We took a drive up to the Troodos mountains to check out the snow conditions, although there was a large amount of snow the roads were clear all the way up to Mount Olympus.

The Ski resort was very busy as large numbers of the locals enjoyed the conditions.

Taking advantage of the recent fine weather, we decided to hike around the  the village of Sotira, which lies NW of Limassol, we made our way through the pine trees heading towards the village of Zanatzia.

We then moved onto the Village of Souni, where a huge amount of new building work was in progress. We noticed that someone in the village was a collector of VW vehicles. 


We passed through Souni and made our way through a couple of pine covered valley's, our final destination was to be the Kouris Dam, but  from this direction it was impassable due to the terrain.

A trip up North for Mandy's Birthday

To celebrate Mandy's birthday we took a trip to Northern Cyprus, our base for the visit was The Malpas Hotel. We were joined by several friends who helped the birthday girl see in her Landmark birthday. Mary baked her first cake which the guests thought was superb.

In the evening we made our way up to the village of Catalkoy and found a very warm welcome in the village bar from its owner, Adnan.

The next day we went for a drive along the picturesque Northern coastline, ending up at the village of Kayalar. We then returned to the harbour at Girne and enjoyed the Winter sunshine. One of our party savoured his first virgin Irish coffee.
