So as you might know if you follow me on Instagram, I went to the beautiful Cyprus this summer, in the district of Paphos. It was the most amazing holiday and everyday when I see the horrible English weather, I'm wanting to be back more and more. I thought I'd put together a little travel diary of my time there, for people who are hoping to go there, or for those of you who want to dream of being somewhere else.
Follow me on:
Tomb of the Kings
Tomb of the Kings is a historical necropolis that dates back to 4th century BC where the rich and important were buried. Wondering around here with the rich history and beautiful views was such a nice day out.
For my outfit, I picked something very minimal to walk around in the hot Cyprus sun. I wore these high-waisted shorts from Weekday with this Brandy Melville top and wore this must-have hat for blondes if you want to avoid a red scalp! (which is unfortunately sold out, find a similar hat here) These stand out sunglasses (which are sold out too, find similar styles here and here) did make me feel a bit of a diva, that's why I love them! I wore some super comfy Reebok trainers that match the top and were suitable for lots of walking.
I attempted to do a cool hairstyle since I am usually so lazy with my hair and wanted to add something extra to this simplistic outfit. It kind of failed due to the lack of bobby pins I brought on holiday and the fact that I'm terrible at hair, but I still like the way it turned out. A bonus about this hairstyle was that I could still wear a hat, it was out of my face and it kept my long hair out of the way. I followed the amazing YouTuber Kayley Melissa's video which you can watch here!
Me and my boyfriend decided to wonder into Peyia and explore the local area. We came across this beautiful painted wall that resembled a landscape. For my outfit; I wore the same hat, Sunglasses from Tiger, the top was from Tesco (such a good deal!), shorts from Weekday, a bag from a small market in France and shoes from Pavers.
Art Gallery, Paphos Harbour Castle
Located by some beautiful views of the sea, there is an interesting art gallery in Paphos Harbour Castle. This historic site has lent itself to local artists and their work which are exhibited in this beautiful building. At the top of the building you get amazing views of the sea and of Peyia.
I wore this amazing top from Asos that was so good for keeping cool, along with the same hat, sunglasses, shorts, shoes and bag. With a statement top like this, you can completely change up an outfit and it helps you to bring less clothing when you have a small luggage allowance!
The Best Part of the Trip
To end this amazing trip, Adem and I went on a sunset ride along the coast at George's Ranch in Paphos. Having loved and ridden horses since I was younger, but never been able to ride abroad, this was the best part of the trip! The ranch was filled with beautiful well-kept horses and the people there were so lovely, they even let me ride on my own at the end. I definitely recommend visiting there for a ride if you go!
Hope you enjoyed this travel diary!
