Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

“Welcome to the Nauru International Airport” a wooden sign reads.

I have traveled half the globe to the world’s smallest island republic. It’s 21 kilometers square. If you drive at the national top speed of 25 mph, you could circle the island in less than an hour. The air is clean, the breeze is salty soft. The weather is absolutely perfect.

The first person I see is a 10-year-old boy. Emblazoned across his T-shirt is the image of an American rap star, Lil Wayne. Seriously, American pop culture must be the most predominant force on the planet, next to pollution and poverty.

Read the full report here.

  • Nauru is the smallest island nation on the planet
  • It was recently very wealthy but now is destitute
  • Soon Nauru will lead a group at the U.N. working to slow climate change
  • CNN iReporter Johnny Colt took a tour of the place and its peculiar character and challenges
