11th Orchid Walk
By Chris Elliott
We have just received details of the 11th Orchid Walk being held in 2014 on the 23rd February and it brings back many happy memories of when I went along to the 10th Orchid Walk in 2013 and spent a delightful day slowly driving over the mountain from Kozanköy School to Karşiyaka and picking up a few tired walkers along the way to arrive eventually at the finishing point at the village school where many walkers had started to arrive and had a good time enjoying the festivities and also a well earned rest.
This year’s 11th Orchid Walk also starts from Kozanköy and goes over the mountain and comes down into Karşiyaka and if it is a bright sunny day, it will be delightful to take part and also perhaps see the spring flowers starting to show their faces.
Last year I took many photographs of the people taking part and decided the best way to display them was to create a video slideshow which you can see below and also read more about it by clicking here.
The 2014 Event promises to be even bigger than last year and if you want to take part, tickets at 30TL can be obtained from Deniz Plaza in Nicosia, Gönyeli, Kyrenia and Famagusta.
Transport is being arranged from the pickup points shown on the poster below and further information can be obtained by calling 0533 863 4929 or 0542 857 3408.
