A strong and varied group hiked at Teisia on 28 November, with a clear sky and enticing temperatures. Participants welcomed Evita, who chose to hike while airing her choice of music, and some even placed their requests. That’s life with The Cyprus Strollers, the club with a fresh beat. Compliments to Gunnar for leading the activity and to Anna for the photos. Join us on 4 Dec. at Xylogefyro https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/pedoulas-xylogefyro-4-dec/

Unforgettable Rain – Kionia 20 Nov.
The impressive collection of experiences Strollers gathered on 20 November, while hiking at Kionia, was summarized in a few splendid words by Varnavas. When we were all into dry clothes, enjoying a superb meal, his spontaneous remarks were “if it wasn’t for the rain over the closing 45 minutes of hiking, we would risk forgetting what now has become an unforgettable event”. Compliments to Antonis for leading the day and to Dimitris, Antonia, Paola, Nana and Elena for the photos.

Autumn weather, at last – Mnimata Piskopon 14 Nov.
On 14 November the Club conducted a climb to Mnimata Piskopon for the first time in its history of 15 seasons. Participants thoroughly enjoyed the day, aided by the weather befitting the season. Curious as to what the hike’s name means? Look out for our return hike to this destination next year, to find out. Can’t wait for this long?

Climate concerns – Kourtellorotsos 6 Nov.
What do you call the weather, when it is 6 November, at altitude above 1000 m, temperature is hovering around 25 centigrade, and there is not a cloud above? This was one main discussion point among the Strollers on Kourtellorotsos this Saturday. Compliments to Cristina for inviting participants during a break to walk some extra 25 m to admire a panoramic view. Compliments to Yulia, Maria, Anna, Antonis and Franco for the photos.

Daft weather, no complaints
A large gathering of Cyprus Strollers rose beyond the daft weather forecasts and took the challenge of a double bill of hikes at Amiantos on 31 October. It turned out that the forecast of the day before, of a very rainy day, resulted in each of us packing the boot of our car with a full set of rain gear; only for it to remain there. Participants thoroughly enjoyed the day, and the only water we came across, in the river stream of Loumata Aeton. Compliments to Antonis for leading this excursion and to Yulia, Sevag and Anna for the photos. Join us on 6 Nov. at Panagia Araka https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/panagia-araka-kourtellorotsos-6-nov/
