Cyprus- Part 2

On Saturday, we were full of energy, and ready to explore.

 After a fabulous breakfast buffet, we walked along the promenade and soaked up some sun.

I loved the pier. Some men were patiently fishing. There's something about a pier that gives me such a freeing feeling.

Lovely park to take a stroll, rollerblade, or like the boy in the picture, learning to bicycle :)
Carla took some photos while I was texting my love. What a stunning view ;) Oh the palm trees are okay too..

Being silly at this point!

At the Limassol medieval castle.

The Castle was okay. It was about the only attraction in Limassol by foot, though. When we were trying to search for a nice taverna to eat lunch at, or even to ask where is a nice place to go, the locals always responded with, "Do you have a car?". Which didn't help us, as we were walking!
Eventually, after a stop at the tourist information centre, we found a square that had a few tavernas.

When we finally settled down to eat, it turned out to be such a lovely meal.

Greek salad, spicy cheese dip

Red wine, fried zucchini ball, toasted bread with olive oil and herbs.

Halumi cheese is a must.
Gorgeous Church on our walk back to the hotel.

Cyprus- Part 3 coming soon!
