    Wouldn’t be easier to buy a guidebook for that country and have all the information grouped in one place? Searching a lot of sights and trying to figure out what authority they have is time consuming.

      I think guidebooks and travel blogs serve different purposes. You can certainly get a lot of good info from a guidebook, but blogs often go into more detail and have more pictures, plus reading someone’s personal experience can be really helpful. And this is a travel site you’re commenting on, so I imagine you were looking for something you didn’t think you could find in a book.

    As a Canadian citizen, can I spend 3 months in Cyprus and then enter the Schengen zone for 90 days.

      Hi Edward! I’m not a visa expert, but according to this site, Canadian citizens can travel to Cyprus for 90 days. Schengen allows for 90 days within a 180 day period, so yes, it looks like you’d be able to spend 90 days in Cyprus and then travel within the Schengen Zone for up to 90 days. It’s usually worth giving yourself a couple days buffer in case of flight delays or other unforeseen circumstances that could potentially push you over the 90 days.

      Glad to help! Enjoy your trip! I think you’d be fine traveling solo to Phuket though, you can book a few day tours and have a group of people to hang out with, and traveling by yourself can be really liberating and great for confidence.
