As we here in New England bid a fond adieu to January and step into February in the hopes that winter may soon be over (despite what that pesky groundhog might have done this past Saturday!), the thought occurs to me that I could really use a nice vacation to someplace sunny and warm. I'd love to jump on a flight to Cyprus and just get away for awhile but alas ... I can't afford it for starters and have no time available to take off from work even if I did.
However, if the opportunity presented itself I'd just love to go spend some time in the Mediterranean. After all Cyprus has been pretty popular for the last 9000 years with Romans, Phoenicians, Persians, Greeks, Assyrians, Egyptians and Byzantines who all ruled there as well as vacationed there so it's got to be quite the place! There are ancient vineyards, castles, monasteries and, best of all, hot Mediterranean sun! I could have history and warmth, too - what more could a cold New England girl want?
Hot Mediterranean sun - now that just sounds heavenly, doesn't it??
