After an arduous and historic trip from Baku, Azerbaijan, to Ankara, and Antalya Turkey, I finally arrived in the mythical island of Cyprus!
I flew from Antalya, Turkey to Nicosia, Cyprus. During this time, you learn that at one point, Cyprus was completely Greek, but the northern part was taken over by Turkey with the pretext of protecting the local Turkish population from repression.
Ultimately, this was a pretext for Turkey to invade Cyprus, but the reason was most likely the oil in the area.
Luckily, most days in Cyprus were warm at the least, and cool in the shadows, and cold at night.
This would be a great place to unwind and disconnect, although this could be impossible if you are still connected to the internet.
Limassol wasn’t super busy at the time and a bit decrepit due to their recent bankruptcy, which gave it a more relaxed atmosphere and vibe.
Ultimately, Cyprus was a blast, with its wide nature, and very rural feel to it, while in not too dense in the cities themselves.Details
