Mystery Tour

On a warm Summers day we joined a coach load of Pissourians for this year's Mystery Tour. Our first stop of the day was The Brittania bar in Paphos for a English breakfast.

We the visited Kalogirou candle workshop to see how all the different candles were made and watched them being hand painted.











Our next port of call was, was the Tsangarides winery in the village of Limona, we took a tour of the winery before tasting six wines accompanied by cheese.




















We then moved onto the village of Fyti to visited a weaving museum and a well earned cold drink in the local taverna.

We then headed for our lunch stop but our coach got stuck on a narrow county road and we all had to disembark and walk around 2 kilometers to rejoin the bus.












We finally made it to the Sa Buneri Taverna that overlooks the Evretou reservoir and enjoyed a late lunch before heading home.
