Post Holiday Blues: Ayia Napa, Cyprus

I've been back from Ayia Napa in Cyprus a whole week now and I'm really feeling down and missing the party lifestyle. I've been working everyday since I got home I actually had work just hours after landing back at Gatwick airport and tomorrow is my first day off but I've been neglecting my blog and I had to make sure I spent at least an hour doing some blog maintenance and writing a post for you all. 

My 10 day holiday was far too much fun and so much much happened that I couldn't write a post about everything that happened but I'm going to list you a few of my highlights of the holiday. 

€120 On Alcohol
As soon as we landed and got to our hotel we unpacked, changed out of our plane clothes and headed to the off license with hand luggage suitcase in hand. It was about a five minute walk from our hotel and I remember the place to be cheap. We headed in and got two baskets and got a member of staff to help us. We bought loads of alcohol and pasta, noodles and mixers for the 10 days ahead. We decided to chip in €50 each as a kitty. As we bought so much they actually gave us discount on a lot of items so it was a lot cheaper than it should have been.

iGo Segway Scooters 

This was the biggest highlight of my holiday. The girls went on the segways more than me and I got a little ill and the bumpiness didn't help my tummy. But the days I did go on the segways we had so much fun. They were €5 for half an hour if you bought an hour you'd get extra time. I think overall we spent about 6 hours on the segways over about 5 days of holiday. We drove from our hotel which is by the strip all the way past Nissi Beach and up past the Waterpark and back down towards Ayia Napa Square and even drove through the strip. We got in trouble for driving along the road the first night as we didn't realise we had to stick to the bike lane, to be honest there wasn't a bike lane where we were driving, these went so fast and at one point I was speeding along side a car and I was winning! 

Kandi Beach Party
I loved Kandi Beach Party, considering all four of us hate the beach and sand it was an epic night to say the least. We of got our free t-shirts and headed to our favourite bar before getting the coach to the beach where we had unlimited free drinks for 3 hours. We thought the drinks were watered down and one of the girls decided to get just pure vodka, that's when it hit us! I was the drunkest I had been all holiday. After the main event of seeing Fekky and Angel we had a few more drinks at the hotel before hitting the strip and going to Club Ice where we saw them again.

Ambassaden - Our Favourite Bar
When you fall in love with a bar/club you tend to stick to it - We found Ambassaden on around day 5 and went every night after that. I had been when I went to Cyprus back in 2011 but I didn't really enjoy it as it was a little expensive for just two people but being four girls we got a deal the first night which we ended up getting cheaper and cheaper as the holiday went on. We paid €7 first night and €5 most nights and got two vodka redbulls each, a shot each (not always) and a 'fish bowl' which was more of a bucket and unlimited popcorn! We were totally sold on the salt popcorn which makes you drink more and then eat more and then of course drink more! The staff got to know us and knew we'd always want our 'regular'. The MC at the bar is great too and we had a little chat with him too and had a laugh, it was the once bar you can sit down, relax, listen to music and people watch. We never left that bar sober. We could turn up sober but we'd never leave sober. We'd stay there for a couple of hours before hitting the main club around 2am. 

New Tattoo
I'm sure you saw my post here about my new tattoo well this was a highlight of my holiday too. Both myself and one of the girls got our holiday tattoos. Mine is finally starting to scab and it's in that itchy stage but I've been cleaning and creaming it a few times a day and hopefully it will heal perfectly. It means I've been wearing flip flops come rain or shine! It's not been fun but it has to be done
