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!

A short break in “Napa”


Yep, we’ve booked a nice little summer break away for a couple of nights and are Ayia Napa bound.

Two nights at the Tasia Maris Hotel, booked with Thomson holidays as it was offering the best price.  Less than £100 for both of us on half board basis. The added bonus is it’s a Thomson Gold unit which means – NO KIDS!

I’m now trying to find out directly from the hotel if there’s an option to upgrade to All Inclusive or AI Drinks Only package. Does anyone know if this is possible as they haven’t yet responded to my email?

And, I will finally get to see this spot at Nissi Beach which I’ve had my eye on for some months:

Nissi beach, Ayia Napa (shared from cyprusisland.net)

I wish I had seen that spot on my first visit to Cyprus in 1985 :-(

According to Wikepedia, the sandy beach stretches for 500m and runs the length of its own cove. It takes its name from the small islet (Nissi – Νησί in Greek) located close to the coast. The uninhabited islet is easily reached on foot through the shallow waters and its location provides a good shelter for the rest of the beach.

Bring it on!!!
