Well, we made it. At about 1:15 am we landed at Pafos. As usual i didn’t enjoy the flight very much. The plane wobbled, just to annoy me personally I think, and I don’t like wobbly planes. Luckily the owner of the apartment picked us up at the airport and brought us to our holiday destination. The first day we didn’t do a lot. We went to the supermarket to buy some bread and cheese and I took a lot of photos during the short walk -with my mobile as K had forgotten batteries for the camera ….- of the beautiful flowers growing in the streets. But not only flowers, there was fruit! You can pick your daily need of fruit right from the tree! Which I did.
These colours are truly amazing. That pomegranate! I wanted to pick it but I didn’t dare. I saw flowers I had never seen before, or didn’t remember as I have been on at Cyprus before, and I just couldn’t stop taking photos. It drove K mad as I had to stop every three meters to take a pic. Well, it’s for my blog, I justified.After some lunch we headed to the beach. Oooh, I love the sea. The water was chillier than I expected but after a few seconds it was lovely to swim in that refreshing water. Mind you, the temperature at Paphos was around 30 degrees, it was so hot!I got a bit of company in the water. A Russian boy started talking to me, and in my best Russian I told him I didn’t understand him. Now, that puzzled him as I spoke Russian to him. And so he chatted and chatted …
On the beach I always look for shells and pretty stones. Here I found the tiniest shells ever.
After this day of rest it was time for a cultural excursion. Very close to the apartment we had the archeological park of Pafos.
The colors in the mosaics were amazing. And the details of these tiny stones, o my. A true work of art.
There was this cute cat sitting on one of the ancient mosaics. He posed for us till he got bored.
And at the end of a day there was always some hooky time. Untill I ran out of yarn ….
PS: I wanted to write this blog last week, during our stay in Pafos, but we had no internet what so ever. Only a bit of WiFi in restaurants. I made a lot of notes, but copying down here everything I wrote in my notebook is way too much, sorry. So I hope you’ll do enjoy the blog with more photos than text this time.
