Pictures from Cyprus

Since things were so hectic around here, I was unable to post on my blog as much as I would have liked. I promised I would post some pictures of Cyprus before my return so I think its about time to deliver! I didn't go to as many places as I wanted to, so most of these pics are from a small trip we took with my future in-laws, who gifted us a stay at a beautiful smal hotel and spa with natural sulpher springs.


The weather here was GORGEOUS! 70+F during the day with mostly mild nights.






Beautiful




Those rocks are the birth place of Aphrodite, goddess of love. Our venue is on the hill overlooking this point.




The small resort we stayed at. They've done a great job of incorporating traditional Cypriot style with a modern twist.










Us with Mr. Milk's parents

 
View from the top, looking North West






Mountain goats. In the first picture you can make out a few more (white specs)


Mr. Milk pondering life's dilemmas


What you see on the hill is a Turkish army camp. One of the very few on the west side of the island.


112 year old tree! Protected by UNESCO.


Mr. Milk taking a drink from a natural spring water fountain




An old church. If you notice, the dome is a crooked.


A wild mushroom FFIL found



This sweet man owns the coffe shop we stopped to have a drink at. He told us the directions to get to the little church but then decided that he would take us himself. He told us some awesome stories of the area and his life.




The view from the fish tavern we stopped to have lunch at

And last but not least....




My babies! Babe and Ruffles :)

Such beautiful pictures! Your wedding is going to be so ridiculously stunning. I think I'm officially jealous. One of my BMs is Greek...maybe I can convince her that she should get married in Greece, too!

Cyprus looks absolutely gorgeous! It's been on my list of places to visit since I made friends with a girl from college who said I could visit her and her family there whenever I wanted. I sadly still haven't gone.

AWESOME! I just told Sean, "let's do what this couple is doing. They are getting married in Cyprus overlooking the birthplace of the goddess of love". Yeah....we don't even have a date set yet :)

I just ooh'ed and aah'ed all the way through these photos. I'm so glad you posted them. What a beautiful place! (I LOVE GOATS!) And that's such an awesome gift as well. We used to have natural sulfur springs near to where I lived in CA and I miss being able to go visit them whenever I want.

Now I really need a vacation. :)
