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!

HolidayTruths forum – finally gone?


It’s a sad day for users of the HolidayTruths forum website as it finally looks like the demise has come about today, Friday 13th April 😦

The forum has had its’ days numbered since finding out its’ founder Van has family issues due to illness but sadly, information from that department has been very lacking and the forum moderators have been doing their best to carry on but in darkness.

The last we heard was that the subscription was paid up until 12th April (yesterday) and now nobody can access the forum today.

One of the members and moderators of HolidayTruths, Sanji has put up a video loop on Twitter today:

At the moment there is an option of going to the OffTopicLounge which was an offshoot of the HolidayTruths forum and as far as I’m aware it can be accessed from http://www.offtopiclounge.co.uk/

A very sad day for all past users as there was tons of useful holiday information, hotel reviews and tips available for old and new members.

HolidayTruths - as we remember it.

Bye, bye from
Shell, Limassol, Cyprus 😦

    • Hi Ady
      I know…. There was so much information that people have posted over the years that’s now gone forever. I used to frequent a number of different areas of the forum but didn’t realise until it disappeared just how many parts of it I did visit 😦
      Have you gone over to the OTL site?

  2. Hello,

    I may have a way to revive the site if anyone can help me get hold of Glynis or Cath Hubbard?

    I used to have Glynis email address, however its long stopped working.


    • Can you give me your Username from HolidayTruths website and maybe I can try to get hold of a contact for you?

      At the moment they are using the OffTopicLounge which was an offshoot of HolidayTruths site http://www.offtopiclounge.co.uk and it’s by invitation only. As far as I’m aware some members were contacted and given details of how to access the site (I was).

      The only way to get on now if you don’t have any email from them is by passing your Username through another member and they will send a code valid for 24 hours.

      • Eeek, now there’s a question. I havent logged on for a long while. I am sure my username was one of two. Crustyfur or Lankygit. However, not sure what emails are even attatched to the accounts. Hmm. I have the means to get the site back up very quickly, I just can’t get in contact with anyone.

      • I’ve passed the email address forward that you commented from to one of the Moderators but that’s as much as I can do from the “outside” so to speak…. Writing as an ordinary member.

  3. Thank you. Fingers crossed.
