day 11

Hello! Today was our last full day in Cyprus. We took a trip to Vasiliko Port and met with them and VTTV. This meeting focus on the cement making process as well as the transportation of said cement with the ports nearby. We also talked with VTTV’s subsidiary VTTI who stores energy substances like gasoline…

day 10

Today was a relatively free, but fun, day. We had a late wake up time of 11:00 am, which I of course used to its fullest. I woke up around 9:00 am, took a shower, got breakfast before it closed at 10:00 am, and then just chilled in the room until 11:00 am. Today’s agenda…

day 9

Hello! Today was a great day of exploration in Cyprus. The bus left to our first stop, Famagusta, at 7:45 am. This is the Turkish part of Cyprus, which is in the northern part of Cyprus. We had to cross a military checkpoint to enter this part of Cyprus, which was a little scary, but…

day 8

Today started off like any other: 7 am with breakfast at the hotel. At 8:00 am, we went to the University of Nicosia to have a meeting with Fleet Management Limited. It was honestly not the most interesting meeting to me as I am not terribly interested in shipping, but it was cool to learn…

day 6+7

We spent this weekend in Paphos. Saturday was mostly filled with bus rides and exploring Cyprus/Greek culture. We first visited the Kourion archeological site which had an older theater as well as a runied bathhouse that was used for the public after the public bathhouse was destroyed. Next, we visited Aphrodite’s Rock. This was probably…

day 5

Today was finally a day that I did not have to wake up at the dreaded 7:00 am hour. However, I woke up around 4:00 am today for some odd reason. Unable to fall back asleep, I just stayed up until 8:15 am when I took a shower and got breakfast. I got on the…

day 4

Today was the best say far, beating yesterday, the previous winner for the best day so far. Started off at 7:00 am. Got breakfast, got on the bus at 8:00 am. Nothing special so far. We then took a trip into the Troodos Mountains where I saw some pretty cool views. We then went to…

day 3

Today in Cyprus was probably the best day so far. The day started like the last. I got up at 7:00 am, took a shower, and got a quick breakfast. The group then went on a tour of DP World, a company specializing in cargo logistics. The speaker was amazing and gave great insight on…

day 2

The second day at Cyprus was pretty information-packed. The day started at 7:00 am. I scrambled out of bed and went down to get some breakfast at the hotel restaurant, similar to yesterday. The group then got on a bus at 8:00 am to tour Medochemie. The tour started with a presentation about what the…

day 1

First day at Cyprus was solid. I started off the day bright and early at 8:00 am when I went to get breakfast in the hotel. They had meats, cheeses, and baked goods, and it all was amazing. After that, the group went on a tour of the new city. The vibe of Cyprus and…
