The last three weeks, we’ve been relaxing on the warm island of Cyprus. Cyprus is a country located on the Eastern side of the Mediterranean with heavy Greek and Turkish influences. Essentially, there are two states in the tiny country, and I haven’t yet come to fully understand the boundaries of them.
Anyways, our house is right near a Cypriot national park called Cape Greco. We are right on the water, with good hikes all around us. There is a nice beach about a 3 minutes drive away from us (well, it would be nice if there weren’t a bunch of unnecessarily placed poles sticking out of the ground across almost all of it), where we can take our rented paddleboard and/or hike right over a little hill.
We have a pool that was supposed to be good and heated. If I have to wait 5 days for it to heat up 2 degrees, and it being 60 degrees when we got here, I wouldn’t consider it very heated.
We have gone on two hikes, one was a fail and we only walked about a mile before Kaitlyn’s tummy started acting up again. She hasn’t been feeling well in her stomach lately, so we’re testing to see if she’s lactose intolerant. She hasn’t been handling this very well because yogurt with honey is her favorite thing in the world. Also, not being able to eat grilled cheese sandwiches is an added disadvantage. If the milk test doesn’t work, we will move on to eggs, wheat and so on.
The other hike was good until Kailyn fell and Liam said his stomach was hurting too. We managed to power through and finish the walk with only one minor injury and a faker while seeing some awesome sights.
Overall, I think we’ve had a pretty good time here, after being in Romania for two weeks. Most days, it’s been warm and sunny, with a few being cloudy, rainy and almost always windy. Although I’m looking forward to getting out of here to go to Spain, I definitely think it’s one of the nicest places we have been.
