Cyprus

Lady in Aphrodite’s Cyprus

Legend has it that Aphrodite was born in Cyprus. Out of the sea foam on a lovely stretch of Mediterranean island sand, the goddess of love emerged to inspire the ancient Greeks. But the ancients aren’t the only ones she inspired, and even now her mythical beauty lures people to the country of her birth to fall in love. I am one of them.

Cyprus is a divided country. Greek in the south and Turkish in the north, the Mediterranean island is inhabited by two nations. I was fascinated by Cyprus’ duality when I was in college, and ever since then I have wanted to visit and do some Cyprus sightseeing to learn more about its history and culture.
