    Tasting the Cypriot wines

    Myself tasting wines at a winery

    If you are taking the Wine Route, surely you will be visiting a number of wineries.

    Unique Suggestions: If you intend to try a lot of wines, avoid swallowing it. Otherwise you may not be able to drive.
    Don't start driving with an empty stomach. Of course in some wineries they might offer you some nuts or some soutzouko, but it is so small quantity that you might easily get drank if you have eaten nothing.

    Fun Alternatives: Let the wine run down the route to your stomach - preferable accompanying it with some food.

    Savour the taste it leaves at your your plate, what is known as "aftertaste".

    who's the jackass now?

    Jeep Safari Tours are sold here in Cyprus at most tourist hotels. You cram up to 10-tourists into a crappy Land Rover. They have to sit sideways on the benchseats, so their backs are actually to the window. So it is difficult to look out. Nevermind the crick in your neck at the end of the day. Then you drive them to the Troodos Mtns. 'on paved roads'. What is the point? May as well jump in a nice comfortable bus, but then it would not be a jeep safari tour would it? Suckers! ; - )
