Cyprus was our Country of the Week. We explored the history of this fascinating Mediterranean island from before the Romans all the way to the current division between the Turkish North and Greek South. Learn more HERE.

Our Travel Guide discovered the beautiful beaches, picturesque mountain villages, vibrant cities, and ancient ruins that dot the Cypriot landscape. It’s easy to see why Cyprus is such a popular destination! Start your journey HERE.

Once again, we circled back to the euro in this week’s Currency Spotlight. While the Turkish lira may be used throughout Northern Cyprus, the euro remains the official currency of the country. Read more HERE.
