It took Alkis almost three months to talk me into going walking with him along Mckenzie Beach which is only 5km away from home. On the one hand, there was the problem with my leg and on the other hand I love to sleep in on my short but precious summer break. I thought he was simply crazy to ask me to get up at 5:45 am every day. I like trying new things, though, so yesterday I said ok but... "would you please wake me up if I fall asleep on the sand? " His answer was: "You won't!"
When we got there, I was breathless! The most beautiful sunrise in Cyprus - and probably in the Eastern Med - was just next door! Only then did I realise what I've been missing all this time. Today I got up at 5:30 looking forward to walking along McKenzie Beach. I walked about 45 minutes at a slow pace right now as I'm following doctor's orders and covered 3,5 km. If you live in the area or nearby, get up early in the morning and take a walk along Mckenzie. You won't regret it!
