Karpaz Peninsula

A weekend getaway and a chance to pitch our tent. The far eastern peninsula where the wild Cyprus donkeys roam. Rolling green hills and golden sand beaches encompass the landscape. It is truly any nature lovers dream location. The island weather passes quickly, and we mostly enjoyed the warm winter sunshine and the amazing scenery. It's a tough place to get to, which probably makes it even more special, and so we are thankful and appreciative for being able to make the journey.

Yep, they drive on the left side in Cyprus.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover."
