Larnaca, Nicosia, Todos Mountains, and Paphos
Hear about journey to Cyprus as the Newbie Traveler talks to Audrey Scott and Daniel Noll of UncorneredMarket.com about their energetic Cyprus itinerary.
Dan and Audrey say, “It [Cyprus] really does have some actually good hiking not only in conditions of coastal routes, where you have these attractive, dramatic cliffs and crystal apparent Mediterranean Sea further than. But Cypress also has the Troodos mountains, which I feel the summit is 2000 meters, so a tiny around 6000 ft. When we had been there, at New Year’s, close of December, the starting of January, there was actually snow in the mountains. So in the class of one particular week, we had been climbing and t-shirts alongside the coast and sunshine. And then we ended up mountaineering in the snow in the mountains. We also observed a canyon, and had been climbing above rocks and boulders.”
“In addition to all the mountaineering, there is also an outstanding background in Cyprus, likely again about 8 to 10,000 a long time, so several layers of civilizations from the Greeks to the Egyptians. And so there are some very attention-grabbing archaeological web pages, some geological web sites also.”
A great deal of the tourism in Cyprus is since of its beautiful seashores but this episode focuses more on the hiking, tradition and historical past of Cyprus. Audrey and Daniel flew into Larnaca. Right after exploring that metropolis they headed to the southeast corner of the island at Cape Greco. Cape Greco is a nationwide park identified for its rocky coast, azure waters and sea caves.
They then headed to the divided funds of Nicosia where they invested time on both of those the Greek and Turkish sides. They explored the markets, a fantastic archaeology museum, and a caravanserai. They also took the time for Daniel to go to a regional barber and get a haircut… and a bit more than he bargained for.
They drove to the snow covered Troodos Mountains wherever they hiked close to Mount Olympus.
Their remaining end was Paphos which is a occasion town in the summer months, a UNESCO Entire world Heritage site and a recent European Cash of Lifestyle. It has common ruins and touristy souvenir shops. They advise the beautiful Aphrodite Path which follows the cliffs on the rocky shore and the Avakas Gorge hike.
Cyprus can be a terrific seaside holiday but it can also be so considerably extra. It has a prosperous culture and deep record as nicely as spectacular surroundings. It also does have some fairly great shorelines.

“During this episode there was point out of bat guano harvesting. At a person time there was also a quick energy to harvest bat guano in a cave in western Grand Canyon. Like most mining functions in Grand Canyon the logistics and value of retrieving these “precious gems” turned out to not be successful. The price of accessing it and transporting it out of these types of a distant challenging site was way too significantly to be truly worth the effort.”
