Where I stayed
Antonis G Hotel Apartments
Yet another trip to Cyprus!
I am so excited because I have planned the whole trip better this time.
I am flying with the Cypriot Airlines, and I am having a nice comfortable seat with nobody sitting beside me in the very front seats.
The duration of the flight is one hour 40 minutes from Athens.
A friend of mine picks me up from the airport and drives me directly home. It is so hot !! Mum greets me at the door, and I can't wait to take off the clothes I wear and put on some light clothes……But…to my surprise I remember that I have not brought along any summer clothes
I am in the room and actually feel nervous. I just cannot decide what clothes to take with me. Suddenly I realize that I have not worked out well on what to wear in Cyprus this time. How wrong I could be!
I have brought boots that I am sure I might never wear. Pullovers, and different other things…..everything but summer t-shirts!
We leave Mum’s house and I am driven to Antonis G Apartments, this time with just a very small suitcase and a handbag. My apartment is really nice but there is nobody else at the hotel. Tourism in Cyprus this year was not the best. The economic crisis has influenced Cyprus like many other countries, and in reality this is the best season to book and come to Cyprus with unbelievably low prices.
This hotel that I am in has 5 apartments in an unbelievably low cost. Just 25-30 euros a night.
I have a sumptuous lunch with Antoni and Christalla his wife and actually we spend the whole afternoon talking and enjoying each other’s company.
Antoni insists that we go out but I tell him that I prefer to stay at the hotel this first night. I want to make some phone calls and arrange to meet some people so I really prefer to finish with all these tonight. A nice surprise is to hear my sister telling me that she is coming to the hotel to see me. The last time we met each other was in March.
An enjoyable day with the company of friends.
