...it is a chance to wear woolly socks. It is a chance to breath crisp, clean air. You will be surprised the sounds you will hear in the stillness of the winter air. Wear layers, another expression of fashion interests, comfort opened and closed.

i say; for you GIG, try it, cross country skiing, a long walk, you will like it, you'll see.

I strongly recommend skiing lessons for young kids. It's friggin amazing how adaptable real young kids are. So balanced, flexible and they have no fear.

They pick it up within a couple of lessons.

I was very lucky and grew up in the Snowies. As such, took it upon myself to teach my kids how to ski. it's an important skill like swimming as far as I am concerned because it opens up options for them.

I would love to stick a video of my kids skiing down the mountain like pros, as my wife practically tumbles down. :lol:

Ok, so now we have a serious problem from Troodos square right up to the ski lift parking lot.

Demand in exceeding supply.
It's absolutely chaotic.

Urgent need to expand Olympus parking lot and widen the road!
Folks were stuck in traffic for hours today.

On a lighter note.
I snapped this photo today. A bit of irony.

The iconic Troodos ice cream truck buried in snow. lol
