Paphos Photos – July 2017

This July, me and my mum went to visit my uncle and his partner for 12 nights, in their beautiful villa just outside Paphos in Cyprus. The weather was super scorching, and I still came back a darker shade of pale (goddammit, why won’t I tan?!). I thought I’d share a few lil photographs from our trip, showcasing all the wonderful places we were lucky enough to visit…hope you enjoy…

Here we are watching the sunset go down at a lively bar in Coral Bay, overlooking a magnificent shipwreck in the ocean…

 

We went to go see the popular beautiful intricate Roman mosaics, just by the harbour in Paphos. My favourite is the bottom picture as it depicts Apollo and Daphne from ancient Greek mythology; legend goes Daphne transforms into a laurel tree to escape Apollo’s advances, and I have a tattoo on my right forearm depicting Daphne’s transformation as the name Lauren (my name) derives from laurel (clever, ey, hehe)…

 

Here’s us just ‘enjoying life’ by the harbour…

 

One day, we went to visit the ancient theatre and archaeological remains at the acropolis of Kourion (Curium)..on the drive back to Paphos, we stopped by the side of the road to get a couple of great photographs with Aphrodite’s rock in the background…

 

Another day, we went to a lovely little donkey sanctuary (n’awww) where we fed the donkeys, at a very reasonable price it must be said, and then we had yummy ice cream overlooking a breathtaking view of the coastline…

 

My absolute favourite place of the holiday however, was the stunning paradise that is Adonis Baths waterfalls in Paphos. I got in and had a little swim, by god the water is freezing! But, wow, absolutely gorgeous place. It literally took my breath away (honestly it did, the water was that cold!)…

 

And to finish off a few typical holiday pics… being lazy by the pool in the villa, and having a few cheeky glasses of wine / dancing the night away at the local clubhouse… 😀

 

Thank you very much for reading / viewing… hope you like my holiday photos of Paphos…

Cya later, alligator! 😀
