Re: Full moon yesterday

Nice pics. The trouble with all these special and rare full moon nights, is that we have had an awful lot of them in the last year or so. They are certainly not once in a blue moon events, if you excuse the pun. However, I know how hard getting decent moon shots can be, so don't let that observation...

Re: New pub peyia

I don't know how to answer that. If you can't see it I don't know how I could possibly explain it to you in a way you would understand.

That sounds like a cop-out answer but I am sincere, and I don't mean it in a derogatory way.

Re: Over 17,000 hunters set to head out on Sunday

Clay pigeons are used in Cyprus. By the Evretou Reservoir there is a water tank, on top of a big hill. If you go up there you will first of all get some stonking views of the surrounding area. Secondly, you will see lots of clay pigeons that have been shot at.

It's nothing about loyalty to Queen and Country and everything about showing respect to your hosts.

Foinikas Views

We just can't keep away from Foinikas. Somebody posted some pics of the abandoned village on our Paphos Chat facebook group, and people were asking how to get there. We bumped an old blog showing the route, but decided that a film was also needed. While we were out filming it, we decided to take som...

On its way to Greece for maintenance, apparently. I never realised they were mobile before.

Re: Are airlines tracking YOU?

Definitely does happen. If you want to be extra safe reboot your router before taking the final plunge as well. You will have a different IP address then.

Re: What3words:The app that can save your life

But with WhatApp or Viber you don't upload a load of numbers, you simply tap on the attachment which says "Send your current location". Of course, it does rely on the recipient also having WhatsApp or Viber and a mobile number as opposed to landline...and I guess that's the drawback. That is exactl...

Re: What3words:The app that can save your life

The only difference in using this compared to using a google pin (both will rely on the same tech) is that the user has to repeat three simple words, rather than a host of numbers.

Re: What3words:The app that can save your life

This came out a few years ago now. It was of interest to the geocaching community for fairly obvious reasons. I never heard from it again after that though, so it is nice to see it still being used.
