Driving through the Amalfi Coast, when everyone said not to

Well, technically, I didn’t drive. G did. And he insisted that he wanted to, eventhough every other article online was telling us otherwise. And you know what?

Dinner at Ta Piatakia, Limassol, Cyprus

Prior to our trip to Cyprus, I did honestly very little research on where to go, where to eat, what to do.
