On the set of a popular Soap Opera in Cyprus

Loved my time in Cyprus, mostly because of the cool stuff that happened while I was there. We visited some small villages, and happened upon a film crew shooting a popular TV show. As I walked by the set, the Producer asked if I would be part of the next scene. My role was to pretend I was ordering something in the restaurant, while the actors exchanged lines at the table next to me. My guide was amazed that I got to be a part of this scene and a few months later recorded it on his television and sent it to me!

When visiting Cyprus, adventurers enjoy the Troodos Mountains for its skiing, hiking, and natural beauty, as well as the Kato Paphos Archeological Park, one of the most important archeological sites in all of Cyprus.

One unique fact is that Cypriot legend claims that the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born from foam near a rock in present day Aphrodite’s Beach. Making Cyprus the original island of love!

There are roughly 1.2 million people living here and the official languages of Cyprus are Greek and Turkish. The majority of Cypriots practice Orthodox Christianity.
