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.

Larnaca, Cyprus – a whistle stop tour

Leave a comment

Larnaca is situated in the East of the island and is approximately an hours drive from our home on the West side of Limassol.

We are very fond of Larnaca and spent 3 happy weeks there during the winter of 1992. It was my (then) boyfriend’s (now) husbands first visit t to the island and we have fond memories of the apartment we stayed in just off the roundabout between Police Station by Finikoudes seafront and the old part of the port heading towards the Dhekalia Road.

If we didn’t have the need to work, we reckon Larnaca would be a place we could see ourselves settling down in but sadly, there isn’t so much in the line of work for expats there. It’s getting better so you never know – one day!

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire.
