I have friend who lives there and wanted to go for years, but never made it, but this year it was her 50th birthday and I had the opportunity to visit and spend time with her family and children, which was a pleasure.

Cyprus Drives Vavatsinia to Agoi Vavatsinia

Leaving Limassol on the road to Nicosia, about half way there is a turning by the Mcdonalds that leads to the village of Lefkara, then goes on to Vavatsinia. After that, the road to Agoi Vavatsinia is a narrow windy road, perfect for a high speed video.

This was taken using a GoPro mounted with a high strength suction mount at the very front of the bonnet, giving an uninterrupted view. I then edited the footage and increased the speed by 400%, creating the exciting an dramatic video.

The Journey from hell!

ON the 1st of March, I was due to fly from Birmingham to Larnaca, but there was snow, so getting to the airport was going to be tricky. I got to the Railway station in Northampton in good time, but the train was cancelled. The next train arrived half an hour later, it pulled away slowly then stopped half a mile out of Northampton for about 20 minutes, then proceeded at about 5MPH.

A few images from a short trip to Amsterdam, which has a unique character of its own. It was actually freezing cold, but sightseeing was still a joy.

Venice

 

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.

I stayed at Cà Due Leoni, Sestiere Cannaregio 565, Venice. A beautiful family run hotel, not far from the Bus/Train station.

Cape Greco & Sea Caves

Cape Greco, also known as Cavo Greco (Italian for "Greek cape"; Greek: Κάβο Γκρέκο) and Poyraz Burnu in Turkish, is a headland in the southeastern part of the island of Cyprus. It is at the southern end of Famagusta Bay and forms part of Ayia Napa Municipality.

It lies between the towns of Ayia Napa and Protaras, both of which are popular tourist resorts. It is frequently visited by many tourists for its natural beauty. It is a protected nature park. From the high points on the cliff that rests at the cape one can view amazing sights out to sea.

According to local legend, it is also the home of the 'Ayia Napa sea monster'.

Cape Greco is a National Forest Park with unique flora and fauna and is under the administration of the Forestry Department of the Cyprus Ministry of the Interior.

There are many caves along the coastline from Agia Napa to Cape Greko National Park. Many people come here to snorkel and the locals come here before the crack of dawn to fish. The Palace caves and the Smugglers caves are deep passages in to the cliffs which are only accessible from the sea. Some extend as deep as 240 feet in to the rock.

During calm seas and at low tide it is possible to swim and even walk in to most of them. Although they have a rock-strewn environment the waters are wonderfully clear. Boat trips regularly pass by daily. There are spots of deep water amongst the rocks where spirited folks engage in the extreme sports of cliff diving/jumping
