Girne itself was quite busy, plenty of tourists wandering about. It is the centre for tourism in Northern Cyprus and there were visitors from all over Europe there. Along the harbour front there are a lot of tavernas, restaurants, bars, serving everything from traditional Turkish food to fresh fish, Greek moussaka, and anything else you can think of.

After I left my hotel room yesterday morning I had a bit of time before I needed to be in Nicosia. I walked along Larnaca’s sea front for a while and then visited the castle. As it clouded over and started to rain I went to find a café for a drink. It was only […]

Morning! Καλημέρα από την Κύπρος. I arrived in Cyprus last night after a flight of almost 5 hours from Gatwick to Larnaca. It was Sunny when we left Gatwick but was dark by the time we landed, just after 19:50 local time. I’ve rented a car for the weekend which I picked up at the […]

Boat Trip by Bus

Our last day was meant to be spent on a boat. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great – although the Sun was shining, it was extremely windy: more than just a gentle breeze particularly on the East coast of the island.

On Saturday evening we drove over to the West coast of Skopelos, for a late afternoon swim at Μηλιά/Milia, before driving along to Πάνορμος/Panormos to have dinner at a spot where we could see the sunset.

Thursday was a cool and overcast day, and the wind was up. Not really a beach day, so in the morning we went in to town to have a proper walkabout there, have a drink with a view, and top up on supplies.

Σκόπελος: The Island of Mamma Mia

Σκόπελος/Skopelos is the island on which Mamma Mia was filmed several years ago (was it really as far back as 2008!?). In fact, our accommodation in Στάφυλος/Stafylos was where some of the cast and crew stayed during filming.

Skopelos Warms Up

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Ιούλιος 25, 2017 – 12:20 πμ

There are several tavernas along the beach front in Agnondas and we chose the ‘Mouria’ to eat at. It was still daylight and not long past 7 by the time we left the beach to go and eat – early for us as we usually don’t eat until 8.30/9 by which time the sun has already set.
