We’re staying in a villa just outside Kyrenia. It’s always great to arrive and find that the villa is all it was described to be! It’s fairly new and has all the home comforts that you need on vacation with children. We spent most of yesterday around the pool recovering from our traveling.
The rental car then arrived and we then headed out to explore and get our bearings. Kyrenia has a gorgeous harbor and castle – relative to the rest of N. Cyprus it is quite touristy – but in the grand scheme of things it is pretty low key. Just as I remember it from 1998, there are still lots of expats here. Most places even accept stirling as well as Turkish lira.
The Dome Hotel is where we spent the first night of our honeymoon in 1998.
We sat at one of the harbor bars for treats – Mum had one too:)
We then thankfully discovered a fabulous supermarket. We will be eating out, but it’s also reassuring to know that we can buy great food and eat at home when we need to. The children are very happy that we have found chicken kofte, fries and watermelon – they won’t starve:)
Now for my attire for the past couple of days. I love my new harems from Mango – so comfortable for travel. (Laughing at the Bisto gravy granules in the background – they’re to take home!).
Trousers – Mango // T-shirt – Gap // Sandals – Zara // Scarf – Gap
Yesterday I was in a bikini most of the time but ventured out in my River Island t-shirt dress and new M&S sandals. These sandals are perfect – so comfy and they have rubber soles so no slip sliding over cobbled streets.
The BIG holiday hair arrived after a day in the pool and the wind in Kyrenia:)
And of course Poppy didn’t want to miss out on the photo ops. Here she is in her new M&S dress.
Off to find a beach today!
