  1. Ooh these pictures are gooorgeous, I would love some vintagey suitcases like this, although I do agree they were more made for the days or travelling on sleeper trains rather than Ryanair flights! Hope your having a lovely time,


  2. Lovely pictures! Have a great vacation. xo

  3. I've never been to Cyprus, but The Time Traveller's Wife is a lovely book!

  4. The time travellers wife is a fantastic book! its really worth the read, I saw the film after I read it and was a bit disappointed, they left out some key story lines, but I don't think I've ever seen a film that is better than the book!
    I really want to get some vintage suitcases for my trip to America but I'm scared they'll break on the plane and all my stuff will be lost, so i think I'll just get some and keep scarves and other bits in them!
    have a lovely holiday :)

  15. Hey there! If you're looking for nice beaches (but crowded) and crazy night-life go to Protaras or Agia Napa. Paphos has also great beaches! While there you can go to "Petra tou Romiou", "Bath of Aphrodite" and "Tafoi ton Vasileon" (tourist must see places). If you like mountains you can go to Machairas, Kykkos, Lefkara or one of the many village we have here. In Nicosia you can stroll in "Laiki Yeitonia", Ledra street and the old city (inside the walls) in general. When you're done with all the walking and pic-taking you can treat yourself with some shopping in Makariou Avenue! (near Eleftheria Square). For shopping you can also visit The Mall of Cyprus (before entering the highway from Nicosia) or My Mall in Limasol. You can also go to Larnaca and Limasol (both cities with beaches). Oh and if you like waterparks you can visit the Waterworld-Waterpark in Agia Napa! In any case look for Time Out Cyprus for tourists! The 2010 edition is out now in most kiosks and newsagents! For more info visit: Enjoy your stay and if you need anything you can ask me!
