Cyprus Off-Season

When I was in Lebanon a few years ago I was surprised how close I was to Cyprus.  Had I  done my research I would have visited at that time.  As I love Mediterranean food and climate I decided to add it to my list of new countries this year.  Again, my research failed me as I knew it was off-season but did not expect snow!



I booked 5 nights in Larnaca giving me 4 days to explore the island.  Using miles I stayed at a delightful hotel called the Ciao Stelio featuring comfortable rooms and a great restaurant with access to a huge gym.



Unfortunately some of my planned excursions were not available due to limited spaces during the off-season.  I was able to secure a spot on the “discovery of the island” tour, a 10 hour journey with an English-speaking guide.  Interestingly I was the only one of 60 who spoke English as my native tongue even though the majority of tourists are from one of 3  countries: Britain, Russia or Israel.

Upon my safe return home I read that a serial killer who had targeted foreign women was apprehended while I was there. Whew!
