Cracking news! I'll send the mother-in-law up to test it out in a couple of weeks, probably in the dark!

This is just one of the reasons why we are coming back for our 20th year.

A big thank you to all, and see you soon.

Will hopefully see you at Akrotiri again Mick, or in Arillas. Just over 5 weeks now.

John, being a mother-law your remark was not amusing.

But I did find it very funny :) :)

Excellent news, we like to have a drink at sunset in Akrotiri then amble down the path to our evening meal. The alternative route works Ok but its just not the same. Thanks to all who made this possible again this year. Yammas!

MnM, I reckon even her-indoors would have a job to push the wheelchair off the cliff now... I still remember the youtube record of last time........ Er no, that was in "mad alley" on the road to Tria from Brouklis.

20 years may seem a lifetime, but when you find quality, you don't let it go if you've got one grain of sense. I found Arillas when I was 50 and am clinging on for dear life. I guess the Donkey track is for folks younger than me, but they will still want it in 20 years time.

We're looking forward to trying it out in the next few days .....  :-))

We love to walk round the village on "our" circular tour, and usually manage once to Afionas but very rarely pop over to San Stef.  We do love to pop up to visit Nikos though at Akrotiri and we also call in at the Gravia bar (can't remember their names now, but we always get a warm welcome)

Mick, how did you recognise me? At that point in your graphic the forum had gone down for 20 seconds.....

It all depends which mark, m8. I come up to many Marks, and they coudn't care less. Marys seem a bit more interested, even my mother's sister who we called Babs,  but being rooted in County Roscommon, it is always the Micks that I come up to.....

What great news after a lovely sunny Sunday here in Eyemouth. Can't wait to walk the trail again, especially as we have friends staying in San Stephanos while we are in Arillas. Looking forward to a few cocktails in the Akrotiri! Thanks Dimitri. Well done!! x

Val, I love the mother-in-law really, I just try to hide it well. We're bringing Nic's parents this year as they've been so good to us over the years we wanted to give them a treat for once. We messed around so much in picking the right villa that the one we wanted (Linakis) was booked by the time we made our decision! We've ended up having to book a villa (Romanza) over the hill in San Steph unfortunately, but we'll be over in arillas at some point each day. We fly 3 weeks today.
