Last Saturday during my mini work break I received a notification that I won a VIG package from Guaba Beach Bar – that’s a sofa & a bottle of Guaba Nectar for me & 8 people. I was so excited especially since I had the Sunday off & was planning to head over there for their amazing Red Sunday DJ line-up. This was my first ever DJ show at Guaba Beach Bar which is by the way the #13 Best Club in the World. The rule was everyone wears RED otherwise you aren’t allowed in. The highlights of the line-up were Matisse & Sadko & of course the amazing YVES V. The place quickly flooded with people in red & the music & the atmosphere kept on getting better and better. Below are photos from this amazing event.
So recently while walking through downtown Limassol I remembered that i wanted to do a blog post on local graffiti street art and perhaps do a series because I have street art photo coverage from London, Porto, Barcelona and Rome too. At first I thought well I probably won’t get enough material but I ended up with over 300 photos so I’m splitting the post in 2 parts with the 2nd on Limassol Street Life Festival that just happened last weekend. I remember back 10 years ago when graffiti was considered to be a form of vandalism, but today it has become more of an art form. You can even take graffiti art classes these days which is pretty cool. Today many buildings all over the world are decorated in pretty graffiti paintings and walls all over cities have meaningful messages on them. Let me know which city you visited impressed you with their street art in the comment section below and stay tuned for Part 2 of Limassol Street Art.

What a fantastic & super sunny day it has been over here in Limassol, Cyprus today. I took this photo of the Pier a little bit over an hour ago. The high temperature of the day was 17C although with the sun shining so bright and strong, it felt like 20C or above. It’s hard to believe that this is winter. I live for days like this! ☀ Cyprus is one of the warmest places in Europe during the winter season and thanks to plenty of budget airlines, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get here.

After our beautiful and busy day trip of sightseeing the West part of the island: Day 9: Part 1 – Avdimou Bay & Pissouri Bay Day 9: Part 2 – Columbia Beach Resort Day 9 Part 3: Pissouri Village, Aphrodite’s Rocks, Lunch at Kouklia Village Day 9 Part 4: Aphrodite Hills Resort & Aphrodite’s Rocks at Sunset we went back to my place for dinner and then headed back to our Airbnb apt by the sea to get ready for our night out. Since I couldn’t wear this dress last weekend I had to wear it tonight. Oddly enough I was bloated again with same stomach issues from some food I ate, but that didn’t really matter because we were about to have a great, fun night out! 🙂 We had so much fun at Rumours the night before, we decided to return and start the night there. Just like Friday night, the Saturday atmosphere at Rumours was absolutely amazing! We received complimentary drinks of our choice once again, so we tried some new cocktails this time. We were having such a good …
After our lunch at Kouklia Village we headed for Aphrodite Hills Resort. This place is huge and has tons of beautiful properties for sale and rent. One of the houses had a Libra sign on it, so I took photos of mum and Annnie in front of it since they are both libras. We also noticed a church on the way and stopped by to take some more photos. The church dates back to the 12th century. After our little tour of the Aphrodite Hills Resort, we enjoyed drinks on the sunset terrace upstairs. I ordered tea for my sore throat, which helped a bit. Our last stop of the day trip was stopping by Aphrodite’s Rocks at sunset to touch the rocks and make a wish. I found a couple of photos of Aphrodite’s Rocks from our earlier pass by stop that were in my camera so I’m adding those below. The sunset later was crazy cool. I made a video of it which is also below. VIDEO: Aphrodite’s Rocks VIDEO: Aphrodite’s Rocks VIDEO: Aphrodite’s Rocks Sunset Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night …
