Red Hot Holiday

8 July 2014

So here it is, the reason I have been away from here for so long, holiday time! My friend Danielle and I decided only a few weeks ago to book a last minute getaway, and headed for Paphos, Cyprus. We stayed at the Avanti Hotel and I cannot recommend the place enough! We checked in at around 2am Paphos time (bleak o'clock) which is midnight over here and were randomly given a disabled room - we didn't care it was huge...though we decided against using the chair in the shower. With a  quick meeting in the morning with our Thomson rep we were away to enjoy our holiday.

Over the week we visited Coral Bay - a very pretty and very hot beach, Tomb of the Kings - a beautiful historical site on the island, Petra tou Romiou - also known as Aprhrodite's Rock and lounged poolside in the 40 degree heat - yep, I'm peeling already. Every night we had cocktails at the hotel (starting from €3.50 it would be rude not to really) then took a short trip on the bus - they came every ten minutes and were a hell of a lot nicer than ours here - heading for dinner at the harbour.

I had such a lovely time but now it's back to reality and back to the blogging game, if you are thinking about Cyprus and in particular Paphos shoot any questions you have my way. Hope you enjoyed this little snippet of my hol!
