… so, its peak season, and it’s hot, hot, hot, with the temperature well over 40°C by mid-July, and even the cold water isn’t cold enough!  Sunrise is about 5.30 am and it’s not getting dark ’til almost 8.30 pm, and as we move swoftly out of lockdown there’s beach bars throwing beach parties, coz the clubs aren’t open yet.  I’m missing the foam parties and pool parties but I’ve heard the night clubs are targeting to open by 16th with some massive names coming to spin their mix …

The current Covid Crises has hit us all hard, throwing us into a sci-fi film set back in March, we’re now on 'Take 82', and tbh, I think the Cyprus Government got it right … They reacted very quickly, rumour has it from a little inside tip from one of our Chinese investors … They attacked the pandemic with the only possible solution, ‘To Slow it Down’ … then using experts in Epidemiology they mathematically calculated when things would get back to normal’ish … and we’ve lifted restrictions in travel, no more SMS messages to go out, no more curfew, we’re allowed to swim in the sea and top up the tan after, and the restaurants and bars are opening and it seems people are getting together with friends, so please pop out and give these guys some support, they need it most now!!!

It’s been the craziest start to the season ever, and I’ve seen so much happen over the past 28 years, with one crises after another, somehow the Cypriots just seem to bounce straight back out of them ... stay tuned for the latest here ...

One thing we can’t change is, it's Christian Easter on Sunday 12th and then just one week later it’s Greek Orthodox Easter on Sunday 19th, which also marks the end of 49 days of Lent, remember Green Monday the last time we could congregate, ffs, and of course Easter is the day we would all normally go crazy, lighting bonfires and BBQ’s, the aromas of barbecued Lamb just mouth-watering …

... With all these festivals and carnivals happening, and Easter coming in April, there’s an obvious sign that places will be opening early this season to welcome the ever increasing early season visitors promised by many tour operators, of course adding to the locals who are still in ‘off season’ party mode, gotta feeling this is gonna be a great month !!!

Of course, you have to love February, coz on the 14th it’s Valentine’s Day and it always makes me laugh when I watch the postman struggle to get my cards in the letterbox ;) …  Naturally, there’s nothing quite like a little romance, especially on our Goddess Aphrodite’s Island of Love … So guys, pop into ...

Oh, and if you think it’s quiet in December let’s not forget, it’s time for work’s parties, warm-up for Christmas Parties, Christmas parties, New Year parties and Fancy Dress parties and lots of Christmas markets, festivals, live gigs and naturally we’ll all be getting together with family and friends, to eat too much, drink too much, and with a bit of luck enjoy a little sex on the beach ? … calm down, it’s just a cock tale

It’s the season for exhibitions and festivals and summer closing parties and winter opening parties and if you think Cyprus is dead, you should look again … sure it’s quieter than the summer, and many bars and clubs closed early this year, doubling up their Halloween Party with their closing party, any excuse to get rid of all the booze in stock, lol ... and, if I hear you say there's nothing to do, I'll put you on the next flight home ...

There’s Live music events and festivals everywhere and closing parties and opening parties all over the place, and we’ll see a few more pubs, bars, cafes, and clubs staying open, with many swinging towards the local market.  So, if you get invited to any 'end of season' or 'opening' parties make sure you go … it’ll be rude not to!
