Cyprus Life – in pictures

My new life in Cyprus in images and words. I'm a British 50 something female, originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) and came to live in Limassol, Cyprus in March 2004. This is my photo blog about my new life as an expat on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Plus other things which catch my attention every once in a while…. Enjoy!

It’s time to vote for Cyprus and GUABA


Guaba – find it on Limassol seafront. It’s where the “in-crowd” go to see and be seen!

I think I just went back to the Eighties!


Or had an out of body experience!

Ever got on the track of something you haven’t seen or heard for sometime and then get completely lost and engrossed in it?

It happened to me today….

I take part every so often in a song chain thread on a particular forum I visit which involves following up with another song that has a word from the previous song posted in the title.

So following up on the song “Strange Brew” by Cream led me to post “People Are Strange” – not by The Doors as you may well imagine but the soundtrack for one of my all time favourite movies “The Lost Boys“. So I posted the track which was covered by Echo & The Bunnymen.

And that’s when I found myself “lost in music” or so to speak.

I came across a whole shed load of Echo tracks on YouTube and abandoned myself with glee :-)

One of my most favourite songs: “The Back of Love“. Just click through the image below to enjoy it!

I got Lost in Music today...

Fancy a quick peep at The Lost Boys trailer? Go on, it’s got Kiefer Sutherland in it – it would be very rude not to take a look!

Sorry, I can’t help it….. I really got hooked on 80′s music.

My misspent youth at Legend, a nightclub in Manchester, UK (on Princess Street) every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday morning each week was the bane of my parent’s life and probably added a few early grey hairs for them wondering what I got up to….. :-(

Legend – Manchester’s Other Club . (Click the image for more info)

I did go to the Hacienda club on occasion and saw John Foxx (formerly a lead singer with Ultravox) perform there one night, but Legend was definitely the place to be for me! Or, as me and my friends referred to it “Leg Ends”….

Nights Out in Cyprus, a set on Flickr.

One of the first social events organised by Paul (the Social Secretary) at the Aphrodite Bowling Club on Saturday 30 June 2012.
A country and western themed evening. Not my favourite music but luckily no razor blades were needed so no blood was spilled.
Cost €3 entry per person, a singer and karaoke, a raffle and the food was fabulous!
