Cyprus: Thoughts on Leaving

A coastal view from Kourion
Cyprus is a pretty place, as this view from Kourion demonstrates

I liked Cyprus, though for different reasons than I was expecting to. I'm not a great beach worshipper, so visiting in late February sounded perfect, but as luck would have it (and as everyone kept reminding us) we picked the coldest and wettest February on record to explore the island. It's worth bearing this in mind when reading my travelogue; Kourion in the summer would be a totally different experience to Kourion in the winter, I'm sure.
