A trip to North West Cyprus

Along with our friends, Steve and Mary, we took a weekend trip to the North West coast of the island. Our base was the village of Pomos, which has a picturesque fishing shelter next to a small beach.











We took a drive out to the local dam, this is such a peaceful area where the only sound was the gentle trickle of the overflow of water from the Dam.

 

From Pomos we drove on to small town of Kato Pyrgos, this is the start of a dramatic drive to Kampos. The winding road clings to the mountain and takes you through the Tylliria hinterland and follows the deep valley of the Pyrgos river.










The village of Kampos sits in a natural valley and has an Alpine feel to it,  most of the buildings having balconies and the older part of the village  has tiny houses  that huddle together in narrow streets.

I have wanted to go to Greece for a long time. Perhaps one of these days I will get the opportunity to complain about teaching over there...

What lovely views!

It appears you're having a wonderful adventure on Cyprus. Islands are special places, aren't they?

Thanks for the kind comment on An Artist in Paradise; it's very much appreciated.
