Strolling for Happiness – Oroklini 7 Jan.

vasilopita-2017

The Cyprus Strollers is a club of giving; participants benefit from its ample services at no charge. Therefore, it is ever so sweet, when members take the initiative and come up with opportunities for displaying their generosity. Such was the case on Saturday 7 January 2017, at the start of our 6th Season of activities, when our Dear Koula arrived with the traditional Vasilopitta cake for the new year; everybody had a piece and the walk along the coast between Oroklini and Dhekelia turned into an unforgettable experience.

Strolling was further inspired by reflections on the meaning of happiness (the word ‘happy’ is on everyone’s lips so many times, during this holiday period), aided by two lines of poetry by the English poet William Cowper (18th c.), and the illustration you can study below. Join us on 15 Jan. at Lythrodontas, for a further attempt to combine hiking with the world of letters https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/lythrodontas-2-hikes-sunday-15-jan/

“Happiness depends, as nature shows, less on exterior things than most suppose.”
