Re: What the hoteliers really think of their guests...

If you moan about too many cushions on a bed you deserve to be flung from the top of the hotel. People, and especially British people, try to moan and fake illnesses etc to get money back etc. The British are now known for it, and it does us no favours whatsoever. When I suspect somebody is trying t...

Kato Paphos to ISOP in 360!

In our latest 360 film we start at Paphos Castle. We drive up to the Mall and then through Old Town. We then head for the main Papantoniou's Supermarket before turning left up the B7 towards the road works. After Bionic we turn right and then left to avoid them, and then head for the Post Office. Fi...

Just a shame it doesn't apply to their regular broadband. They came about 70th in that.
This puzzles me a bit but probably because I don't know the facts. I didn't think there would be 70 suppliers in Cyprus.
There aren't. HiC was talking about Europe, and I was referring to a Global list.

Re: Palm Tree Advice

Usually the pavement in front of your house is your responsibility, that is why people plant trees on them, we have a couple of fir trees, and when they get near to the electricity /cyta cables, we phone the electricity board and they come and cut them back free of charge, I dont think you would be...

Relaxing Cyprus - Above The Blue Lagoon

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 Blue Lagoon.

Put your feet in a bucket of hot water and pretend you are in a spa!

Re: From Dora to Trozena in 4k!

I'm doing a film of the drive to Blue Lagoon and it is more suited for that. Partly because you are driving more slowly, and partly because the side scene is mainly of a more distant panorama. The camera I am using in this film for the front view is wide-angle. It does have a wider setting but I'm n...

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?

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...
