Were those caves a bit scary? Did the turtles look really cute on Lara beach? Did Cyprus throw up some stunning scenery for us all to enjoy? Oh yes...

Tsada The Scenic Way


As Paphos Life comes to the end of it's second year, it is time for our now annual roundup of blogs. We published nearly 100 blogs last year, believe it or not, and this is a selection of some of our favourites. Each picture will have a link to the blog it came from.

Ezousa Washout

On our numerous visits to the dam over the last few days, we have also taken the opportunity to explore the countryside between the Asprokremmos and Polemi.

Would I rescue some German tourists? The short answers are badly, ish, no and yes. For a more in-depth discussion, read on.
