Cloud Coverage

It was cloudy on sunday! For months we've had nothing but blue skies, so it was lovely to see them. I had to go to Lidl so picked a scenic route which would enable me to get some nice pictures...

From Dora to Trozena in 4k!

In this film we drive from Dora to Trozena. We also traverse the Bailey Bridge which was built by British forces about 70 years ago. We then drive up through the abandoned village of Trozena, and finish at a church overlooking the Diarizos Valley. As an experiment we used two cameras in this film, s...

UK to build new Nuclear Power Station

I didn't turn this into a news article as it is about the UK, but I thought it would be an interesting discussion. Personally, I think Nuclear may well turn out to be the only option.

Re: Flying from Paphos to UK - airport shambles?

You could probably spend an entertaining few days posting links to stories about problems at airports around the globe. But why bother?

Shit happens. Be prepared and bring a book.

Re: Relaxing Cyprus - Diarizos

It was filmed at 50fps, and processed at 25fps, so it is in effect going at half speed. Had I filmed at 25 fps and played back at half speed it would be jerky. To see the "real-time" version, just speed up the video in youtube. Remember to turn it back down again afterwards, as that setting continue...

Calm Seas

The sea was unusually calm on Saturday. I had a couple of hours free so took my camera out to photograph it for posterity. I started at the edge of the Akamas, and headed to the Sea You Beach Bar in Kissonerga.

Re: Consumers should brace for much higher prices in basic goods this Christmas

It will make a difference if we all went vegan, and to suggest otherwise is bull. That won't make me go vegan. Let's face it, if the treatment of animals isn't enough to make me put the bacon butty down, then helping to stop the destruction of the planet is hardly likely to either. A baby lamb is cu...

Re: Flying from Paphos to UK - airport shambles?

More reports of long queues last night. Most people I have read are putting the blame on unprepared passengers. Print off your paperwork if you want a quick ride. I saw a report that one man took 20 minutes to find the correct stuff on his phone.

NB: the reports I saw were made by passengers.

Youtube wouldn't let me use a copyrighted piece without a license. You would be amazed at how good they are at detecting copyrighted stuff, too.

Re: Relaxing Cyprus - Diarizos

Glad you liked it. Drone footage can be a dilemma as the expected norm is to break it down in to small chunks so as to keep the interest of the fickle viewer. But I don't like that kind of footage myself. I find it annoying when the scene changes just when I am getting familiar with the landscape. S...

Relaxing Cyprus - Diarizos

Slow down and relax for a few minutes. Relaxing music plays over a gentle drone flight over some glorious Autumnal Cyprus countryside. In this clip we are flying over the Diarizos countryside, near the abandoned village of Souskiou. Put your feet in a bucket of hot water and pretend you are in a spa...

Kato Paphos in 360!

It's time for another 360 film. In this one we are approaching the Mall Roundabout in Paphos. We turn right towards the Harbour, then left at the new roundabout. We follow the road past Paps until we are at the Municipal Baths end of the Sea Front. Then we head up to Bar Street and back down along t...

Re: Ryanair, you couldn't make this stuff up!

I think you are fortunate if for 15 years you haven't had to deal with a dishonest customer who knows how to work the system. In the case of Ryan Air, I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole, for all the reasons you specify, and more. But I won't shed a tear for anybody who does deal with them and g...

Crown Resorts Horizon

The Crown Resort Horizon Hotel is looking a bit under the weather at the moment. Presumably a victim of the COVID crisis, it will certainly need a bit of TLC before it opens again to the public. Last sunday we took a look around... Read the article and chat about it below...   crown-resorts-horizon_...
