A Beautiful Week Holidaying and Visiting Family in North Cyprus

August 2, 2023

I have just returned from my second trip to North Cyprus this year. This time I took my husband and our children. They have been before but not for many years and they were too young to remember much so I thought it was time to return and make some new memories with them. So while I’m suffering with major holiday blues I thought I would document our holiday in an old school blog post. This time last week I was in 40 degree glorious sunshine and today I am watching the rain through the window and it is 20 degrees. There is no such thing as summer in the UK at the moment.

I did share daily mini vlogs over on my TikTok account @lifewithpinar just sharing snippets of our days.

Flying to North Cyprus via Turkey

We arrived in North Cyprus just in time for the most glorious sunset after travelling most of the day from London Gatwick. Unfortunately, you cannot fly direct to Ercan Airport, North Cyprus and have to travel to Turkey to get a connecting flight. On this occasion we flew to Antalya and then on to Kibris (North Cyprus).

Returning to my Second Home

My mum and Nene (nan) picked us up from the airport and in 30 minutes we were walking into my mums Air B n B apartment she had got ready for us. Recently renovated, my mum allowed us to use it for our little holiday and it was just like a home away from home. When we arrived, we unpacked our luggage and had a well needed shower. Even though it was late, we had a quick late night snack before heading to bed for what felt like a deep long sleep, ready to wake up and start the holiday all refreshed the next morning. Here is the next 5 days of our holiday in most photos.













Like any holiday, the 5 days flew by but we had the most amazing time. I love staying in my mums newly renovated apartment and if you are looking for somewhere to stay in North Cyprus, please check out Hanife Sun Apartments on Air BnB for the ultimate luxury home away from home apartment and fabulous host.

Until next time,
