Almost all year round, beautiful, warm, sunny weather in Cyprus. In 5 years, we have rarely had to wear full winter clothing.
It's true what they say, sunny warm weather makes you feel better, more alive when the sun is shining.
When you move to a warmer climate your lifestyle is turned inside out, literally...
It's time to think...outside the box… The box being the four walls, most of us are usually confined in for most of the year.
In Cyprus, most of our daily life is spend out doors.
I remember, very clearly, when we lived back in the UK feeling very confined and miserable most of the time. Due to the dull, dreary, cold and wet weather, even during what should have been summer time.
I have always been an “outdoors” person.
As soon as there was a sunny, warmish day, which wasn't that often, we would get the bbq out.
Very infrequently, I must say!!
It was hardly worth the effort. There was no guarantee that it wouldn't rain.
Here in Cyprus, life takes place on the outside for most of the year. When you get up in the morning all you need to wear is a pair of shorts and a t-shirt… most of the year anyway.
Winter in Cyprus
It doesn't usually start getting cold here until around November. January to February - March get quite cold, but not usually as cold as it does in the UK.
Last winter 2010, we never had to wear a pair of normal shoes or a heavy coat. Great!!
We took these photos in February at Cape Greko, just outside Protaras Resort. The temperature was 20c.
