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!

I’m getting a little scared, Paphos is becoming popular…


It’s quite amazing really to think we’ve been living on a permanent basis in Cyprus for more than 10 years now and yet I can probably count the number of occasions we’ve stayed overnight in Paphos on the fingers of one hand!

Suddenly, it seems to be on our list of places to go….

We were there for a single night in November last year (2013) while we had family visitors over from Sydney, Australia but only for a short duration so it was a bit of a whirlwind tour of Cyprus for them. We stayed at the Dionysos Central Hotel on the corner of Poseidonias Avenue near to the seafront (almost opposite Pizza Hut). See below (centre back in the photo…

Then just last month (April) we had a friend over from UK for a couple of weeks “Miss Kathy” – you may have seen reference to her in some of my other posts. So off we went again and stayed just one night at The Annabelle Hotel (a beachfront hotel) and listed as a 5 star hotel in Paphos.

I’m not entirely convinced of the 5 star rating but it was very pleasant overall and we had an interesting experience there exploring tombs – outside of the hotel, in the hotel grounds and surprisingly, also beneath the hotel foundations!

And now it looks like we’re heading westwards again!

We’re off to an amazing first event which I understand will be repeated each weekend for the near future.
Trust me, this news for Cyprus is BIG!

Epiphany holiday in Cyprus – 6 January


A public holiday for me means getting out and about and either revisiting places, exploring new villages or heading to the beach in Cyprus. A lot depends on the time of year and the weather, of course!

Some of my favourite photos taken in Pissouri last Monday…. a nice long weekend for me and the third short week in a row. Dammit, from this week it means 4 and a half days in work until the next public holiday! Roll on Monday 3rd March :)

I never make resolutions for New Year simply because I don’t really agree with the forces of “having to do….”

But for 2014 I decided to break my own rule and I’ve made my New Year’s Resolution – to visit the beach as often as possible!

We decided to start as we meant to go on – so here you are, proof we went to the beach at Ancient Kourion (Curium Beach, Episkopi, Limassol in sunny Cyprus), this morning 1st January 2014.
