Photographer's Note

Cyprus is a good place for exploring and hiking. We did not find any decent and detailed maps of the west of the island, and the ones they hand out for free are wrong more often than not. They distinguish between four classes of roads, but often it seems to have little to do with the quality, the width and the surface of the road. So if one is exploring by car, it is good to have fourwheel drive, and if one is on foot, a GPS comes in very handy. There are plenty of easy-to-walk trails that actually go a very long way into and around the hills - but are not found on any map. That of course is exactly what makes it challenging and makes the hiker feel like an explorer. And when the views are constantly as stupendous as this, what more can you ask for?

Resized and sharpened for the web,
