Helen left the UK to live in Cyprus in 1994. She married her Greek Cypriot husband and moved into the dream house that they had built. She has two children, whom she has raised in Cyprus. She has taught English Language/Literature to Cypriot children/adults, and is currently a freelance editor.
She says: “It’s a slower lifestyle than the UK, with the added bonus of feeling safe. Cyprus is steeped in history and culture, and the British are always welcomed here. Cypriots are great people and I have many friends who are British and other nationalities too!”
