    This weekend - mountains!
    I love spending weekends in the mountains during our hot summer. This time we went for a drive on Saturday, from Nicosia on to Kakopetria, Troodos, Platres and came back via Pedoulas. It's been a while to see all these places, and I enjoyed the trip.

    Sweet mountain cherries - ripe for picking off the tree.

    Mountain dog :)

    Holy water and some holy dude's icon - not sure who it was.

    Small waterfall.

    Trout farm - there is a restaurant right next to it serving the fish from the farm.

    Mountain view

    And another one.

    And my favourite one.

    Weekend getaway
    First weekend in Cyprus we ran away from the heat of the capital into the sanctuary of Columbia Hotel in Pissouri. It was fab! Beautifully positioned down the slope of the mountain by the sea, it is a perfect getaway. Sort of in the middle of nowhere, little village of Pissouri still has everything you need for a lovely minibreak. Complete with Greek dancers! :)

    We stayed in a super swanky garden studio, not the actual hotel building. Perfect!

    The pool is heaven.

    The sea was a little too cold for me (but I am weird like that, plenty of people were swimming)

    The resort grounds are super relaxing and perfect for a lazy stroll

    However, I didn't bother strolling, I spent my time reading my book watching the sunset and the moon! :)

    And eating. Missed the food! Was gonna take the pic of the food, but then realised I had already finished it ;-)

    Andy :)

    Me... with a glass of wine of course.

    The Moon. Can't even begin describing what a lovely weather we have here! Perfect for sitting outside with a glass of wine watching the moon.

    Room terrace faces the pool and the sea. 2 square metres of pleasure!

    But we are back in Nicosia now, stuck at home for lack of something to do - not complaining, this is awesome! Sadly, all too soon this will end, and we won't be able to pull "we have just arrived so no chores please" card, lol.
