Cyprus photos are on their way...

I arrived at the University of Surrey last weekend and have settled in very well. My Mathematics course starts this week. I have finally found time to look at the 1,609 (which has been cut down to 54) photos I took in Cyprus on our family holiday during the first two weeks of September. I am in the process on editing the best ones and hope to post them shortly - keep checking!

We had an incredible two weeks in Cyprus in September, with a couple of days of fantastic birdwatching! We saw about 20 new species! The best moment was swimming alongside a Green sea turtle (not the one pictured) at a beach for about 15 minutes. It was such a shock and an incredible experience!
