Ayia Napa

Green Acres Project, Cyprus

The idea of timber framed houses, with cavities and insulation, that keeps the house cool in summer and nice and warm in the winter obviously makes good sense in Cyprus ... Add the attention to detail, including, above average bedroom sizes, bay windows, utility room, gas or log fire places, a separate kitchen that fits a good size dining table with fitted oven, hob, extractor with quality ceramics and surfaces, en suite shower room, 3 bathrooms and toilets, car ports with roofs, power pressure water systems, high quality finishing, like fitted wardrobes with drawers that glide, provisions for central heating and air conditioning and much more !

Secrets Freedom Club, Larnaca

I met Nick and Bill back in 1994 when they first opened down on Dhekelia Road near the bases .. Times were different then in Cyprus, the gay movement a little taboo ... Moving to the airport road in 2005, by now it was more of a Freedom Club than a Gay Club, which means anyone and everyone can go, as long as you're a little open minded, and they do, so much so this is one big anything goes party every weekend !

Easter Orthodox Style

The word Pascha means Passover in Greek, the eternal Passover from death to life and from earth to heaven, and begins with a 40-day fasting, ending within the Holy Week during which a complete fasting diet is followed.  No meats, dairy, fish, poultry or dishes that are prepared with these foods can be eaten.  Many restaurants around the island also adapt their menus for the convenience of customers who may wish to follow a fasting diet.

19th Paradise Jazz Festival, Pomos 17th & 18th August 2018

To some it must have seemed a crazy idea to invite renowned jazz artists from England to a border area of Cyprus and so far up the West Coast, the Paradise Jazz Festival took off immediately and was loved by the audience from the very beginning, first by the British ex pats of the area, and then then by the musicians from Cyprus, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Greece, Israel, oh and then by all island's nationalities, giving it a truly international image!

Speedy Gonzales Mexican Bar & Restaurant, Pernera

... let me explain, here the Mexican food isn't hot, it's refreshing, in fact, you can request your selection to your taste, so everyone is happy.  The chef is of course Mexican with over 12 years experience, his specialities are the Burritos, Chimichanga, and an array of Fajitas ... but the menu is huge so you'll find it hard to choose, all served by the drop dead gorgeous scandi crew ... who'll serenade you on your birthday using the kitchen utensils as instruments ... it's just brilliant !
