Ayia Napa

WARNING ! You’re gonna find it pretty hard to leave this fantasy to go back to reality …

Anyone who knows Napa, knows, that ‘full of youths’ stigma is just a load of media hype and no different from any other top resort! Fact is, it’s so versatile…

Indian

Indian is probably my favourite cuisine and I'm happy with the selection here ...

Parko Paliatso Luna Park, Ayia Napa

I love this place, the sounds of gears and links chinking, smothered by fair ground music, the smell of candy floss and bbq corn on the cob, the multi coloured lights and occasional girly screams. It's really cool idea coz you just buy a Wrist Band depending on your ages and what you want to do!

Camel Park, Mazotos, Larnaca

It's a lovely idea for a different day out. What I really like about The Camel Park is it’s diversity, as there’s always something new to see every time you go. With such a lot of animals, there’s often a few babies around including iccle Camels, ranging from as little as 2 weeks old … they are just delightful! You can choose to stroll around at your leisure or there’s guides who offer information in several languages.

Who says Business & Pleasure doesn’t mix ?

It's a unique opportunity to socialise, wine and dine on board this stunning vessel, whilst cruising the waves and at the same time gaining a little knowledge on how to make the best of your money whilst living and running your business abroad.

Clubbing

Mostly the media tried to say Napa's notorious for booze crazed youths, dropping all their inhibitions, getting plastered, tattooed and having sex or passing out in the doorways, you know, sun sea and sex ... yep !  No different from any other top resort in the world but at least in Cyprus, you get guaranteed sun 330 days a year, a few of the best beaches in Europe, one of the best seas in the world and loads of sex on the beach ... I was referring to the cocktail 😉

Island Homes Estate Agents, Paralimni

What I like most about this estate agents is the 'Extremely Transparent' tag they've developed from trust and pricing, to the way they'll point out the bad points along with the good.  I love the extra effort they put into each property, checking on title deeds, building permits, and keeping close ties with local authorities so that they pretty much know everything about each property on their books ...

The Mermaid Cruise, Protaras

As we get closer to Blue Lagoon, it's everyone to the front of the boat coz it's time to spot the real live mermaids, normally we find them basking in the sun on the rocks at the gorgeous Blue Lagoon and guess what? if you shout out loud enough, they'll dive in and you'll have the chance to swim with them in the beautiful crystal clear, safe waters of the lagoon ...

Can you be Trusted not to be Trusted?

As we cruised out of the harbour, crewmen Salazar and Eddie England took lookout upfront, balanced precariously, holding the ropes to steady themselves as Anne Bonny welcomed us to the Black Pearl and introduced us to the slightly sloshed Captain Jack Sparrow and a few of the crew and told us a bit about the trip ...
