If you ever looked up information about Cyprus, chances are that you have seen some gorgeous shots of flamingos. These stunning creatures are frequent guests of the island, gracing everyone with their presence every winter. Thousands of tourists come to Cyprus just to witness these fabulous birds. Do you want to know when and where you can catch a glimpse of them? Let us tell you all about it!
During the rainy season between November and March, Cyprus becomes a desirable destination for many migratory birds. Flamingos are especially attracted to the island because of its wonderful weather conditions and delicious brine shrimps. As a matter of fact, brine shrimps are their favourite food!
These pink birds travel from all over the Mediterranean region to settle in Cyprus for the winter. They arrive from the nearby islands, North Italy, Turley, Sardinia and Iran salt lakes to warm their feet in the waters of Cyprus lakes.
Flamingos seem to really like Cyprus, as more than 15,000 of them come to the island every winter. However, do not be surprised if you see flamingos during other times of the year as well. Some non-breeding flamingos stay on the island all year round if the lakes are not completely dry.
Some of the most favourite spots for flamingos are the Cyprus salt lakes. For the most part of the year, they are usually dry, but they fill out during the rainy months of winter and become home for the pink-feathered birds. Most popular lakes are Larnaca, Akrotiri (Limassol), Oroklini and Paralimni lakes. If you want to witness these majestic creatures yourself, add these places to your travel map!
One of the lakes, namely the Akrotiri salt lake, even has a fascinating legend behind its saltiness. According to the story, Saint Lazarus (Agios Lazaros) once asked an old woman for some food and water. The woman refused his request and said that her vines had dried. To this, Lazarus replied: “May your vines be dry and be a salt lake forever more.” Read more in comment ⬇️⬇️⬇️#tripmarbles#trip#travelblogger#travel#holidays#cyprus#cyprustags#cypruslife#cyprus2018#larnaca#saltlake#flamingo

Low-carb diets are popular today, but for many they are not ideal. #Carbohydrates are your body's primary fuel for #workouts . If you will be exercising vigorously for an extended period, go for slow-digesting carbs like oatmeal or yams which will release glucose over time. Including #fats and #proteins with your carbs will additionally slow release of glucose. Oh, and did we mention? Carbs are great for growing a nice ass!!
God has blessed me with a small number of long-term friendships. @scottholthaus is one of them. More than a friend, he’s a brother. I’m so thankful that he and @rebeccaholthaus jumped out in faith to come to #SaltLake .
PS It doesn’t suck to be able to take our weekly meeting in the mountains. ⛰
