Kirsten's Journey to Cyprus

Current Location

Nicosia Cyprus

Join me on my journey to sunny Cyprus! I'm thrilled to be teaching English, exploring the island, learning all about Cypriot culture and sharing my experiences with you.


Έλα! (Come!) Join me as I journey from Cyprus’s lively capital city, Nicosia, to the seaside town of Paphos. Are you ready for some fun in the sun? Καλό ταξίδι! (Have a good trip!)


Welcome to my journal! Here’s a “snapshot” to introduce myself. I haven't shared my journal before, but I’m glad to do so with such a special group of travel buddies. Χάρηκα! (Nice to meet you!)

Field Notes

Are you hungry? If not, you will be soon because we’re going to spend some time in the kitchen today whipping up (making) one of my Cypriot favorites: ταχινόπιτες (tahinopites, or tahini pies)!


Since Cyprus is strategically located between Europe, Asia, and Africa, it has long attracted foreign powers eager to control the island and shape its rich history, including that of its capital city!
