2016-12-12T21:50:15+00:00 December 12th, 2016|

Manolia City Residences is located in the heart of Nicosia, in the famous shopping street Stasikratous. We booked to stay there based on the top reviews it has been receiving since its opening, the low prices and of course its location. Prices vary from 45 Euros up to 65 Euros per night, depending on the room you wish to book. Location - Stasikratous Street The location of Manolia is their biggest advantage.

Best Winter Travel Destinations

2016-12-06T08:57:54+00:00 December 5th, 2016|

You might see winter travel destinations and what will come to you mind is snow right?  But this post its not only about cold freezing places. This is a collaboration post with other travel bloggers who are recommending a city for winter either because crowds are smaller compared to other seasons and this is the best way to explore the city. Off season also means that its cheaper because the city is not that popular compared to higher seasons. Some others cities in this post have been recommended just because they are very popular for Christmas time and some other places are just great to travel too just because its summer! Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm for winter? Yeh, its pretty cold but why not? A recommendation from me after visiting this city in winter. The city is covered with snow and looks beautiful. There are less tourists which [...]

Charlie & The Chocolate Factory: London Theater

2016-12-05T13:28:41+00:00 November 21st, 2016|

Planning a visit to London soon? Is a theater trip on your mind or not? London is very famous for its spectacular West End musical shows. I watched Charlie & The Chocolate Factory in West End and it was amazing. Nothing compares to watching the movie on TV and experiencing it live in a theater. I am totally recommending you to watch this show, and believe me, although tickets tend to be expensive (specially during Christmas Period) its worth it. The Story The mysterious confectioner Willy Wonka comes to life in this Olivier Award-winning West End musical directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes. Now in its fourth and final GOLDEN year at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. When Charlie wins a golden ticket to the weird and wonderful Wonka Chocolate Factory, it's the chance of a lifetime to feast on the sweets he's always dreamed of. [...]

Armou Village, the place where you can enjoy spectacular views of Paphos Town

2016-12-05T13:04:36+00:00 November 19th, 2016|

It would be unfair not to write something about Armou Village, the village I grew up and lived there for many years. Armou is a village in Paphos located a few minutes away from Paphos City Centre. You can enjoy the spectacular Paphos town view and horizon sea views from almost every point in the village both during day and night. When googling Armou you cannot find enough information apart from properties which are advertised to be sold or to be rented. Apparently is a village which has been modernized over the past few years and a lot of new properties have been built almost everywhere. I was told by my grandparents that the name of the village came from the fact that Aphrordite’s chariot passed from the village (chariot in greek is Αrma – Άρμα). The village is accessible from the Paphos-Limassol highway either taking the Geroskipou-Konia exit or by reaching [...]

Santorini Top 10 Things to Do

2016-11-16T17:09:23+00:00 November 16th, 2016|

Santorini is another beautiful island of the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, shaping its existing landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). Personally, I believe Santorini is more for sightseeing instead of swimming (there are other Greek islands with great beaches and golden sand for that). In Santorini you can enjoy amazing landscapes, views, wineries, food and the amazing sunset. You can visit is anytime between April - November, where the weather is still warm compared to northern European countries. If you choose to visit within October-November prices are dropping compared to high season during summer. If you select to visit during low season, then you should stay in Fira since most places are still open. 1. Watch the most famous sunset [...]

Destinations reveal in this post include, Krakow in Poland, Albania, Lambok and Tanjung Pinang in Indonesia. Enjoy reading the following recommendations based on real stories. Albania: Katalin from Our Life Our Travel  Albania is one of the cheapest and most beautiful countries in Europe. Me and my husband spent there a month this year while traveling around the Balkans, and it was our top country. The mountains are amazing, the beaches have crystal clear water, and they are less developed and less crowded than elsewhere in the continent. The hostel prices start from 5 euro per night, the hotels are also cheap, although we decided to rent our own house which costed the same [...]
