Cyprus Life – in pictures

My new life in Cyprus in images and words. I'm a British 50 something female, originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) and came to live in Limassol, Cyprus in March 2004. This is my photo blog about my new life as an expat on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Plus other things which catch my attention every once in a while…. Enjoy!

Can you spot the difference?


A bit of a change in the weather today – quite a different view from that we had on Sunday 13 April 2014.

What do you reckon?

It’s hard to believe that on Sunday we had glorious blue skies with not a cloud in sight….

These below were taken on Sunday 13 April whilst waiting for our English Breakfast to arrive at the Buccaneer Pub in Erimi village, Cyprus:

And today, Tuesday 15 April 2014 – I drove to work with heavy skies behind me and over the sea towards Akrotiri. This is my view on arriving home from work this evening:

So, we’re hoping the weather will pick up again for our friend Kathy’s arrival on Good Friday when she will be here for a couple of weeks over the Easter holidays, although it looks like we won’t be able to make any promises. Here’s the long term weather forecast for Limassol district of Cyprus from Accuweather for the next 10 days:

Fingers crossed that the weather pattern will change (I don’t hold any great faith in weather predictions for more than 3 days ahead when you live on a Mediterranean island) and it will be more like this instead:

Limassol seafront walk – February 2013


    

Weather was a bit mixed today in “sunny” Cyprus so we had to take our chances on our plans for the day with my parents during their winter holiday….. However, it stayed dry and we managed a walk along the promenade at the old end of the town seafront and on the pier.

We walked across towards Limassol castle and sat at the Cavallieri cafe bar for a well earned cuppa before strolling to the car park via the back streets and the renovated Turkish baths (hamam).

Another beautiful day again in sunny Cyprus so what better to do with it than take a visit to our local beach at Curium – a mere 10 minute drive from our home.
We had a stroll up the beach as far as the Sunshine Restaurant at the far end by the cliffs before returning to the Kourion Beach Restaurant for a drink, something to eat and read in the warm sunshine.
Let’s hope we may get the chance to get out and about in the sunshine tomorrow, or could this be our last visit of the year?
