I'm back from Cyprus...

Wow! What a trip! Cyprus was amazing! Firstly may I say, just breaking the confines of the UK was amazing! Getting on a plane and heading for an unknown destination was a trip indeed!
So me and Mrs. K headed off to Cyprus without knowing a thing about it!


First of all, let's place it on the map! I thought it was in Greece, but it turns out this idyllic holiday isle is nearer to Iraq, Israel, Egypt and Syria! Surely that's an advert for getting to know more about the world!


Number one, it was great to head off to warmer climes, and hitting the mediterranean climate in March was fun! We're talking sun! Warmth! T-Shirts and shorts!


Despite being a million miles away, Cyprus is very English! They drive on the same side of the road, have just given up the pound, and even have the same electric hook up! But that's where the similarity stops...


The place is a historic and mythical goldmine! I went up 'Mount Olympus', saw the 'birthplace of Aphrodite' and gazed on many a Roman mosaic while I was there... Truly inspiring!

The Cypriot people are fabulous and the welcome was amazing... If you want to know more look here...

Suffice to say the holiday was amazing, and to be best man at my best friend's weding was an honour indeed.


Now back to videogames and television, I knew there was a reason for me being here...

Funny, I really want to break the confines of this place and go to Europe! I really want to go to London!

Welcome back, Father! Glad to see that you had a great time there. Indeed the mediterranean climate is pretty neat, right now I'm also enjoying some nice, warm sun rays :)

By the way, this may sound lame, but I actually missed you, specially in the Saturn Junkyard. Without you and Elend that place looked like a desert... Oh, and pass by my place sometime, will ya? :)

Thanks for your comments boys!
@junlee... remember that our sceptered isle has far more to it than London! It would bea hame to come all this way and miss ou on the delights of Stonehenge, Loch Ness and the majestic Welsh mountains! (Oh and Manchester!)

@Nebacha No, it doesn't sound lame, it's beautiful! Thanks! Im glad to be back!

@bj... Glad you enjoyed Cyprus mate! Good luck on getting back for the big 40!

Well yes of course, I would want to see a lot more than that, but London would probably be the first place I went.

Are those pictures you took from your trip to Cyrpus or just some pictures you found online?
