Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

The Joys of Egypt



Possibly our most favourite of holiday destinations. Certainly it’s one we are always keen to revisit.

Below are a mixed bag of photographs taken on our most recent trip in 2008.

I suppose we do have one gentleman we should be grateful for in consideration of all the work he has done in Egypt. That’s Dr Zahi Hawass.

Anyone who knows anything there is to know about Egypt cannot have failed to have heard about him. You can check out Dr Zahi Hawass’ website here.

  1. All Zahi hawass did was take he took real egyptologists finds for himself, did he do any exploring himself “no” all he has dirtied his hands on is money. corruption got him his Job all this bull about his dreams. all he dreams about is money , now in 20011 proven by 3 court cases against him. I would like to see what is in his house. never mind at least he is like the pharoahs and he will not be able to take his booty into the next life.

    • Hi Tony,

      I believe I have read your blog posts somewhere before and you appear to either be very angry or unhappy in your surroundings. I’m really not certain if that is true? It could just be the way you write or your phrasing….

      You are of course entitled to your opinion as we all are, which is why I have decided to approve your post.

      Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.
