Does anyone know exactly what kind of baby stroller is allowed onto an airplane. I have been told by B.A. that it has to be the size of a carry-on, but i cannot find a stroller with the height of 56 cm. (its totally unheard of!) Does anyone have experience bringing a stroller onto a BA place...I don't want to check one in. Thanks infokath

Does anyone out there have an umbrella stroller? The small easy type that can be folded up like an umbrella--especially handy for travelling? infokath

hi, my 2 1/2 yr old has started at the local private nursery and there seems to be at least 25 kids to each member of staff. The manager says they have guidelines from the ministry saying 20 kids to 1 staff but the international school kindergarten says the rules are 13 to 1. Either way it doesn't seem to matter what age they are and is much larger than the uk. Does anyone know what it should be? Thanks

Hi everyone, I am looking for some help to find a drama school on the island, preferably Paphos, for my kids who are 9 and 6. We are planning to move out early next year but we are wavering because our 9 year old daughter is a very talented and promising actress and we need to find somewhere for her to be able to continue doing what she does until she is old enough to be able to make her own choices. Any information anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I’m 17 weeks pregnant, my first pregnancy and the Cypriot pregnancy care seems to leave you on your lonesome. I’ve got a Gynaecologist at the Arch Bishop Makarios 3rd hospital in Nicosia but no one seems to answer any question directly. I’m not due for my 5 month scan until the 26th June, well a little over 5 months and my next check up is just after that. Every time I ask about a Mid wife that you get assigned too, they look at me blankly, not to mention I have had to find out a majority of pregnancy things myself, as the med care here really is bad (compared to the UK). How does the mid wife thing work? Is there a place in Nicosia that will advice you accordingly, rather than telling you the simple facts and brushing you off? I ask, because the male Gyn I see, his English is very limited and the female one just doesn’t tell you anything in full. Sorry to sound like I am moaning; just want to be sure of everything. Thank you xx

Have been holidaying in Cyprus for many years and have finally taken the plunge and bought an apartment in Peyia with a view to moving over permanently. Can't face many more of the British winters! We are coming over in April for a week and again for a few weeks over the summer to check out our career/business prospects but one thing hindering any thoughts of moving is our 10 year old son who is dead set against leaving his friends behind. He is a very active boy interested in football, skateboarding, running, golf, fishing etc and I'm sure he'd settle fine but I thought if could find out about any clubs that he could go to whilst over on holiday and make new friends he wouldn't be so set against the move. Any advice on any activities that may suit him in the Paphos area would be greatly appreciated.Tracy

Oh my gawd!!!! I have read and re-read the various posts regarding life and living in cyprus. I must comment on the extreme differences in the details. If you move over and start your own business you seem to do alright -but what are you all starting your own business's at!!!!! Anyone who comes over extpecting work to earn their living tend to be disappointed unless they are a professional. The crux of our questions, which i would like answered honestly, are schooling for our children, aged 4 and 5, i think it would have to be english private schools, therefore what are the fees? My husband is currently a sales rep for coca cola and i am a book keeper for an independant builder/developer and also a registered (NI) childminder. What real financial prospects does this offer considering private education costs etc. As this is an open and honest forum, I would be greatful for someone to relinquish their patriatism and tell me, is there a distinction by locals between English and Irish ( as being Irish we generally don't get a great press) Many thanks in anticipation Angela & Neal
