Dream Destination Number One: Paphos

Have you ever wondered what it is like to travel to a place rich in culture, tradition and characters which are far different from those that you are accustomed to? Well, I have. In fact traveling to far-flung areas and exploring what other countries and cities have to offer is one of my life-long dreams. To some, the idea may seem far-fetched. But for me, I intend to work hard to finally realize that dream in the near future.

Now you may be wondering where I plan to hie off to given the chance. Once place I would love to visit is Paphos, a coastal city southwest of Cyprus. I think I have this uncanny affinity to things Greek – Greek gods and goddesses, Greek mythology, Grecian cities. I even love Grecian inspired clothing! Anyway, Paphos is one city that boasts of crystal clear waters and awesome seaports. I don’t know about you but for me there is something mysterious about strolling along the beach in the dark of night with only the glittering lights from nearby ships, docks and houses illuminating the way.

Since I plan to one day avail of cheap flights to paphos, I have decided to find out more about the place. More than what I have read in one magazine. I have found out that it is referred to as “the home of Aphrodite” being that it is said that the said Greek goddess emerged from the sea of Paphos. The city is slowly regaining its position as a major port which it lost during the British rule and now it is evolving as a major tourist center. Dams and proper roads have been built, and money has been spent on development of hotels, restaurants and luxury villas to attract tourists. All these make me want to visit the place even more!
