Cyprus Diaries

As I have said about a million times in previous posts, the destination of my very last trip this year was going to be Ayia Napa, a village in the eastern part of Cyprus. My mother and I just wanted one week of sun, ocean and the luxury of absolutely doing nothing before I am starting University in October.
