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.

Cyprus Six in Luxor, Egypt


I’d forgotten about this slideshow but was reminded as I was reading a topic on the HolidayTruths forum.

If you’re thinking about taking a visit to the “real” Egypt to see the West Bank of Luxor, the Tombs of the Kings and all it’s monuments and temples – this little slideshow should give you a small taste of the experience.

In September 2010 we flew with 4 close friends from Larnaca airport at 17:30 to Cairo and onwards via an internal flight arriving later the same evening in Luxor with a pre-arranged minibus and driver to collect us to take us to our hotel. We were staying at the Winter Palace Pavillion Hotel which is an annexe to the original Winter Palace Hotel built in the 1860’s.

Take a look at my photos and slideshow below (opens in a new window).

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.

  1. Just watched the show of our holiday and it is fantastic. Lots of memories I had forgotton Helen

    • Us too!

      Then we got round to saying what a great holiday that was because of it being different from the “norm”.

      The photos in the Howard Carter house when we were pretty much the only ones there and getting the hologram show – all for FREE. You have to pay now as they started charging when they opened the restaurant there. But it was such an excellent museum of stuff that we all remembered doing in school.

      We had some fab times in our minibus doing all our own planning of what to do and where to visit. Remember the night at Sofra restaurant and walking back through the town afterwards?

      Ferries across the River Nile at night after dinner, arguments over the price of the beer or tea depending on the time of day in various establishments, our balloon trip while you lot stayed cowering in bed under the duvets.

      I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Nile Cruise next methinks! I’m coming over all Egyptian….
