The North and South
Cyprus is an island that is divided between the Turks in the North and the Greeks in the South. I think the North looks really nice, but it's guarded by UN peacekeepers and it has a water shortage. No wonder the vacation houses are so cheep! Juergen says he would feel better about going to the Greek South. It is part of the EU. So now I am looking at the South. It cost more. You don't get the space (it looks crowded). I did find one very cool looking villa with a pool. I emailed the owner to see what it cost. It's probably a case of "if you have to ask you can not afford it". When you are a family of 7, you have to ask about the cost! You can get a flight to Cyprus from Germany for under 300€. That is a great price…but again, we have 7 people!
