Greece. The cradle of modern civilisation and home to lots of classical architecture. Take lots of pictures for me.

How was the flight?

Cyprus is a different country from Greece. Sure, they speak greek here...

I haven't had the chance to bring my camera on the beach yet, or to explore more beautiful beaches. The seashore is very rocky around here and there are few places where it's safe to swim. There's a beautiful beach a few kilometers away from where I stay, and I plan on going there.
Also, do you see the ship in the horizon there? It's actually not very far away, but the photo quality is crap. I will take more pictures with my Nikon. It's a wreckage(doesn't really look so, it seems to be floating) that's been floating there for the past 10 years or so I heard.

The flight? I searched for a place near the porthole to watch the (as I thought) beautiful(as it was confirmed) scenery. I did not expect the huge amount of acceleration when taking off. That was so fucking awesome I felt like a child!
I had weird sensations in my ears, but they did not hurt me, nor did I get clogged ears.

Now I want to buy some swimfins and feel the pleasure of swimming fast!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your first flight and you were safe in your travels!

Don't cheap out if you do buy a pair of swim fins. The cheaper ones 1) don't work as well and 2) hurt your feet if you wear them for more than 30 minutes.

Swimming fast / free-diving is almost as exhilarating as the feeling of accelerating in a plane. It's a wonderful freedom!

Ok, I bought these:

They were 25€ ( I should get slapped for this). Unfortunately the only place I found swimfins had few models, so I was forced to get a 41 size pair(though I don't think it's correct number on them). They are kind of tight, but they should be.

I found a better beach, and soon I'm gonna make some photos.

Tight is good but you don't want too tight or you'll end up with a cut where the top of your foot meets your ankle.

Those look like a sturdy pair. They should treat you well.
Rinse them off with fresh water after they come out of the salt - it'll help to prolong their life

I'm sure Cyprus is/was part of classical Greece. I'm right, I'm only talking about ancient times.

Swim fins? Fairly sure those are flippers mate. :P

Don't mind me. I'm just being a twat.

I thought they were flippers everywhere. Guess not.
