Cyprus – going back south

with No Comments
We had no problems going back to the southern part of the island of Cyprus.

 

While we were looking for a gas station, we noticed a sign directing to the Stavrovouni Monastery.  We had seen pictures of it in our guide and our first host has told us about it. We thought we were going near it anyway, why not go and see it. It is definitely more impressive from afar, sitting on the top of the mountain. From up close it is a closed complex, that is forbidden for women. Men have to be properly dressed if they want to enter.

We made some photos of the landscape and Larnaca and left for Kato Drys. This is going to be the last village where we will spend the night.

The complex is beautiful. It is a great mix of ancient and modern that results in functionality and comfort. This is what happens when you let a Swiss person into a lonely village in Cyprus. In the afternoon we had some rest.

In the evening we decided to close the circle by having dinner in Pano Lefkara. This was the village where we started out journey through Cyprus. Last time we were there and the blue pastry shop closed a few seconds before we could enter. Today we managed to get there on time and it was totally worth it.

On the next morning we made a cool fruit breakfast for ourselves. We enjoyed for the last time the garden in front our house and left for the airport.
