A wonderful holiday

I have just returned from a lovely week in Cyprus with Hugh.
Me and Hugh at the top of the Castle in Paphos
I will be trying to catch up with all the blogs I read over the next week and also catch up with Shimelle's new class which I signed up for and then realised that I would be away at the beginning of!

Many thanks for all your kind comments on the posts I had prepared for whilst I was away. I didn't have a 'Smash' book with me for this holiday, but I did use the journal that I made and showed in this post. It was nice to have somewhere to make notes about what we did every day and to have somewhere to store postcards, receipts and ticket stubs.
Me on the beach at the hotel
The hotel we chose to stay at in Paphos was lovely - adults only too! It had its own beach and although it also had its own pool too, we spent every afternoon on the beach, lazing on the sunbeds, reading books and swimming in the sea.
Hugh and me at the 'Tomb of the Kings' in Paphos
We went out every morning sight seeing and there was a lot to see in and around the Paphos area, especially as we had a car to take us to the sights. I took a lot of photos with my DSLR, and Hugh used our compact camera to make sure there were photos of me too. Between us we took over 300 photos in the week! I have been going through them today and managed to delete a few of them that weren't very good! However, I have sent an order for just over 200 to Truprint!

To finish, here are two of my favourite photos of the week. No doubt I will be sharing many more with you over the coming months as I scrap with them!

Sounds like you had a great time. Love that sunset picture and so nice to see a picture of both of you. I'm behind on "Explore" too but hope to catch up a bit next week. Looking forward to seeing the pages you make with those 200 pictures.
