Sad Vibes :'(

Today was our last full day in Nicosia! We all got tested for COVID this morning and all of us were negative. I wouldn’t have been completely upset if I would have been stuck in Cyprus for another week. Right after testing, we went to Larnaca to enjoy the beach. I swam all the way…

Last Company Visit!

Today ended up being our last company visit! We were supposed to have one tomorrow but unfortunately it was canceled. We got to sleep in today which was very nice. We left the hotel at around 11. I immediately noticed how tall and cool the building was. A lot of our visits have not been…

Famagusta Day!

We got an early start today and headed towards Famagusta. Due to Famagusta being militant occupied we had to have our passports to cross into that part of Cyprus. Famagusta was invaded by Turkey and is technically not part of Cyprus anymore. We got to be some of the first people to walk through the…

Lectures, lectures, lectures

We had a company visit this morning with Fleet Management Limited at the University of Nicosia followed with two lectures in the afternoon. One of them was about cryptocurrency and the other one was about blockchain and forecasting. Starting with FML, they have been operating for 28 years and are the 2nd largest third party…

Sunscreen? Never Heard of Her!

As the title implies I might be a little sunburnt, sorry mom. Aside from that I had such a fun day! My roommate Sam and I woke up at 5am to watch the sunrise on the beach. We walked to the same beach we went to last evening with our other friends. The sunrise wasn’t…

Paphos!?

Today was by far my favorite day. It was very long, but we visited a lot of cool cultural and historical sites. Unfortunately it was a little but cloudy but the sites were gorgeous nonetheless. The first place we went to was the Kourion Archeological site. Some of the first homes built in the area…

First Day in Larnaca!

Today was our first trip to Larnaca. It was also our first trip to the beach! Before the beach though, we had a company visit with Vasiliko Port (VTTV) executives. The managing director, operations director, and customer service manager all gave us a short presentation about the company. I found the cement part of the…

Ports and more!

Today was another trip to Limassol. (Surprise- we left at 8am) First we had a company meeting with Dubai Ports World. We heard from two of their employees about their operations in general and got to see some of the facility. DPW only has 74 employees which I found interesting. The job that DPW fulfills…

Boats and Mountains

Today was another trip to Limassol. We left bright and early at 8am again and arrived at the Maritime Training Center for our tour. We first learned some background about the business and what kinds of cargo they ship. The students who are trained there live in the facility. We were informed that some of…

Cyprus Means Business

Starting at 7am with breakfast, today was filled with lots of information and traveling. We departed the hotel at 8am and headed to Limassol. Medochemie- the first company visit of the trip- is headquartered in Limassol. The bus ride was very beautiful. We drove past mountains and rolling hills and along the coast. During the…

Tours galore!!

Today was our first full day in Cyprus! We started with a good breakfast and a walking tour of downtown Nicosia. It was very beautiful and we were able to see some modern architecture that included a lot of curves and interesting stairs. We also saw some parts of the original Venetian walls. It was…
