Madari extravaganza 22 April

This Club succeeded in executing in parallel one circular and one linear hike on Madari on 22 April. No wonder, the day attracted Club regulars, newcomers, as well as people in Cyprus for a short stay; all blended joyfully around the rich lunch, which was a deserved treat for all the effort. Compliments to Antonis and Anna for the photos. Join us next here


Good Friday Stroll: 9 Epitaphios in Old Nicosia

There was an unprecedented turnout of young people and people of other ages visiting the churches of Nicosia Within-the-Walls during the afternoon of Good Friday 14 April. Reviving an old custom, we venerated the Epitaphios in 9 churches: Chrysaliniotissa, Agios Kassianos, Agios Varnavas (Cathedral), Agios Philoumenos, Agios Antonios, Agios Savvas, Trypiotis, Agios Eleftherios and Phaneromeni. Compliments to Elena for the photo. Best wishes for a Happy Easter.

Visit with us Epitaphios in Old Nicosia Churches

At 15:30 hours, in front of Chrysaliniotissa garden (, on Orthodox Good Friday 14 April, we set off to visit and venerate the Epitaphios in 8 churches in Nicosia Within the Walls. No need for registrations. E-mail Xenophon if you need more detail.

Our hike on Saturday 8 April was along one of those routes that had it all. The first part – all uphill with quite a few strenuous steps – took us to the most popular waterfall in Cyprus, then through the dense and enchanting forest, crossing a stream at several points. This was the time to watch your step, breathe in the fresh forest air, connect with nature, and at some points feel the burn in your legs. At the top end of the Caledonia trail, we shifted to the Pouziaris trail, the perfect counterbalance. Mostly wide dirt roads led us downhill easily, offering some amazing views of the land and villages below. The gentle terrain was an invitation to walk side by side, chat with fellow Strollers… and start thinking of the nice lunch that awaited us at the end of this multifaceted hiking experience. As always, abundant food, drink and conversation mixed well in our group of many nations, ages and languages, making this a wonderful get together before the Easter break. Compliments to Dina for this lovely summary.

Repertoire of impressions – 2 April

The hikes of 2 April at Gerakies and the stream of Moutoullas offered a broad repertoire of views to a gathering of Strollers of eight different nationalities. The conversations around lunch extended from very modern to ancient themes, with everyone taking part, so that we all felt enriched with impressions to take us through the week. Until our next meeting here Compliments to Eleni and Paola for the photos.
