We have been very fortunate this year to have traveled quite a few places Las Vegas, New Jersey, New York, Anna Maria Island, Panama City Beach, New Orleans, The UK and Cyprus.
On our recent trip via the UK to Essentepe Northern Cyprus, we spent 6 nights in a lovely hilltop villa belonging to my husbands sister and brother-in-law.
The village of Essentepe was so quaint. I felt I had stepped back in time, unspoiled, original with a Greek influence and rustic charm. A mix of old and new.
Essentepe meaning Windy Hill is one of the many charming small villages nestling at the foot of the Kyrenia mountains.
The harbour in Kyrenia was a surprise with a backdrop of ancient castle ruins. A vibrant and busy working harbour surrounded by a myriad of outdoor cafes and restaurants, Mediterranean style.
We toured the harbour area and had cocktails by the bay, after we toured the Bazaars and shops a short walk from the Harbour..
A little shopping, Maybe a souvenir or two.
I couldn’t resist a bargain. Seriously!
Michael Kors, Celine, Gucci and Chanel
They may be replicas but I was seriously shocked just how well made they were, very stylish, cute and functional.
I have had so many compliments since I have shown my booty off.
Something to remember our visit to Northern Cyprus.
The area has many quality restaurants, its an up and coming area with many new builds in progress.
You do need a car to get around though as some places are a little remote with limited amenities.
