Cyprus tour : September 2014

Had just another great holiday in Cyprus with the some of the family. Just wish my younger brother Craig and his wife Alison, could have made it out. Also Happy Birthday to my Dad who turned 70 on the 20th September and my older brother Douglas, who’s Birthday is on the same day.

We had great weather the whole of the holiday, was around 28C to 30C every day. No rain at all! Also went swimming in the sea, not once but twice! So sorry about the topless photo, you are about to see!

Cyprus 2014 just been booked!

OMG! For the third year, I am going to Cyprus! We have booked the same apartment that we have used before. This time, we are flying out from Glasgow Airport. Which will make nice change. Since the last two times, we have used Stansted Airport.

This time, I will fly back just before my birthday. Which I don’t mind at all. Since this time, we are mainly going for my Dad’s 70th! Best not say much more about it. He does not like people speaking about his age.

The Cyprus 2013 holiday

I must say the holiday I just had in Paphos, Cyprus was amazing. After going last year I was a bit worried it would not live up to that holiday. But it did.

Can’t really compare the two. Since last year I went to Cyprus for my older bothers Wedding. This year we all went for a family holiday.

This time I got to see much more if the island. Last time we only stayed close to the apartment. This time we went on a boat cruise. And a bus tour of the Troodos Mountains.

The tour up the Troodos Mountains was really the highlight of the whole holiday. Just was a had access to a bike while in Cyprus. The Troodos Mountains would have been so much to cycle around.

Only bad thing about the holiday. I did not have any gear with me. Only had some lycra underwear. Which is just not the same. Really can’t wait to get fully back in my full lycra cycling gear and out on the bike!

Oh, I will post more about my holiday soon. I did this update while flying back from Cyprus. Then posted it when I landed back in UK.
