Turkey - Experience The Melting Pot of Europe and Asia.
Turkey is a very popular destination due to the sheer diversity of culture, people, cuisine and activities that can be found here. There are spectacular mosques, palaces and sultans and harems to be found in the county´s second city Instanbul and of course the bustling hubbub of the Capital city Ankara. Along the coast amongst the resorts and towns and villages there are beautiful golden sand beaches, ancient ruins full of archaeological and historical importance and of course quiet gardens and idyllic harbours such as in Dalyan.
Greece - The Playground of the Gods.
Greece is an amazing holiday destination. It has something for everyone. From paradisical long golden sand beaches to the ruins of the ancient Parthanon on the site of the Acropolis in Athens. The country is spread across a mountainous peninusla and over two hundred inhabited islands, so there really is a destination for everyone here. Spend time enjoying watersports and scuba diving in the busy resorts of Halkidiki or Rhodes and replenish your strength with a some Mezedes and a Moussaka, or simply take a stroll through the numerous peaceful olive groves surrounding Lefkada and then relax in a taberna with a glass of Tsipouro and a hearty Paidakia.
Cyprus - The Island of Aphrodite.
Not only is Cyprus geographically an island of two halves there are also two different ways in which to enjoy this wonderful holiday destination. There is bustling and vibrant Ayia Napa with it´s famous nightlife, great restaurants and all manner of diversions for young and old alike. However in comparison there is a more sedate side to this island. The large area of Polis is a destination with a big heart. The pace of life, is still there to be enjoyed if you want to, but if you want to relax and simply watch the sunset over the Mediterranean Sea over a glass of wine you can do. Cyprus has as many pleasant surprises to discover as there are new experiences to try.
All of these fantastic destinations are a relatively short flight time from the UK and Ireland, so if you planning a holiday this Spring, make sure you consider the wonderful destinations of Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.
