My next adventure: Southern India (Chennai, Pollachi,  Kochi) – August 2024

Day 1 (Limassol) – The Larnaca Airport Experience

I swear that the more one flies to destinations, the quicker it feels! Anyway, to round off this years travels, I decided to head back down to the Mediterranean and explore Cyprus, in particular, the cosmopolitan city of Limassol.

As the city is located between Larnaca and Paphos, one had a choice of airports. I chose Larnaca as it is the islands biggest airport meaning less chance for Superbunny to be mishandled by the baggage handlers. After a 4 hour flight from old Bristol, we touched down at said airport where we were almost immediately greeted by the ambulift (partly due to the airport wishing to turnaround the plane before a thunderstorm rolled in), however they insisted on taking Superbunny with the rest of the luggage for us to collect inside the terminal. Instead of wheeling it into the terminal, said baggage handlers decided to haul the 105kg chair onto a trolley which they wheeled out and then simply walked off leaving us to get the thing ourselves…memories of Riga, don’t you think?

As the intercity transportation in Cyprus isn’t really geared up to accommodate electric wheelchairs, one booked an accessible taxi to the hotel courtesy of Johns Cyprus Taxis.

We are staying at the NYX Hotel in Limassol which is a stones throw (well a dual carriageway) away from the promenade and the Mediterranean. Although the room isn’t exactly accessible and makes one have vertigo with its swanky design, it does have a rooftop bar and pool overlooking the Mediterranean and the ever increasing skyline…

Tomorrow is about being a tourist and checking out the main sights of Limmasol…
