With plenty of paints in my bag and an abundance of flowers, leaves, sticks and stones found in the mountains, Georgie and I spent some time creating. Sometimes, a little help from nature is all you need.
Easter in Cyprus is very much about traditions so there really isn’t any better place to celebrate this time of year than up in the mountains at Georgie’s grandparents summer house in the village.
