Xmas 2003 in Paphos
"Last Minute Deal"
Around about a month before xmas we decided we needed a holiday in the sun. We had looked around for a few weeks and Nikki decided that Cyprus was a good choice.
We booked a last minute deal in November and took an allocated on arrival package.
We ended up in the Aquasol Villiage North of Paphos and luckily enough our friends had booked there too, they had gotten married in Limassol the year before and I was lucky enough to be his best man on the day.
We had read various reports on the net about this place some good, some very bad so we were a little aprehensive when checking in but we were pleasently surprised to find out it wasn't that bad at all. Certainly not 4 star as advertised, but we had booked 2 star self catering anyway.
They were doing a great deal ?15 a day all inclusive and needless to say being the Scotsman and liking my food and drink I went for that. IT was great value for money.
The weather wasn't fantastic for the first couple of days but on Xmas day and the last day we were there it was really sunny.
It was fantastic relaxing on Xmas day in the sun and enjoying the local beveridges aplenty.
The whole idea of the holiday was to relax so we didn't travel anywhere in Cyprus but we couldn't resist going on the day excursion to Egypt (see Cairo page).
All in all an enjoyable holiday, it was a strange experience my first Xmas not with family, but it was good to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all.
