Today´s Wine Tour with The Kamares Wine Club

We were picked up at 10.00 to visit two wineries close to Paphos - an we were 32 people in the bus! We started with the family winery Kalamos - the father and two sons are running the winery - where we spent almost two hour tasting their delicious wines - and we did taste all of them and if I remember - it was nine different wines. We were served smoked ham, cheese and bread together with the wines - and we did need that! Kalamos winery was soo generous!

After that we visited the winery of Tsangarides were we tasted all Angelos wines together with a very tasty buffé! We had Xinistry, Dry Rosé, Medium Dry Rosé, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro and Agios Efrem - all very tasty wines! We all love you - Angelos - and Thank you soo much!

Then we entered the bus and were driven home - very satisfied with a lovely day - arranged by Maggie! So Thank you Maggie!

Yesterday´s bridge

For the second week we managed to take the "silver" place - and did win a bottle of wine. Slowly, slowly - siga, siga - we learn....

Cyprus Mens Open 2012

Thursday until Sunday last week Sven played Cuprus Mens Open at Minthis Hill´s golf course - and he played EXCELLENT! He did win the 3rd Division Gross and was totally number 19 of 43 players! So Well done - and he lowered his handicap from 16.4 to 12.5! Of course he was so proud collecting his prize.

Sven - Winner and Winner

Yesterday evening we went with our friends Sue and Steve to celebrate Sven having won two prizes during the March golf competitions - Winner of "Men´s Division 2" and Winner of "Men´s Greensomes" together with Göran. It was supposed also to be an evening giving us a lesson in golf rules - but it turned out to be a quiz - and we did not win that game.... On the second picture you see me standing beside Sven and Ed Blake - but I have to be honest and confess that I only picked up the envelope for Göran.

Easter greetings from Malmö

Our grandchildren Embla and Toril sent us these lovely pictures - and of course we longed for being with them to celebrate the Swedish Easter one week before "our" Easter here in Cyprus..... But in another 1,5 month we will meet them - and also the other two grandchildren - Wilhelm and Tuva-Li.

A letter from Embla

We got a reminder from Embla - our oldest grandchild to turn off all lamps between 21.30 - 22.30 Cyprus time - and of course we did and so did also the part of Pafos that we are overlooking. I promised to send here a photo - and here it is!

Lunch at Krasares

The last Saturday every month we Swedes meet at the Kraseras restaurant to have lunch - and the food is always excellent and it is a relief sometimes only to speek Swedish. Within the club we have a lot of competence and we share it with each. Within short we will arrange a "seminar" about wills - which is so important to have in Cyprus as our Swedish wills are not valid here - and safe investment - and then we take help from a lawfirm in Pafos and a Swedish investor bank.

This time we were "only" 48 because there was a big golf competition ongoing - and of course Sven was there.... And a nice photo of me and my "bridge competitor" Rigmor.


Friday evening we were invited to friends in Kamares - Åke and Britt - and as they told us before the dinner - you have to prepare your own food... We eat fondue and the meat and the sauces were delicious! The first photo did Göran take and the second is Göran thanking our hosts for a fantastic evening. The social life in Cyprus is very intensive - and we love it!
