In the end of August, I went to Cyprus with my boyfriend. We went to Protaras/Fig Tree Bay, and the purpose of the trip was to relax on the beach. Honestly, that was also the only thing to do in the area, as it is built for tourism and there is nothing else to see or do. The main streets are full of overpriced restaurants and souvenir shops, but it was a nice place to relax for a week. But, as the travel geek I am, I wanted to see a bit more of the island. We had planned to rent a car and drive around the country – but as I got sick after the first day, we decided to take it easy. Instead of renting a car, we rented a “buggy car” and drove along the east coast of Cyprus for one day.
