February 2015

681

It’s February, my favourite month, mainly because it’s Valentine’s Day and I love seeing the postman struggling to get all my cards in the letter box … it’s a short month so next pay day comes quicker and of course because spring is in the air, the blossoms are out, aromas everywhere and everything is so green …

It’s also Carnival Season, with parades on and around the 22nd, and events of song and dance in most towns in the last week … oh, and many night clubs will have festival after parties and some are bringing in top names singers …

One of my favourite days on the calendar is Green Monday falling early this year on 23rd … so get out into the field, on the beaches and in the hills and strike up a barbie and don’t forget it’s the start of Lent, so no meats … some chance ! … if you haven’t been invited anywhere just go for a stroll and someone will probably ask you to join them, you know?, traditional Cypriot hospitality ‘n all that!

Cyprus is so versatile, you’ll probably still be able to snowboard up in the Troodos Mountains in the morning and swim in the med in the afternoon and the air is still really clear so you’ll get a fab tan … It’s a great time to go touring and there’s plenty to see …

It’s also February Sales for all you shop ’til you drop freaks … so get out and find some bargains … its a good time to buy that last winter warmer …

I’ve noticed more renovations than usual, it’s nice to see businesses putting a bit back into keeping in fashion … so it’s looking like most people are anticipating a bumper year ahead … Tourism seems to be swinging back to a British majority, European market and its starting to feel like the old days … The season should kick off early with Easter falling on 12th April … bring it on !

The App is getting bigger every day, and our Facebook Page ever more popular … We’ve also introduced Twitter and instagram so get following and sharing guys and lets make this rock the best place in Europe … well we’ve got good reason, its been partying here since the gods invented party some 12,00 years ago …

A big shout has to go out to the 3rd Daxi Business Awards in Ammohostos on the final day in January, meant we all woke up in February with a hangover … Especially the crew at CyHerbia who won the top award … Start as you mean to go … Well what do you expect with an almost 24 hour licensing laws …

Finally i have to say thanks to all our sponsors whom without we wouldn’t be here … oh and if you’re not on the What’s On Cyprus network, hurry up ! …

And really finally, and needless to say, life is short, so if I can give you one tip, make sure you do at least one thing you’ve never done before … at least once !

2015 … It’s going to be the best ever !!!!
You heard it here first!
