It's been a fascinating and exceptional week in the UK with the cancellation of all those flights. I was lucky enough to go to Cyprus over the Easter break for 10 days. I flew back a couple of days before the halt on air travel so I was very lucky. Some of my friends though have been stranded around the world, including Dubai, Spain and Egypt.
My visit to Cyprus was my first but won't be the last. We stayed at an all inclusive hotel. All inclusive is just brilliant, all our meals, all our drinks catered for! I highly recommend it. We stayed in Paphos which is a beautiful part of Cyprus. The weather for that time of the year was perfect. Not too hot, around 24 degrees with barely a cloud in the sky. I picked up a little bit of colour but still used plenty of high SPF!
If you don't like driving on the 'other side of the road' when you go abroad you'll be pleased to hear that in Cyprus they drive on the left, having said that we just grabbed taxis and busses. And if you do head to Cyprus you'll see bananas and oranges growing everywhere, the oranges by the way are out of this world!
On my return I headed to the Isle of Wight to catch up with Mum, Dad and the family. I also paid a visit to Seaview Wildlife Encounter and was invited behind the scenes to see their baby penguin which is just a few weeks old. So, so, so adorable! I will put some photos up on my blog next week.
Take care and see you soon
PS. See you for Gold this Monday 26th April 2010 at 6pm!
