This is the audiobook of my tenth travel memoir, Catchy Cyprus: Once was the Island of Love, first published in November 2019. I travelled around the amazing and historic Mediterranean island of Cyprus a few months before, and report back on my experiences.
This is a short book based on my visit to Cyprus, the island that copper’s named after. A former British possession in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is divided into Greek-dominated and Turkish-dominated regions with United Nations troops in between. A surprisingly large amount of the island remains under the Union Jack as well. Cyprus is the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love and also famous since ancient times for its mines. Today the island thrives on tourism and a developed industrial economy. It suffers, however, from a strategic location in the Mediterranean, which has long made it a pawn for outside powers. Few countries combine so much scenery with so much history, all in one compact place!
The paperback / Kindle version, which is currently for sale on Amazon, has a great many photos and maps. You can look at these images in an enclosed colour PDF which comes with the audiobook files.
