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.

Greek Independence Day in Limassol Old Town – 25 March 2013

Leave a comment


Yes, you’ve guessed it!

Greek Independence Day is also celebrated in Cyprus – it’s another public holiday…. We have 3 in a row in Cyprus (18th, 25th March and 1st April which is also known as EOKA Day).

We decided to have a change for Greek Independence Day and chose to head off into Limassol Old Town for the afternoon rather than making for our usual spot at Curium Beach and the Kourion Beach Restaurant. After all, one can’t allow Marinos “the best waiter in town” to get too complacent regarding our visits! 🙂

So, below are a few photos of the day:
