Hear about journey to Cyprus as the Newbie Traveler talks to Audrey Scott and Daniel Noll of UncorneredMarket.com about their lively Cyprus itinerary.
Dan and Audrey say, “It [Cyprus] essentially does have some actually good climbing not only in phrases of coastal routes, exactly where you have these stunning, extraordinary cliffs and crystal clear Mediterranean Sea beyond. But Cypress also has the Troodos mountains, which I feel the summit is 2000 meters, so a tiny above 6000 ft. When we had been there, at New Year’s, finish of December, the starting of January, there was in fact snow in the mountains. So in the program of just one week, we have been mountaineering and t-shirts alongside the coastline and sunshine. And then we were mountaineering in the snow in the mountains. We also found a canyon, and had been climbing above rocks and boulders.”
“In addition to all the hiking, there is also an outstanding background in Cyprus, likely back about 8 to 10,000 years, so numerous levels of civilizations from the Greeks to the Egyptians. And so there are some very intriguing archaeological internet sites, some geological websites also.”
A great deal of the tourism in Cyprus is because of its gorgeous shorelines but this episode focuses extra on the climbing, lifestyle and background of Cyprus. Audrey and Daniel flew into Larnaca. Immediately after discovering that town they headed to the southeast corner of the island at Cape Greco. Cape Greco is a nationwide park known for its rocky coast, azure waters and sea caves.
They then headed to the divided capital of Nicosia where by they expended time on both the Greek and Turkish sides. They explored the marketplaces, a good archaeology museum, and a caravanserai. They also took the time for Daniel to go to a neighborhood barber and get a haircut… and a little bit a lot more than he bargained for.
They drove to the snow protected Troodos Mountains where by they hiked close to Mount Olympus.
Their closing cease was Paphos which is a social gathering city in the summertime, a UNESCO World Heritage website and a current European Capital of Culture. It has well-known ruins and touristy memento stores. They suggest the stunning Aphrodite Path which follows the cliffs on the rocky shore and the Avakas Gorge hike.
Cyprus can be a terrific beach front holiday but it can also be so much much more. It has a loaded lifestyle and deep historical past as effectively as amazing scenery. It also does have some really pleasant seashores.

on Journey to Antigua and Barbuda – Episode 796:
“During this episode there was mention of bat guano harvesting. At one time there was also a brief energy to harvest bat guano in a cave in western Grand Canyon. Like most mining operations in Grand Canyon the logistics and price of retrieving such “precious gems” turned out to not be rewarding. The expense of accessing it and transporting it out of this sort of a distant complicated place was as well a lot to be really worth the exertion.”
