Last time we lived in Cyprus, we were new first-time parents.
I remember the idea was to drive to the seaside every now and then for a refreshing weekend away from the busy streets of Nicosia.
It was an excellent plan and we did it, at least twice!
The packing, the driving, the sleeping con baby… Truth be told, the seaside might as well have been on the other side of the world! We never went.
We sat in dusty, hot Nicosia all pale. All the while just an hour away, tanned tourists ran into the waves screaming with delight, morning to night.
Eight years on, we are returning to Nicosia with two lively boys. The idea is to drive to the seaside every now and then for a refreshing weekend away from the busy streets of the capital.
Or maybe just a quick visit to the beach and back home again for dinner, but really often.
How do you think we’ll do?
