Paphos to Crete.

Not my usual style but here goes, a tourist day trip..

The flyer looks better than reality, run by some fun guys but can’t help thinking “how much white powder” !

With only a day to see stuff it’s all crammed in, bumpy too.

The others couldn’t bear to be separated from their inflatable pool toys. Deffo missed out, Caroline and I had a blast.

Stoll around the town, like it, got a refreshing vibe, not OTT nor tacky, not a piss head in sight.

Met Brock on the airport bus had a chat and a coffee he is from Vancouver but living in Moscow visiting Cyprus for his regular Visa run, interesting bloke.

Usually the smoking room is a dirty pit with no seats. Treated like a normal member of society here not a Leper.

Lovely hotel, close to the airport.

Just incase all that bored you, here is a cute kitten I spotted.

Paris

If the signage and half scale Eiffel tower didn’t give it away, you would still have no problem identifying the theme of this resort. It is France and you can feel it most anywhere you go in the casino and hotel. Whether you love or loathe the place will probably have a good deal to do with how much that theme appeals to you. If you walk around and study the details, it is quite well executed. Beyond that, it’s just another casino. The hotel, however, is surprisingly good. It feels classy and the rooms have a romantic quality to them, particularly those most recently remodeled. There’s the usual mix of bars, restaurants and activities here and they are all above average. And it’s a great location, unless you hate crowds. Everybody seems to walk through the place or by the place at least twice a day. You probably will too!

The best hotels for a staycation in Singapore

(Source: www.timeout.com)

You’ll never go hungry here. Start off with lunch at J65, the hotel’s main restaurant that serves international and local cuisine. Then move on to dinner at Ah Hoi’s Kitchen, which whips up local delicacies like chilli crab and char kway teow. And if you check into the Club room, you can snack on complimentary drinks and snacks at the 24/7 Club Lounge. But hit up happy hour from 5 to 7.30pm when there’s free flow red and white wine, housepours and beers, as well as a selection of canapés. Otherwise, head to Rumpoles Bar. Every day from 5pm, there are free fried chicken wings that you can use to pad your tummy while enjoying the one-for-one housepour promo during the same time. Still feeling peckish? Head to the 24-hour Jen’s Kitchen On-the-Go for light bites and good coffee. If you’re up for exploring, just borrow one of the Tokyobikes from the reception – they’re free to guests from 7am to 10pm – and cycle to Botanic Gardens, less than 10 minutes away.
