Cyprus Photo Diary


Pool of the Alasia Hotel, Limassol
The winding streets of  Oikos Marathasas

The (random!) snow on Torodos Mountains
The Port of Limassol

A town off of Mount Olympus

Cyprus. It was my first time on the island. And it was only a short, sweet weekend trip. But it was really amazing and full of great discoveries.
Discovery #1: the hotel. Alasia Hotel is in the middle of Limassol, and is home to the most incredible spa. 
Discovery #2: The old towns are something I thought only existed on Pinterest (well, not only, but you know...). They are insanely picturesque, so quiet and peaceful. My highlight was exploring them. 
Discovery #3: SNOW (in March). I suppose "snow in March" is quite a normal thing for most people. But as it was only my second time seeing snow, and I packed for a sunny-ish getaway (I was wearing sandals). I thin I should also point out that (due to my footwear choice) that photo was taken from the heated car. 
Discovery #4: Limassol Marina. Very similar to Jaffa Port, the old city is filled with the coolest buildings, surrounding this perfect emerald water. 
Discovery #5: With a name as epic as Mount Olympus, you know it's going to be awesome. It's also stunning - the best views in Cyprus. 


Have you ever been to Cyprus? Tell me about it! xx

  5. i'm from Cyprus and I go back almost every year and i love it there! the life is so much slower and relaxed than over here in London. Limassol is beautiful but so is Larnaca and Paphos :) I know what you mean about Mount Trodos, the snow always seems to be there LOL

    Lovely post!

  8. Haha whaaat, that snow threw me for such a loop! I was like "wut, is this from another trip?" Man there's nothing more disappointing than expecting warmth and getting winter. The place still looks picturesque though, such a beautiful trip!
