In a world filled with division, the spirit of conviviality displayed by the large gathering of Strollers, people of 13 nationalities, including, once more, newcomers, at Platania on 30 October, is exemplary, setting this Club apart. Compliments to Nana and Demetris for the photos. Join us next at Kourtellorotsos https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/panagia-araka-kourtellorotsos-option-for-stavros-5-nov/

When the weather is perfect, the Pleasure factor doubles – Prodromos 22 Oct.
The path to Zoumi and Stavroulia we hiked on 22 October is among the prettiest on this island, with a dense forest of black pine; and the shade and clouds above created a fantastic outing for a large gathering of Strollers, incl. newcomers. The conversations were sparkling, and climaxed over lunch to themes that help one pass a better week ahead, until our next event on 30 Oct. https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/platania-mnimata-piskopon-30-oct/. Compliments to Elena, Anna and Andriana for the photos.
Red autumn landscape – Platania 16 Oct.
The 12 km outing at Platania – Doxa si on 16 October was at times chilly, at another spell windy, and all the way rainy. But within just a few hours, all that was forgotten, and what remained was the magical autumn landscape, in its splendid red colours, the vineyards, the positive vibes among participants, and the interesting conversations over lunch. Definitely a hike to remember. Compliments to Dina for this commentary. Join us on 22 Oct. at Prodromos https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/prodromos-zoumi-stavroulia-22-oct/
Persephone marks end of summer – 8 Oct.
Perhaps it is no coincidence that the hike that took place in autumn weather, at last, came on 8 Oct. on Troodos; the myth of Persephone, after all, helps explain seasonal change. The cheerful gathering of Cyprus Strollers enjoyed the scenery, the varied flora (we even spotted the first crocus flowers), and a well-deserved gargantuan lunch. Compliments to Nicos for leading the day and to Elena and Andriana for the photos. Join us on 16 Oct. at Platania https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/platania-kyperounda-doxa-si-16-oct/
Artemis, goddess of Honesty?
There was a marvelous display of honesty on 2 October at Artemis trail, high on Troodos; one of us forgot his pair of hiking poles leaning on a tree, at the hike start; 3 hours later, the poles were lying there, intact!
A large gathering of Cyprus Strollers, of 10 different nationalities, and all age groups (we had Elementary school kids, High school kids, University student, young couples and on) welcomed season number 17, in high spirits. Join us on 8 Oct. at Troodos https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/troodos-persephone-extended-8-oct/
