Life in the village is the dream, people here don’t seem to suffer from ‘old age syndrome’ no matter what the age they keep themselves busy and it’s refreshing to see. My short two day break was spent running away from snakes, eating mountain berries and throwing ice cold water over my cousins. All good fun. I wish I grew up in a village, having the mountains as your back garden as a kid must have been the best playground you could imagine. But wait don’t think it gets boring when you become a teenager, oh no Kakopetria (the village) has a club. You heard me a club, in a mountain village. Of course me and my cousins did not require any alcohol or a dance floor to bring the party to the streets with the use of a blackberry curve’s speaker….. Coz that’s just how we rollA small cottage tucked away in the trees. On the first moutain hike where we managed to walk into snakesAfter about an hour of convincing these weren’t toxic I learnt to love wild mountain berriesNot particularly historic but a scenic bridge neverthelessThe village has a plentiful supply of water from underground springsCloud covering the mountainsGot to meet the family hamsterThe village at nightApple anyone?
“The night possess me leaving no room vacant for worries”
The last few days have gone by with my mind absorbed in music as I have just discovered Spotify. My Nights have been less adventurous than I would have liked and those around me seem to have slipped into their routine life leaving me without much to do. At night when I just lay there dreaming of the bliss I experienced this summer during sunsets and the night and how I couldn’t fully absorb it due to the fear and scars left by exams.
However the Night and Sunset occasionally offered me relief. Most of the fond memories I made this summer in the evenings were with company, surprising as I usually find it hard to distinguish myself amongst other people however being embraced by the sea water as the sky faded from blue to orange being shrouded with friends really warmed my heart. The mornings I would usually spend alone cycling, swimming and walking and that’s when I felt most contempt.
I didn’t realize the night could provide me with the similar yet different feelings.
It was like experiencing samples of my perfect life. The streets of my home Limassol water tank illuminated at nightAlmost as if candle litThe central medieval castle‘Low Red Moon’
Ancient Kourion is a fantastic place, the feel of the Ancient City is definitely still there. You can just imagine locals at the market place, in the baths, cleaning their houses. A lot has been preserved really well. The whole site overlooks the gorgeous Episkopi beach. The ampitheatre is still used for performances, what an incredible backdrop for any live act.
Music does not belong to me, Bahir Al Bakir – Walk From Agadir. I just filmed some short clips on a bike ride in the morning and put them together, I know most of them are shaky but just enjoy ~
Nothing like a city vibe to wake up and go to sleep to.
Perfect day at Macronissos Beach. The Beach has a lot to do, some ancient Tombs, a few restaurants and different coves you can go explore. Not too crowded and the water is amazing. Probably my favourite beach so far.
