My very first visit to Cyprus after emigrating to the UK was in July of 1966. I was then just 20 years old and so was my then girlfriend, a year later to become my wife. I so much wanted her to visit Cyprus , my place of birth. We spent just a week staying in Varosi, Limassol and Paphos after a short stay in Nicosia. Visited my village Stroumbi, she so much wanted to see the earthquake stricken village that I had told her so much about. She fell in love with Cyprus a love that lasted to her dying days, so much so she chose Limassol as her for ever resting place.

Numerous visits followed increasing in the 80s to 6 or 7 times a year. The joy of getting on the plane heading for Cyprus was overwhelming, the sadness of returning home to the UK also.

As I now wake up each morning without counting the days of return feels me up with such pure joy, the realization that there is no plane to catch, no suitcase to pack. Each day is embraced joyfully, realizing fully that money is by no means the main ingredient of contentment and happiness.

It rained yesterday in Limassol, thunder too.
Took my afternoon keep whilst the rain was coming down at just after 2pm. Woke up at 3.30, rain had stopped King Sun was out and so was I, went fishing !! What a wonderful life here on Paradise Island !!

No I must have missed it. In fact I have yet to see it in Cyprus.

I saw it twice last year, when I was visiting Cyprus (both the North and the South) .

It seemed to me that this place is blessed with one of the most magnifcient skyscapes one could ever encounter in life.

A year plus in and Cyprus is still MY Paradise Island, but let clarify something in view of some comments that seem to dismiss my claim.
Im a 72 years young, Im not seeking employment, I do not have either a mortgage or loans to repay, I.do not have to bring up my children, and I do not have a boss. All in all Im " free " man enjoying my time on Paradise Island.also Im a very healrhy man apart from diabetes and cancer !!
