Cyprus

Linos InnTwice in recent years, we have spent time in Cyprus and have enjoyed exploring the history and culture of this fascinating divided island.  Last year K and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a few days exploring the region around the Troodos mountains.  We stayed in a slightly quirky inn in old Kakopetria, which was an adventure in itself, although we could not have been looked after better.  We used this as a base to explore many of the painted churches in the area.  The detail and use of colour in these churches was brilliant, although to preserve them, it was not possible to take photographs of the interior.  Many of these churches are now listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites and are thoroughly worth the effort of finding some of the more remote locations.
