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!

Last Christmas the employees in the company I work for in Cyprus were all surprised by receiving a complimentary hotel stay for 1 night at either the Annabelle or the Almyra Hotel in Paphos.

This weekend 12 April, we decided to take up the offer and stayed at the Almyra Hotel. This is the ultra modern looking hotel and while all the staff were exceptionally friendly and polite, we found after we had taken a look around the Annabelle we feel that would have been more suited to our traditionalist tastes. But as a one off and certainly, we would never have paid those prices – it was a very pleasant stay.

Here are the photos we took during our stay at the Almyra Hotel (Thanos Hotel group) and from our walk along the coastal footpath behind Paphos harbour.

The next morning we drove to Akamas peninsula to see the island at St George, the Gorge and the shipwreck of the Edro III at Sea Caves.
