Final days in Pissouri

Well here we are in the final days of our 3 Month trip to Cyprus, we have had a onderful time, made so many good friends, been to so many interesting places, learnt a great deal about living in Cyprus and the sun shone most of the time.

The people we have met out have been wonderful, so friendly and helpful and full of hospitality.

We both feel that this is the place place we want to live, so when we go home on Saturday we will try to sell our house and make plans for a permenant move to Cyprus.

So we will contiue this blog when we return to the U.K.

Stormy weather

Winter weather arrived in Cyprus with a vengeance this weekend with heavy rain and high winds lashing our area.

One of the large trees in our back garden came crashing down during last nights storm.

Lunch in Omodos

We took off to the mountains and the picturesque village of Omodos, we went with several friends from Pissouri and had lunch at The Katoi restaurant. Omodos village is full of traditional houses and old buildings.

You can wander through the many small lanes that meander through the village The main street still has its original cobblestones. The area is famous for its wineries and we all agreed that we must return on a wine tour.

Mandy's Birthday

This week has found us on a shopping expedition to Limassol, the reason Mandy’s Birthday. We then went to Peyia for a lovely meal at Sophie’s restaurant.

We have also been looking around various apartments and houses with a view to long term renting on our proposed return to the Island.

The weather has been so good here this Winter, we are still able to take walks in glorious sunshine. The only drawback to this is the lack of rainfall for the Island this Winter, leaving the reservoirs at low levels.

"Biscuits"leaving party

Our friend, Chris, who is in the armed forces has been posted back to the UK, so a leaving party was held for him.

The theme of the party was “This is Your Life”, complete with amusing photographs taken throughout his life shown on a overhead projection screen.

There was a very good turnout of Chris’s co -workers and friends and everyone had a good old time and enjoyed a splendid buffet.

We spent part of New Years day walking along the beach front at Pissouri, though the weather was a bit mixed, it was great to be out in the fresh air. We then had to decide when we were going to return to the UK, so we hit the internet and booked our flights for end of January.

We then headed home to try one of Arthur’s famous home made curries.
