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/

Beyond Confines – Pouziaris 23 Oct.

The hike on Troodos on 23 October took place on a very clear day, with a wonderful view down along the Limassol coastline and the Akrotiri salt lake. The sentiments among a varied group of members from several backgrounds was that we were spending a day beyond confines: free in nature, far from the limits of city life. The type of outing one deserves after a week of routines and chores. Compliments to Anna and Alex for the photos. Join us on 31 Oct. on Amiantos https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/amiantos-and-loumata-aeton-2-hikes-31-oct/

Reflections on hardships – Spilia 17 Oct.

The hike of 17 October encompassed visits to hideouts of guerilla fighters of the 1955-59 struggle for independence, in Adelphi forest. Our minds traveled to the hardships suffered by brave young adults over sixty years back, hiding in mountains with sparse comforts. A comparison with present conditions was almost inevitable. The club welcomed newcomers, who helped create a spirited mood throughout the hike and the rich lunch that followed. Compliments to Demetris and Costas for the photos.

Dense forest of Black Pine – 9 Oct.

The peculiarity of the hike on Prodromos on 9 October is that hikers are rewarded by one of the prettiest forests on Cyprus, dense in tall Pinus nigra trees, only close to the far end. The large group of Strollers made up, once more, of persons from all ages and close to 10 nationalities, regulars as well as many first timers, walked the entire trail in good spirit, for this worthy treat at Stavroulia. There were many more pleasant moments, of course, on a most clear day, climaxing with lunch. Compliments to Anna, Yannis and Antonis for the photos.
