Re: Are airlines tracking YOU?

I normally search with VPN on and then switch it off or chose different country as point of entry.

Re: Padded mattress cover

Maybe Steptoes or Gevorest, both on Mesogyi (Polis) road?

Re: Do you know Cyprus? Villages (#28)

First wanted to say Pissouri but I think we are looking towards Akamas with the 2 white buildings at the beach being the Anassa hotel?
Is it Neo Chorio?

Re: How much do you pay for a car-wash?

I pay €5 at the Eko filling station in Chloraka - it's cheap and fast. Not as good as they used to be but still very convenient (and good enough for my truck).

Re: The barbaric frescoes of Agios Georgios Tou Sporou

Very interesting - thank you for sharing the background to the scenes on the frescos. And well done in getting so much detail captured on your photographs out of the dark interior of this old church.

Re: Flight delay compensation

Claim and sue for everything, it's your right ?? But no complaints that premiums have gone up! Good point Mouse. When my wife got her compensation it was kind of a bitter-sweet experience - Jet2 did treat them well, placing them into a hotel for a night and offered food vouchers etc. The kids enjoy...

Re: Flight delay compensation

My family last year had a Jet2 flight canceled from Paphos to Leeds - Jet2 advised that they are entitled for compensation. We used Bott and Co and got it relatively soon (minus 25% fee). This would not have happened if doing on our own - or maybe not until now. Bott and Co is a multiple award-winni...

There is a mosaic workshop as part of the revamped Ibrahim Khan in the old town.
Worth having a look there. They are also running courses.

Went for an early morning snorkelling tour at the Municipal Bath today and can highly recommend it. We have seen about 50 barracudas swimming in incredible formations, plenty of other fish and also a turtle. Later in the afternoon the barracudas were still there but the visibility is much worse comp...
