Less than an hour drive from the buzzing seaside town of Pafos, lays the rocky heart of the island of Cyprus: the mountains of Troodos

 

Ancient trees, sun and blue skies.

Shades of green and brown. Beautiful, fertile earth.

The Caledonian Falls. Fresh, cool, cathartic water, flowing from the top of Mount Olympus

The Monastery of St John, in the village of Kalopanayiotis.

Narrow streets and white walls. Afternoon walk in the village of Omodos.
