Summing it all up.
 

Martin T. (to the right) had a second pleasant quick trip to Cyprus in the period above. The first one was in May. This trip cost US $ 600, compared to the first one that only cost  some $340. But then, July is high season for rain soaked Norwegians.


Above, you have a map that show Cyprus. Martin landed at Larnaca and drove some 45 minutes to Agia Napa where he stayed.
The weather at Cyprus.

Weather Overview

The Cypriot climate is typically Mediterranean, with very hot summers in July and August. Inland temperatures can soar over 40C but refreshing respite can be found at higher altitudes and along the coasts. Cyprus can suffer drought years and summers are usually cloudless and almost always completely dry. Winters are usually moderately wet with temperatures averaging between 5C and 15C.

Departure July 9th.

To the left, July 9th was a rainy day. Martin's stoep was all wet and soggy. Nice day to leave for Cyprus. The maximum temperatures are predicted to be between 33 and 360 Centigrade for the next week, compared to Norway's which is between 12 and 150 Centigrade. Time to leave.

To the right, Martin outside his entrance flowers. Looks like snow. Martin doesn't know the name of the bush.


Happy Martin looking forward to the trip. His trusty leather jacket is cute.

Waiting for snow. Martin's rotating snow plough is ready to go. After it's fixed. Needs some extra parts.

Martin's rubbish compacter. The rubbish bin is always too small. This one compacts rubbish making room for more. Martin's design.

Happy with his beer bag. Martin is ready to go.

JAP, Martin's trusted lodger for 11 years, was ready to have a go at the airport. Had an haircut since last time

 

The weather was miserably on the road to the airport. 

And it rained and rained.

And rained some more on the route to the airport.

Waiting to embark.

Cute Cyprusan plane.

Arrival Cyprus July 9th.

 
Waiting for luggage.

Smoker desperate for their nicotine get their puffs at first opportunity. What a habit.

The guide welcoming us at the airport. It was late when we arrived to Iris hotel, an hotel without fridge. Shame.  

The next day, July 10, Martin settled in, went for  a swim of 2500 meters, an orientation trip and had an early night. It was hot, close to 360 Centigrade.
