A visit to The Aphrodite's Rock Brewery and Our Arabian Video

A hazy dust cloud hung over this part of Cyprus as we  made our way up to the Aphrodite's Rock brewery which lies just North of Paphos.

 Set in a valley the brewery has a nice garden area where you can sample the beers and ciders made  on the Site. They also serve up very tasty food which is  all very good value for money.

The owner also gives an indepth tour of the brewing house and the process of ale production in this micro brewery.

and here is short video of our recent trip to Arabia..............

Day 26 - Leaving South Africa

On a beautiful Summer's morning we took a stroll around Company gardens in Cape Town it has a lovely cafe in the heart of the gardens and we enjoyed coffee and cake before watching a local  couple get married.

We h0pped in a cab and took the twenty minute drive to the airport in light traffic. At the airport we were surprised how quiet it was, no other passengers at check in or security, so it was a breeze to go through. We decided on one last treat before our Emirates flight so we checked into the Bidvest Premier Lounge.

The combined travelling time to get home to Cyprus was over 20 hours we arrived to blue skies, tired but happy.
