5 Days In Northern Cyprus: Day 3 – All The Thyme In The World

Villa Lembos

It was time to ignore the irresistible pull of the sun loungers outside our villa (that’s mine nearest to camera – the white one with dinky red pillow…ready and waiting…). Time to explore the village.

We headed towards the flagstaffs. Two flags flying together in Northern Cyprus is a common sight – the red one is the Turkish flag and the white one represents the Turkish Republic Of Northern Cyprus.

It was a hot day and fortunately we were forced to stroll as the walking pace was dictated by the locals:

Goats, Dipkarpaz

We were happy to amble and take in the surroundings.

Before I could become reunited with that sunlounger I had to earn it. There was some serious walking to be done. Here we go…

The carpet of greenery here is wild thyme – as we scuffed through the clumps the air was filled with the intense scent.
