We are back after a couple of spring/early summer island vacations.
We visited Maldives and Cyprus, both beautiful places with amazing beaches.
Here are a few pics and videos...enjoy!
Hard Rock Maldives
We went back to Maldives for our 6-day Eid break at the start of June, this time staying at the Hard Rock Hotel Maldives.
It was a great resort with lots of live music and amazing restaurants.
We had a couple days with friends Dave & Nicky before they went back to the UK.
Lots of time chilling on the white sand and in the pool.
Once again...strongly recommend the Maldives if you ever get a chance!
We went to Cyprus at the start of June for a long weekend. 4 days is not enough time to see this beautiful island, but we definitely enjoyed our time in Ayia Napa.
Cyprus has a huge Greek influence and you can find their food and wines everywhere...at really good prices! We spent our time in Ayia Napa which is known for it's party vibe, as many 20-30 year olds from the UK come there to hit the clubs and bars which go until 4-5am. Not sure how us old farts were supposed to fit it but we put in a strong effort.
Check out the "Summer of '69" video below and watch Lisa dancing. A guy walks by and starts dancing with her. Keep an eye for his wife who comes in to clean him up and then he walks off with his head down. So funny!
We enjoyed the beautiful Nissi Beach and did a boat trip that was pretty wild. It even had it's own police (Constable Cruise) that would arrest you and make you pay the penalty of a shot and free drink. Best police ever!! Once again...it was us partying with a bunch of 20-30 year olds.
If you want cheap drinks and food, beautiful beaches, crystal blue water, and some amazing old architecture and ruins, then definitely visit Cyprus. Next time we will stay longer and visit Larnaca, Limassol, Pissouri, and Paphos as well as the party town of Ayia Napa. Cyprus also has some nice golf courses and lots of wine tours.
And less than a 3 hour flight from us!!!
We have 3 weeks left to plan details for our upcoming trips...
Fun times! Will try to upload a blog with Canada and Africa safari pics in late August.
Hope everyone has a great summer!
Cheers and love from L&J
