekend camping out there is cool – pun is intended.

Amélie Nothomb’s “Barbe Bleue” – an exciting story between Don Elemirio – a Spanish nobleman who lives lavishly in the heart of Paris and Saturnine – a young woman looking for a place to rent.
