Easter Orthodox Style, 2019

Ocean Aquarium Park, Protaras

George showed me around the grounds explaining; "You can learn so much about marine life here, and rivers and swamps and the Penguins, the first ever in the Mediterranean region, naturally kept comfortable in the appropriate climate controlled environment".  Just watching one of their videos I amazingly learned that all Gold Fish don't have stomachs, so they have to keep eating, which means you should feed them small amounts 5 times a day, probably why I was never successful keeping one, but now I know!

The Black Pearl, Pirate Boat Trip, Ayia Napa

The Black Pearl's adventure glides you along the rugged coastline towards Cape Greco.  Hoisting the colours, Captain Jack Sparrow, Sweet Bonnie and all the other gorgeous pirates, will get you in the mood, making pirate flags and dressing you up and teaching you some pirates facts and some pirate lingo ... and you'll even learn the Pirates Oath ... ho hum and a bottle of Rum!
