5. Cyprus Friends and New car

Our friends Liza and Dom who live in Pissouri village are now activley searching for suitable accommodation for our proposed Winter in Cyprus.
We have decided that as our plans mean that we are staying in the UK in the short term that we needed to change our car, our old one is 10 years old and it always needs some work doing to it. We went down to our local dealer and got a car that is 18 months old. Its not a big car, it’s a Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec, but its big enough for us and hopefuly will be reliable.
Our first outing in the Car was to the Brecon beacons National

Park in South Wales. The Beacons are an area of outstanding natural beauty.

4. A visit to the Polis/Lachi area

We returned to Cyprus in July 2006. This time we went to the Polis/Latchi area of the island which is North of Pafos. We booked into the Souli Hotel on the seafront of Latchi, it’s a small family run Hotel and all the staff were friendly and Helpful.

This is a beautiful area of Cyprus, much Greener than the other places we have visited. The Polis/Latch area loosk a good area for coastal walks and bike riding…when the weather is cooler.

The sea at this time of year is perfect for swimming in and if you take a boat to some of the more secluded coves then the water in an unbelievable shade of blue.

Our plans for a move to Cyprus had changed slightly, we now intend to hold onto our UK property for now and spend a couple of months in Cyprus this coming Winter. We think this will give a better feel of actualy living on the Island.
