Cape Aspro

As a contrast to the snows of the Troodos we took a stroll over to Cape Aspro which is situated South of Pissouri and offer some beautiful cliff-top walks.
The views from the high cliffs down to the clear blue sea and isolated shingle bays are just stunning.

At this time of year the early Spring flowers are starting to bloom and the well worn trails make for an easy walk.

A trip to the Troodos Mountains

We wrapped up in our warm clothing and took a drive into the Troodos mountains to take in the Winter scenery.
The whole area was covered in a blanket of snow, the roads were clear for the drive and the snow covered scenes made the trip worthwhile.

Pissouri Pines.

We walked over to an area West of Pissouri know locally as "The Pines". This unspoilt area is the perfect for its hiking trails, its mountain and sea views.

The area is dotted with small goat farms and goats freely wander the area is search of grazing.

Wales stun England in Rugby

All the usual suspects gathered down at the Pissouriana for the first round of games in this years six nations. Wales game back to from a 19-6 deficit to win 26-19.

A good deal of good natured banter between the respective fans went on throughout the games, but the Welsh earned the bragging rights for this year and at the final whistle they celebrated by breaking into song.

Snow arrives in Pissouri

A cold snap has arrived in Cyprus and earlier this week and we had a light snow shower. All roads leading up to Troodos from Limassol were reported as closed. Here in Pissouri we get a wonderful view of the snow covered Troodos.
