It dates from 1998, so some of the places and situations have moved on, but that doesn’t detract in any way from a real story, very well told.
This is the chronicle of an unparalleled walk into the realm of Aphrodite; of a journey that takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride through a mosaic of mountain villages, hushed valleys and coastal plains.
It is also the story of a man’s courage to overcome disability. With a lifelong bronchial condition, the author’s quest to raise funds for a Paphos hospital is set against formidable odds. His seven hundred kilometre trek across some of the island’s most isolated terrain, embraces the wild beauty of its landscape with a magical insight into Cypriot life; its characters, their kindness and hospitality, the sad and humerous encounters… all are skillfully interwoven with antiquity, history and legend.
In a region for its archaeological sights and ancient mosaics, this book portrays not only adventure – but can be enjoyed as a guide to the many splendours of Paphos.
The author illuminates these varied and colourful features in prose that captures the real enchantment of springtime in Cyprus.
