I enjoyed writing about my holidays in South America (1971/72)

Europe holiday also had lots of excitement when we were caught and held up in Athens during the “war”between Greece / Turkey and Cyprus.

 On 15 July 1974, a coup d’état was staged by Greek Cypriot nationalists[20][21] and elements of the Greek military junta[22] in an attempt at enosis, the incorporation of Cyprus into Greece. This action precipitated the Turkish invasion of Cyprus on 20 July,[23] which led to the capture of the present-day territory of Northern Cyprus in the following month, after a ceasefire collapsed, and the displacement of over 150,000 Greek Cypriots[24][25] and 50,000 Turkish Cypriots.[26] A separate Turkish Cypriot state in the north was established by unilateral declaration in 1983; the move was widely condemned by the international community, with Turkey alone recognizing the new state
