It is no wonder that so Brits make Cyprus their retirement home. Life is not all about prices, its about quality of life
Its about waking up every morning to clear blue skies, an abundance of sunshine, friendly and sociable locals as well as others that have been touched by the " free Cyprus spirit,
Those sun rises that captivivate your own spirit and make you smile to your self.

This coming Sunday i will have been on Paradise island 8 weeks, glorious weeks , each day pure bliss. I understand of course that my feelings are those of a retired man not struggling to bring up a family or pay a mortgage.
I keep my self busy looking after my 3 grand children and giving my daughtet a little free time. I love cooking and i do wash the dishes. I have 3 doggies to look after as wrell as some stray cats in the neighbourhood.

Just curious Milti. Your daughter was presumably born (and raised?) in England and from what I remember your wife was British. How come she ended up in Cyprus?? Presumably earning a living in UK is much easier, no?

Your memory is correct. My daughter was born in London and my late wife, her mother, was English.
I used to bring my family once or twice to Cyprus , all loved Cyprus . My daughter came to Cyprus with mum in the summer of 1992 age 15 staying with family. She could not speak Greek . She wanted to stay in Limassol and study at the American Academy where my younger brother was the VP. She adored Cyprus and begun earnestly learning Greek and making many friends. She was in a way rather proud that she was christened in Stroumbi , in fact at the same church I was babtised in the old village.

With some hesitation i agreed to her request to remain in cyprus living with my family. On visiting London she was always eager to return here. She has been living here now for 24 years , has a very good position in a financial institution and does not even want to visit London , her last visit was in late 2009 to see her dying mother. She now of course speaks Greek , however always converses with me in English.

My three grandchildren speak both greek and english and I now speak to all three in Greek.

My strong family connections in Cyprus is one of the factors in my being ...besoted with Cyprus. Im not the least religious
In fact i harbour a positive but healthy antipathy towards religion in general , but im above all a " dedicated" family man.

I get on extremely well with my numerous relatives and with Cypriot and other nationals .

I absolutely detest vehemently the whole idea of raising extra funds by penalizing motorists for trivial " offences " such as we have in the UK. Following the terror attack in borough market many roads were cordoned of by the police and car owners were unable to take their cars. These low down crap had the audacity to issue penalty tickets !!!!

The whole country has been truly fucked.
The borough market terror attack perpetrated by Carriers of the deadly allah virus must have been known to the police but the police are too fucking busy chasing motorists!!!
