I like a good European weekend escape, and when there’s romance involved I love it.

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.

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.
