Re: Mind tonight... cold night ahead...!

We arrived on Saturday from a mild and sunny North Wales 10c when we left for Manchester Airport and experienced the calm before storm Ciara. We were warned on the flight that there were high winds of 40kmph in Paphos but by the time we landed the wind had dropped to below 20kmph. House was cold as ...

Re: Phone scammers pretending to be Cyta technicians

We have an Amazon Prime Account for which we pay a subscription once a year. We also had a Eurosport account with them which is now cancelled and a free music account which I will cancel in March. Today received another call from the same call centre. Almost identical message, instructing me to pres...

Re: Phone scammers pretending to be Cyta technicians

Two calls today purporting to be from Amazon saying my Amazon Subscription would renew today for £39.99. Press 1 to speak to a rep. Pressed 1, call centre in some foreign country. lots of background noise. Told it needed to be either renewed or cancelled today, and they wanted my card details. Polit...

Re: Cataract surgery

Go with the best on the island, Theodoros Potamitus at Pantheo Eye Clinic, Limassol. They only use the best Zeiss lenses. Rosemary had the bifocal ones fitted and no longer needs reading glasses. Five years, no problems and really pleased with the results. She still goes for checkups. At the time sh...

Re: Traffic Lights out

Even though the roundabout at the mall is fairly successful, it is still fun to go to Neros for a coffee and watch some of the driving antics. Also, on two occasions, we have seen, at the roundabout at the bottom of the dual carriageway leading to the triangle, a petrol tanker ignoring the roundabou...

Re: Title deeds description?

Could be for a variety of reasons. Maybe their move to Cyprus did not go according to plan and they have not got the cash available to pay for them. We were very lucky with ours as there were no memos on our deeds, even though our developer had taken out a mortgage on our land prior to us signing ou...

Re: Title deeds description?

Thankful. A huge weight and worry off our shoulders. We just hope that the other purchasers from our developer get theirs soon as it is a huge worry for them. However, when a property is for sale, with Title Deeds available, it often means that the present owner has not bothered to pay for them and ...

Re: Paphos court acquits Rottweiler owner of manslaughter

A couple of weeks ago I was riding my bike on the farm tracks very close to where this happened. There were three Alsatians in an enclosed field. They were at the far end of the field quite a distance from me. As soon as they spotted me they came hurtling towards me. Luckily there was no way out of ...

Re: Paphos aims to create a brand name

Perhaps they can do something about the public loos at the swimming end of the harbour. Gents, flooded floor, no soap, towels or loo paper and no toilet seat. Rosemary used the ladies and they were almost as bad. These loos, a few years ago, were spotless. Big improvement on last time though, as the...

Re: Paphos In Autumn

I rode from Anarita to the reservoir yesterday. Instead of taking the Foinikas road after passing through the village, I took the one before, which leads to the dam. I made my way along farm tracks, passed the silos, to the reservoir. It was very concerning seeing lots of dumper trucks using the cou...

Re: Aircraft noise today (18 Nov)

I could hear them whilst doing my walk from Geroskipou Beach to the harbour. It was a constant aircraft noise for around half an hour. When we got back to Anarita we spotted two of them, one flying at a constant altitude and one diving down from a very high altitude.This was around lunch time.

Re: Green light for new study on combined Paphos marina cruise hub

Most cruise terminals, you walk off the ship. At Kusadasi, you walk through a shopping centre and Marina and the coaches for excursions are well away from the ship. There is a bus station near the harbour which could be used for the coaches for cruise excursions. A few thousand cruise passengers are...

Re: Cruise Liner

It is the Europa. A luxury cruise ship. It was due to dock at Ashdod but because of rockets fired from Gaza, could not do so. It is on its way to Limassol. 5* plus ship and well over €3000 for the next 11 day leg from Limassol to Dubai.

Re: Green light for new study on combined Paphos marina cruise hub

Ship anchored off Paphos is the Europa, a 5* plus ship whose passengers pay a great deal. Having a dock where cruises could dock and free buses to and from the old town would be bring in much revenue. Paphos has a lot going for it. When we dock at Limassol, a lot of people do not even get off the sh...

Re: Next e-car Giga plant after VW in Germany: Tesla

Totally agree Lloyd. Really fear for our economy in North Wales as we rely on the Merseyside, Deeside car plants and Airbus Broughton for a huge amount of employment. We have bought VW cars for the last 25 years and feel they have been slow off the mark with their range of electric cars. Our last pu...

Re: Showers and thunderstorms forecast today and over weekend

No rain today (Sun) in Anarita but had a really heavy shower yesterday afternoon. I went for a walk down at the harbour and could see storm clouds gathering over the hills. Rosemary stayed at home and thought I would be getting soaked. On the way back, around 5:30pm the roads were wet from the Ayia ...
