Two Years In: Nicosia, Cyprus

During our second year exploring the island of Cyprus, we roamed from the northeastern Karpas Peninsula to the western Akamas Peninsula and southeastern Cape Greco. We experienced the small villages, local festivals, and the natural beauty of Cyprus.
And even though Cyprus is remarkably diverse for such a small place, sometimes we still had to get away and visit places off of the island, so we've included those trips as well.

Our Cyprus Experience: August 2018 to August 2019
