            Looking down the North Face and over the North Shoulder into North Cyprus
 
 
         
 
 
            North Face uplift from the Dias Restaurant - the 'T' bar tow has now been replaced with a chairlift

            My white VW Passat Estate in the foreground is a legend!
               It's driven all around Cyprus, North and South, and completed two return trips from the UK.
               That's 5,000km (3,000m) each way - down through autobahn Europe, the Balkan countries, 
               Turkey and finally the ferry boat to Kyrenia - happy days!
