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.

It’s a long time since we were last in Ayia Napa and I have to say it made a very pleasant change to see a holiday resort that actually looks complete.

No building work, no empty or derelict shops, a clean and tidy resort, providing tourism at it’s best with unspoilt beaches and azure seas.

I think I want to move house….. What a shame I have to work 😦

Both Paphos and Limassol should take a leaf from Napa’s book and make an asserted effort to tidy their tourist areas up.

No more scruffy shop fronts or crappy frontages of closed businesses on Bar Street in Paphos and the tourist “strip” of Limassol. Give us some “proper” pavements and walkways, and make the most of what Cyprus has to offer.

However, the East coast has always had the best of the coastline in my estimation and couple that with gorgeous beaches it’s no wonder Ayia Napa is alive with tourists.

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.
