Booking a holiday at Christmas time was an interesting experience to say the least. Adam and I flew to Cyprus in the early hours of Boxing Day for 5 nights and returned on New Year's Eve. I can imagine traveling for 12 hours with a sickness bug wasn't the best way to finish Christmas off or to start a holiday for Adam but after an overdue nap and the longest sleep we begun our little Cyprus adventure.

We stayed at Club St George Hotel in Paphos. As it was winter time, it was between 13-18 degrees through the week and the evenings were still dark. The first day, didn't look so promising weather-wise as most of the things we wanted to do were outdoors. We embraced the rain and made our way to a local shopping mall after a much needed lay-in, eating a lot of good food and strolling around all the shops. We then headed back to the hotel dinner in the evening and had an early night. 

The weather was much nicer the following day and we made our way to Paphos Zoo which seemed to be a very recommended spot. I went in excited to feed some giraffes after reading reviews and come out crying from happiness after petting a baby tiger (half due to a glass of wine just before half because that was my peak of happiness and excitement all at once). You'll see the few moments of pure happiness in the photo below of Adam and I. 

We also drove up to the Adino's Baths and parked a 20 minute walk away (the roads were so bumpy it would've taken us longer to drive carefully than walk). The Baths were amazing and I can imagine would be a lot livelier in the summer time in the sun but definitely still worth a visit. On the walk back we went on a small mission to rescue a kitten on a cliff which turned out not to be stuck at all then explored a little more. The last few days were spent exploring ruins and Paphos town and eating a lot of good food. 

Cyprus was such a nice getaway with a few bumps in between, it gets me so excited to go away again this summer looking back soon the photos...
