Hello!

Paphos Life has a News section. We scour the web looking for suitable articles, and post snippets of them here. The process is semi-automatic. Once we have identified a News Source, we write a routine to import a link and create a news article.

If you are worried about content duplication, don't be.

  1. We never print the full story.
  2. We include a nice big button at the end of the snippet, directing the reader to the News Site the story originated from. News Sources
  3. Every news page we show has the HTML attribute "CANONICAL" set to the originating page. In English, this means that the search engines know that your page is the source of the article, and our page acknowledges this. News Sources

If you are a News Source and you want us to use your stories, just drop us a line at admin@paphoslife.com. We don't ask for any back links in return, and you won't have to provide us with any technical details. We will examine your site and work out the simplest way to extract data.

If we are using your news site and you would like us to stop, please also contact us at the above address. We will be happy to oblige if that is what you want.

Love Paphos

Kouris Reservoir

We've neglected the dams for a while. They've overflowed, and now the waters are subsiding, ever so slightly. But what of the reservoirs further afield? Kouris has a church which is nearly submerged when it is full. So we thought we better photographed this semi-submerged church while it is still semi-submerged.

From Pentalia to Polemi

A few weeks ago we produced a rather long film, showing a drive from Pentalia to Polemi. I was going to do a sped-up version, but I found the full version quite relaxing, especially with the soothing soundtrack, so I have left it alone. People were curious as to the route we took, so I retraced our steps, and stopped to take some photographs along the way...

Roudia Bridge Time Warp

An old photograph, showing a young man standing on top of a broken Venetian Bridge got us excited recently. It looked a bit like Roudia, but the rock outcrop in the background seemed in the wrong place. There was only one way to find out for sure...
