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!

Photo Diary: A Day in Limassol

Sooo, if you’ve been following my Facebook page you may already be aware we’ve had family visitors over the last few days staying with us in sunny Cyprus during their whirlwind tour of Europe from the bright lights of Sydney, Australia.

Tom and Lizi came to us for 6 days after spending a week in cold and wet UK and were pleased to feel a bit of a bit of warmth on their bones before heading off on the next leg of their journey to Paris.

Here’s a selection of photos from Limassol town on Friday 15 November 2013:

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.
