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.

Old Nicosia market opening soon and a quick peep at Buyuk Han

Looks like this could be quite fabulous and you could not want for a better location.

A permanent exhibition to present both an historical and contemporary perspective to the Bandabulya marketplace is being prepared and will be inaugurated soon!

And of course, you cannot fault good old YouTube for leading you on to something else of interest 🙂

I just found a video of one of my most favourite places in the north side of Nicosia! It’s a place we always pop in to have a look around and take photographs when we go through the crossing point at Ledra Street.

Buyuk Han or the Great Inn is an Ottoman building and was originally a traveller’s inn. It’s now a hive of activity for small craft shops, book shops and a couple of cafes. It makes for a very pleasant stop off during a day out behind the green line. The video below was posted on YouTube by: tangojd

Take a look at some of my photos of the Great Inn from one of our many visits.

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. If you like my photos, you can see more of them on Flickr (Thulborn-Chapman Photography): and don't forget to check me out on Twitter too - you can find me: @CyprusPictures aka Fylde Coast Musings Enjoy!
