Coach Trip

Up very early (Daft O’Clock) watched the sunrise before walking to a nearby pick up point for our coach trip to the Troodos Mountains and Nicosia. A fantastic trip which visits quaint villages and a look at the worlds only divided capital of Nicosia.
Aircon all the way, we were the first pick up (Along with eight holiday reps on their training course (MSBs)
Then after pick ups in Protaras, Agia Napa and Larnaka we headed for Lefkosia (Nicosia) for a brief stop before making our way to the hills.
The photo was taken out of a window on the sixth floor of Debenhams in Nicosia…. Honest. If you look closely at the photo you can see the Turkish flag embedded into the hillside (Long story)
So many tourists in the divided capital, a walking tour was in progress as we walked through and I heard a guide say something about Venatians while pointing to some structure. I just had to say it “If it wasn’t for the Venatians it would be curtains for everyone” (I know, old but gold)
Up the mountain for lunch and few stops on the way down, what a fantastic day. Saw a big part of the island and learnt a lot about the history. On a scale of one to ten it has to be a ten.
