We went on a road trip, on a bit to rediscover a lost islander identity. We wanted to feel, first hand, what does being surrounded by water does to the soul. 648 km later, we know. For five days we zigzagged the Cypriot coastline, under the scorching Mediterranean sun, walked on the same soil are forefathers toiled away, surrounded by that same sea which defined generations and generations of Cypriots, creating a unique culture of sharing and living well.
