Cyprus Life – in pictures

My new life in Cyprus in images and words. I'm a British 50 something female, originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) and came to live in Limassol, Cyprus in March 2004. This is my photo blog about my new life as an expat on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Plus other things which catch my attention every once in a while…. Enjoy!

Kokkinorotsos chromite mine and Ayios Nikolaos


I’d forgotten about these photos!

It’s quite a few years since one of our friends, Barry from Pachna village took us up to the top of Mount Olympus so we could follow the Kokkinorotsos Chrome mine trail from the top, down past the mine sheds and pulley system and as far as Ay Nikolaos water plant.

We finished off with a quick view of the old Asbestos mine at Amiandos.

The photos were taken with my mobile (a Nokia 6111) so they aren’t of the best quality…

  1. Unfortunately greed has led to the scrap men destroying the remains of the mines I took you to see. Such a shame.
