The Beauty of Northern Cyprus

The Beauty of Northern Cyprus

Lemon trees brush against our balcony railings, the air laced with the scent of Jasmine, Citrus and Frangipani. The garden paths are alight with the stunning colours of the Bougainvillea hanging heavily on its pergolas and arches. This is Riverside Garden Resort, a Mediterranean Paradise in Northern (Turkish) Cyprus.

 

Beyond the gates a land of ancient castles, monasteries and abbeys awaits, still basking in centuries of blue sky and hot sun. Generous restaurants and bars are out there, lining up trays of mezzes to serve with limonata or ice cold beers at the end of our mountain walks. Later perhaps we will swim, or just catch some rays before we spruce up for dinner in the warm darkness under the grape trellis on the terrace…

 

In this land our Pound Sterling goes a long way; more holiday freedom tomorrow and the next…and the next…better bring your camera…
