Day 9 Part 4: Aphrodite Hills Resort & Aphrodite’s Rocks at Sunset

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 …

We stayed at the Madeira Beach KOA and rented a wooden lodge cabin. The campsite has a really great selection of all sorts of beautiful cabin lodges to choose from. There’s a nice swimming pool open all year round as well as a hot tub. We rented bikes and cycled the Pinellas Trail which can be reached directly from the campground. We kayaked the Long Bayou by the campground. They organize fun outdoor movie nights as well as other social events which ae a lot of fun. Since we had the car with us, we got …

VEGAS: Bellagio Conservatory

Some of you have asked me what to do & see in Vegas. I would definitely put the Bellagio Conservatory on your list. The photos above are from my 1st trip to Vegas which was during Labor Day Weekend.
