After a stop in Turkey, I wanted to go somewhere near by for a quick beach break. Cyprus seemed to be the perfect answer. Landing there was tougher than I thought. Because of the political division between Greeks and Turkish in the country, I couldn't fly into the North and out of the South, so I was forced to buy a last minute ticket to fly through Greece. Needless to say what should be a 2 hour journey from Istanbul became a 10 hour one!
I finally landed and the clear blue water and white sand made it all worth it. And a friend from the AIESEC conference introduced me to a family who took me to a far away beach, a local restaurant, and a chic coffee shop in Lefkosia. Nice. I definitely can't complain. Thanks, Romani!
