Our trip to Kyrenia originally posted August 22 2006

Here are some photos of our holiday in Kyrenia (Girne) last week.

We were supposed to be staying in Famagusta but arrived to find they had double booked us. We had a swim in their pool then dinner before driving on to Kyrenia. That was some journey, we were following our friend's (Jason, Rowena and their 2 girls Cerys & Iona). The road, if you could call it that, was single track with huge potholes, sometimes the road disappeared and it was just a dirt track.

Kyrenia is in the Northern part of Cyprus and comes under Turkish rule, it's a very picturesque town. We were staying in a villa at Ambelia Village hotel, it was within walking distance of Bellapais Abbey.

We went into to the town one evening, walked around the castle and had dinner by the harbour.

The children had great fun in the pool, once they were in bed we (the adults) played Rummycub or cards.

Coming back to the South we got a little lost, it's not sign posted for the border crossing. We went into Nicosia (Lefkosia) first, then realised the crossing is on the outskirts of the city.

We're hoping to go back again in October when my parents come to visit.
