Episode details

Greetings from Larnaca, Cyprus.

This week, we found ourselves in a seaside resort with the Russians. The signs are in Cyrillic. Borscht is on the menu — but also very good Greek food. I had no idea this place existed.

Have you ever visited a place where you were not the target demographic? That’s our question of the week. In this podcast, I’ll share the funny anecdote of a family that accidentally booked an LGBT theme cruise. (There was this incident in an elevator …)

Here are a few photos from this week’s adventures:

Here are the boys in front of St. Lazarus Church in Larnaca. It’s a stunning Greek Orthodox Church. St. Lazarus is buried in the catacombs, which you can visit.

Here’s the tomb of St. Lazarus. Watch your head, Aren.

The chill downtown of Larnaca. Small shops and restaurants. Charming.
