7 Days In Cyprus

Chuck together your two best friends, an all inclusive hotel with strong cocktails, complete nuttiness and a special birthday and what do you get? A mental girly holiday of course! We packed our bags and headed to the Paphos region of Cyprus; Sal & Liss have been 11 times between them (!) but this was my first time to the Cypriot coast and it was the perfect place to enjoy an uninterrupted week away from the usual routine that is everyday life.
