Hey Dee
Sorry that you are somewhat regretting the move to Cyprus. How long has been --- is it still possibly just the initial homesickness whoas. Can't imagine you missing good ole Scarberia (lol). Me -- I reside where Hazel has her iron fist firmly in place. You have to love the weather there -- you can't possibly miss the -20°C winter temps here.

What took you to Cyprus, work - spouse - family?

It's Dee short for Demetri. not DeeDee LOL. I've been in Cyprus since Dec. of 2004 when I came to spend the holiday's with my family (Brothers, Parents) and ended up trying to stay. My brothers and parents moved to Cyprus in 01 and then my cousin's and aunts/uncle came back in 200-03. Having been brought up in a really tight family circle I really missed them. I know, life goes on and we are bound to go out on our own, but I was living on my own, when holiday's and celebration's came around, yes you have many friends but their not family. So I decided to try here. The thing with here though is it take's you a month to earn what you do in under a week in Canada, and the employers here think it's part of their right to try and work you like an African in a Louisianna cotton field (if you catch my drift!). Also life here is much slower, and I don't have many friends here at all. So I think I made the wrong move! Ah well it's live and learn!\
And no Debbie I never complained about the -20 or even those -42 day's that we have once in a while, I really enjoyed winter! I loved going out for fun drives in a fresh snowfall at night. Or skiing/toboggening and Hockey. I guess you never tried being a Canadian, built for Canadian weather with asthma trying to spend a summer in 40+ weather, it's not fun!

Dee -- Actually I do get out and enjoy our Canadian winter --- snowmobiling, cross country skiing and skating. My son has been the driving force in keeping me active in all wether !!! I just find that after month three, the bitter cold wears me thin and towards the end of the winter I spend more time inside drinking wine than I do outside freezing my buttocks off.

I would enjoy a year-round temperature somewhere in the mid-70's without the humidity. I definitely hear you on the humidity point -- I can't imagine trying to function in the humidity we have with asthma :cry:

I think more and more Canadian companies are moving towards the cotton field mentality you mention.

I myself am guilty of overworking --- spend on average 70 - 80 hours working between home and the office.....but the expectation is there from employers and if you want to work you can either do it or let someone else have your position and they will do it.

Having a tight family will help to get you through the transition. They can offer a tremendous amount of support --- even if it's only an ear to bend on the tough days.

When you say it takes a month to earn what you would in a week in Canada -- does what you earn in a month give you the same buying power. Are the living expenses relative to the earning potential or does one greatly overshadow the other?

I best be going, still at the office ... taking a 5 minute break to regroup my thoughts -- have a nice evening.

Hi!
As I say in my post "wanna meet kind and friendly people"(cyprus36820.html), my name is Nikolas and I was born in Larnaca in 1980.
I currently am a newbie in Nicosia, working for the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC) and looking for friends.
I always love to be good friends with any warm-hearted, kind and friendly person.
I would be happy to hear from you, please contact me anytime if you wish!
A kind heart is the most beautiful thing.
My friend is like a brother and can share anything with me.
Please check out the "about me" section on my facebook profile as well if you wish.

Thank you, my friend...
Take care!
