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.

The current situation regarding Paphos airport taxis….

From today’s Cyprus Mail:

Something is to be done about the article a few days ago regarding the allegations of inflated taxi charges from Paphos airport and that some fares were reported to have been more expensive than the cost of a Ryanair flight ticket.

What is the answer?
It seems there will be an inspection of all Paphos taxis over the next few days to check for properly functioning meters that comply with the law.

Sounds like a good move, yes?
It would be – but where else would you give an advance warning that a spot check inspection was about to take place?

Some great comments to read after you’ve got to the bottom of the article too🙂

Meanwhile, here’s a website and a facebook page that may be of interest to regular travellers or clubbers. Check out Taksidi.org  where passengers can “travel together in Cyprus”. It looks like some kind of car and passenger pool service so could just be the thing that may help Cyprus residents.

The site is still under some construction so keep checking back….
