We went to the coast near Polis a few days ago for a chilly dip. We took a scenic route back through Droushia, and stopped to enjoy the view. We couldn't help but notice the spring flowers, and blossom in the trees, and fortunately Alex had her camera...
The Road From Droushia
We have always liked Droushia. There is something a little bit magical about the village. Perhaps it is because the roads seem to change each time we visit? Or perhaps it is the surrounding countryside, which possesses a unique quality somehow slightly different from the rest of Cyprus? It is certainly a great place to go if we are ever feeling homesick for the old country, as its landscape reminds us of parts of the British countryside.
The almond blossom is arriving early this year, thanks to a very mild winter.
This is what I mean about reminding us of the British Countryside. This could very easily be somewhere in Dartmoor, with the low cloud scudding in from the sea.
As I mentioned in the intro, Alex is taking all the pictures for this blog. So expect plenty of flowers and close-ups.
To The Helmet
I spent most of my time sat to the left of this shot, planning more ace content for the website. We have written over 350 blogs on Paphos now, and are running out of new places to go. Indeed, this isn't the first time we have mentioned these rocks. However, rather than just stop, we plan to revisit a lot of our favourite haunts, and take the drone with us to get a different point of view. We are now officially licensed to fly the thing (new laws came in on Jan 1st) but I will wait until the lockdown is over before I do any more of that.
