September 2015

It’s september and one things for sure, this is my favourite month, honest ! … I can’t believe it’s here already, the summer has shot by, and Autumn isn’t too far away … but tbh I reckon we’ll have another Indian summer and we’ll still be on the beaches ’til November …

I really love September, the temperature by day has dropped to bearable, much as it’s still in the mid thirtys at least we can sleep without the fans on … but the cold water still isn’t cold enough … and don’t be to suprised if we get a shower or two though that probably won’t happen ’til October …

You can feel and smell the air is cleaner with the northern range of mountains standing out on the horizon now the heat haze is clearing … so expect stunning sunrise in Protaras and spectacular sunsets in Paphos …

September also brings us loads of closing parties, some a little premature I feel, but to make up for it there’s festivals, beer parties, theatre, and dance events scattered all over the island … Do also check out the More section of the App … maybe learn the local lingo … it’s also touring season, so check out Stanna’s article called Driving You to Drink, jump in the car and go check out some places of interest with wineries in shouting distance, get some wine tasting in and top the cava up for Christmas … did i say Christmas? OMG ! … it’s not that far away … btw the non drinker has to drive ok !

Schools are back, so there’s a distinct lack of 6 to 16 year olds on the beach … making room for the older crew, the party weathered lot, who really know how to party … all the mature boobs are out on the beach and why not ? … The restaurants are in their element as couples go eating out every night and the island of love captures all those romantic couples who eventually get married here making us the number one place to get wed in the med …

More money is spent here in September than any other month and so the finale to the season is usually a happy one … quite a relief to what has so far been a strange season …

Changing the magazine into an App was my inspiration whilst in Oz and NZ back in 2012 … and it’s lovely to hear all the positive remarks, like, it’s so user friendly, and our fav, we love the dirrections button … The App is being updated daily and it automatically refreshes when you open it each day … btw Volume III is in design mode …

Much as we might get a day’s rain in September, remember we only get 30 to 35 days rain a year so you are pretty much guarenteed to go home with a tan … unless you’re Irish … first Irish bar to install a Solarium will make a mint … oh and don’t let those cool Mediterranean breezes fool you … reduce the factor 30 gradually through your stay and don’t forget to drink plenty of water …
