Do I need a car in Cyprus?

Cyprus is small, and one of its great joys is being in the snowy Troodos Mountains in the morning and basking in the sun on the beach in the afternoon.

Christmas in Cyprus

I love Christmas in Cyprus. I have to admit when I first came to live here I did wonder what Christmas would be like. I remember the first thing that struck me was how much George Michael’s song “Last Christmas” was played on the radio and in the nightclubs! “Why was that?”, I hear you ask.

What is the education system in Cyprus like?

When I first came to live in Cyprus, I was unmarried, and in a relationship with my Greek Cypriot now-husband.

Is it possible to move to Cyprus before Brexit?

The Brexit deadline is approaching and it’s looking increasingly certain that British citizens will be treated the same as all other third-country nationals, requiring a visa to live here. A deal may be agreed that offers a better solution – or it may not. We just don’t know. What we do know, however, it that the only almost iron-clad way to guarantee your current rights is to move to Cyprus before Brexit.
