Time to get on our Travels : Day 1.

To Escape the cold Winter weather in Cyprus we decided to pack our bags and head for warmer climes. We had a couple of last minute hiccups as the car due to take us to the airport broke down, but we managed to get a replacement.

Last night we found out that  a last minute change to our itinery had been made by the tour company, so it was a flurry of last minute emails and phone calls to sort it out and make the changes...a bit stressful to say the least.

We boarded the Emirate flight on a Boeing 777-300ER to Dubai at 19.30 and this was the first time we had flown with Emirates and we were very impressed withe the standard of service, entertainment and the standard and quality of the plane.

The flight to Dubai took just over 3 hours and was extremely comfortable.  Mileage was 1503 Miles

A Cold Snap

The Month of January ends with a cold snap  hitting the Island of Cyprus  with temperatures hitting close to zero here in Pissouri and heavy snow in the Troodos mountain.

Due to the Cold mornings, Rob had to don on his Winter training gear for his early morning circuits.

Mandy's Birthday Lunch

The day began with a visit to The Vintage Cafe to attend the regular meeing of the Paphos Scooter club.

We then made our way up to the village of Nata and had a lovely Lunch at The Periklis Tavern. The one thing we all noticed on the way up to Nata was the colour of the countryside, after all the recent rain the usually bare land has  turned into a sea of colour.

Our final stop of the day was The "Grape and Grain" in Pissouri bay and the sounds of Glen Barnes

After the Rains

Well, 2017 started off with a week of wet weather with some heavy storms hitting the Island. As soon as we got a break in the weather we headed down to Pissouri bay to blow away the cobwebs with a walk along the seafront.
