Paphos - Cyprus

The Place: Built on the city where Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born, this was a meaningful spot for Martin and Becky (from a Cypriot family) to get married.
Some features: Spent a great weekend with Martin, Becky and their friends. Paphos is a centre for tourism and offers loads of places to go out and party, aswell as beaches and mountains a short drive away. Being total kids went on a banana ride behind a boat on the sea. Was actually a really cool way to sea the Cypriot landscape, primarily white and yellow cliffs dropping off into the sea, sparse white land dotted with fruit trees and small bushes. The wedding was in an amazing spot secluded from the bustling tourist hangout with great views of the mediterranian hills and seaside.

Cornwall - England

The Place: To where the few English surfers exist, went on a trip to Cornwall with my capoeira group.
Some features: Camped on a hillside that eventually drops off down steep cliffs into the sea. Trained on the beach both Saturday and Sunday. Went to watch and take part in the Batizado of the Cornwall part of our group.
