You may have noticed, that I love Cyprus with a passion and I’ve always said; “Cyprus is versatility to the extreme!”  How extreme? I hear you shout; well, where else you can ski in the Troodos Mountains in the morning, and in under an hour you can be swimming in the Med, which btw never drops below 15°C ... Here's a quick look at What's On in Cyprus this month ...

This clinic provides a professional and qualified veterinary service in comfortable surroundings at their modern clinic on 1st April Avenue in Paralimni, Tasos and Maria Kefalas are so passionate about animals, that they treat each and every pet as their own, with home and emergency visits available when required ... On another recent visit to check over, and apply treatment for ear mites and to vaccinate our two rescued kittens, again an the service was exemplary!

It might sound crazy, but by the end of December, in the morning you can go skiing or even Husky Sledding in the Troodos Mountains, and just over an hour later you can swim in The Mediterranean Sea and that’s just one of the reasons why I think this place is paradise!  And remember Cypriots live for the table, so be warned, in the festive season you’ll probably put on a few kilos!

As we come to the end of our long, hot, summer season, the season for exhibitions, tours, and festivals is well and truly underway.  As usual, we'll also see lots of end-of-summer closing parties, it's any excuse to clear all the stock.  Naturally, that will bring lots of winter opening parties, and maybe some really cool Christmas markets too!

The venue and ambiance a perfect match for a fabulous repertoire of carefully choreographed dance steps by this awesome couple.

The Stumble Inn, Ayia Napa

The place looks traditionally British, well, it's on a corner for starters, but these days it's got a European twist as lots of their repeat clients are from various parts of Europe, particularly Scandinavia.  There's a covered terrace all the way around, the décor; lots of wood, comfy benches, colourful tables, low or high ... a row of tall red stools surrounding the bar, oh and blackboards everywhere and the host oozes hospitality ...
