Green Monday Fun

Published 19th of February, 2018

Last year our attempts at flying a kite on Green Day ended in failure. We wound up using it as a football. So this year we were determined to have more success.

The Venue


We set off for the top of The Akamas. We figured it is normally fairly breezy up there, so this seemed our best bet for some wind. We weren't disappointed, and when we arrived a fairly decent wind was blowing.

It Flies!


We had immediate success! We bought this kite from Paul and Natalie's supermarket in the centre of Polemi. Natalie had promised us it would fly and she was good to her word.

Interesting Rock Outcrop


I will have to investigate that rock, but all in good time.

Still Flying!


We took a fair amount of pictures of our kite. After last year's failure we needed a pick-me-up. To make a picture of a kite a bit more interesting though, I went down the hill a bit and lay in the grass. This is the lengths I go to get an action shot.

Some Flowers


We took turns flying the kite. When it was my turn, my wife had the camera. This is what happens when my wife has the camera.

Akamas Vertigo

For a while now we have been meaning to place another geocache in the Akamas. We first checked out the location, above Avakas Gorge, last summer. We went back a few months later to check the coordinates, and now, finally, the cache is live. While we were doing this, I naturally took some pictures...

The Akamas By Car

Nothing beats exploring the Akamas by car. A decent 4x4 can take you to places you would never normally find on foot, and the aircon can be a real life-saver. Some routes into the Akamas are bumpier than others. In this blog take a relatively bump free route which would suite the more cautious amongst you.

The Far Side of the Akamas

Last October when I had the weekend to myself, I resolved to do a geocache that had eluded me up until now, due to it's remoteness. Given that people were interested in the Akamas Church blog I posted a while back, I thought I would turn the photos I took into another blog...

Sparti Adventure Park

We have driven past Sparti Adventure Park in previous visits to Paphos Forest and the Troodos. However, we normally have another destination in mind, so have never paid it a visit until now. Last sunday, some Cypriot friends invited us along and we jumped at the chance. It is a fair drive from Paphos, but the scenery along the way is beautiful, and you will be driving on regular roads, so any rental car will be fine. We cut through Paphos Forest in our 4x4, but that is the subject of another blog!

Akamas Sunshine

The sun shone brightly this morning, so we took the opportunity to go for a drive on the Akamas. There's been a lot of rain, but as a result of this, the Akamas is looking gorgeous at the moment...
