Visiting Cyprus for 8 months!

Hi, I am accompanying my husband to Cyprus for 8 months of work, can anyone tell me what there is to do around Cyprus, possibly Nicosia, when you are at home during the day with a 1 year old child? Is there access to gyms, play groups for kids etc? I am an aussie and am worried about getting bored!

Thank you!

Depends where you will leave, if you will have access to a car etc. Of course there are gyms -- in my neighbourhood there are 3 but I leave in a central location. I am sure though that no matter where you leave there will be one within a 15 minute walking distance.

There are also nice parks that you can go with the kid and they are filled with monthers with their kids.

I hope you drive cause in Cyprus it is hard if you do not have a car.

Try to find out from your husband where you will be living and I will find a few places to reccommend to you in your neighbourhood. If you want to e-mail me directly kcharala@yahoo.com

No need to worry about being bored. Nicosia especially has a lively foreign contingency. Check 1st with the high commission for a ladies group, they will introduce you to other pax as well.

Important to have a car or mode of transport. Near impossible to live in Cyprus without a car.

Lots of gyms including pilates & yoga studios, depending on the area.

Are you into Lioness, Ladies Circle etc. ? get an intro from your club pres for the local clubs they meet often for social and other dos.
