Cyprus Travel Quotes

Cyprus quotes

I’ve been waiting over 40 years to come to Cyprus, and it has not disappointed – the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Crossroads of Civilization… Joe Biden

In Cyprus, our house was right on the beach. I could walk out of our front door, cross a road, and there was the sea. -Theo Paphitis

Thus weary of the world, away she hies,
And yokes her silver doves; by whose swift aid
Their mistress mounted through the empty skies
In her light chariot quickly is convey’d;
Holding their course to Paphos, where their queen
Means to immure herself and not be seen.”
William Shakespeare

Cyprus quotes

Cyprus has a reputation as a laundromat for the Russians who are trying to avoid sanctions. -Mike Quigley

Two goddesses now must Cyprus adore; The Muses are ten, the Graces are four; Stella’s wit is so charming, so sweet her fair face; She shines a new Venus, a Muse, and a Grace. -Callimachus

The people of Cyprus have sent a strong message… of stability, credibility, and change. -Nicos Anastasiades

If Aphrodite chills at home in Cyprus for most of the year, then Fez must be the goddess’s playground. –Raquel Cepeda

The man tilted back his head, raised his eyebrows, cast his eyes to heaven, pouted his lips, and said, “Tch!”
“That performance,” said the chief, “is the Cypriot way of saying ‘No’….”  –Peter Paris

Cyprus quotes

Lawn as white as driven snow; Cyprus black as e’er was crow; Gloves as sweet as damask roses. -William Shakespeare

5 Things to Pack for Cyprus


Greece - Crete - Stephanie Luggage

The Lonely Planet Cyprus guidebook for your trip. It can be hard to find big, international guidebooks once you land (or they’ll be way overpriced). Get yours ahead of time, either a hard copy or on a Kindle.

Beach Bag: You can throw everything in a canvas tote bag or a multi-purpose day bag like this large Longchamp that I use as a purse on the road and a beach bag when needed.

Go Pro: If you have one, bring it here. You’re going to want to get underwater photography at most of the beaches.


Full-Sized Travel Towel: This towel is the perfect travel towel to have for both using at your hotel/hostel but also taking to the beach since it’s so big and beautiful. Rolls up small and comes with its own pouch so it takes up almost no room in your beach bag. Seriously, I’m obsessed with my travel towel.

Water shoes or sandals that can handle rocks, since many of the beaches here have underwater rocks. I use these Travel Jellies.


Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance!

Before you leave for Cyprus make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road. I pay for World Nomads, and I happily recommend them. It’s especially important to get travel insurance if you’ll be enjoying the great outdoors or Cyprus’s famous nightlife.


I have been a paying customer of World Nomads for travel insurance for three years, and I happily recommend them.  If you get sick, injured, or have your stuff stolen, you’ll be happy to have the ability to pay for your medical bills or replace what’s stolen or broken.
