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!

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!
