Haagen- Dazs Limassol : Not your typical ice cream parlor

When I think of Haagen-Dazs ice cream , I think of it as a product of quality and luxury. And I would’ve never imagined, that behind it lies a marketing success story, like no other. The  name, which has no meaning, and was mainly used for its Danish sounding, and the fact that the ice cream originated in the USA and not in Europe, make me admire the great strategy behind the brand. So I could not pass the opportunity to visit one of its cafes.

The Buccaneer Pub & Restaurant: Meat lover’s galore

From the outside the Buccaneer is nothing special. A typical pub/restaurant, like many others on the island. Situated in the middle of Episkopi, you wouldn’t  give it a second glance.

However it is the simplicity of the place, that works to its advantage.

Sitting down at the wooden table, we noticed a big fat white cat proudly strolling past us, before settling down at the foot of the table behind us. A few locals were casually sipping their beers.

The whole atmosphere was very relaxed and chill.

Buccaneer

Quite soon a young waiter brought us the menus, which were very straight forward. There weren’t any fancy names or gourmet dishes.

Pastas, burgers, snacks and most importantly a big selection of grilled meat.  And it is the meat, I recommend you try.

Vivienne Sabo – Worth the Hype?

The story behind the brand

The story behind the brand is actually quite interesting. It is a collaboration between a Russian marketing group called Gradient and a make-up factory in Switzerland. According to their press release, Vivienne Sabo was actually a real life person, who was a chemistry student. She was interested in creating new make-up formulas, that were later discovered in her journal, and which are used in the brand’s products today. The beautiful story of her  life ( which to be honest, sounds more like a movie plot) can be found on their official site.

The Limassol Marina

Limassol Marina

The Limassol Marina is one of the most popular places in town. Built in the place of the old port, it definitely gives you a glimpse, of how the city might look like in a few years.

With its luxurious white yachts, modernistic architecture and high-end shops, the it reminds me of Cannes or Monte Carlo.

The beautiful scenery hypnotizes you, giving a sense of serenity and vacation.  Which is probably why it attracts so many people, locals and tourists.
