NEW stamp to honour Cyprus' Nobel Prize winner.

NEW stamps to honour Cyprus' Nobel Prize winner Christopher Pissarides to be issued in June 2011.




The stamp will feature a photo of Professor Pissarides, with a background dedicated to the Nobel winner’s work.


It was suggested that with Cyprus being such a small country and producing such a renowned Nobelist, a stamp to honour him was clearly the thing to do.


The stamp will go into circulation on June 8 this year with a printed value of €1,71 and can be used for letters sent locally as well as the rest of Europe and other countries.


600,000 copies will be printed for the first day of circulation and 8,000 special envelopes will be available at a cost of €2,05.


Pissarides won the Nobel for Economics last autumn and has been hailed as a national hero, both for his work, and for promoting Cyprus abroad.


In addition the Bank of Cyprus in Greece is planning an event in honour of the professor next month although full details have not yet been finalised.

Cruising from Cyprus - looks interesting, but is it enough?

I got an email today with a special cruise offer on one of the Thomson ships which looks very interesting for 7 nights on 6th April, taking in Turkey, Egypt and Israel at a fantastic price from €299pp!

But, I really do fancy the option offered sailing around the Red Sea which takes in Egypt (Alexandria and Safaga for Luxor) plus the Rose Red city of Petra in Jordan.

I'm hoping that one may come up later in the year so we can celebrate my other half's 50th birthday - but not quite sure how to get to Sharm el Sheikh to pick up the cruise? Not done my homework on the flights yet so don't know if we have to fly Larnaca to Cairo and onwards to Sharm or if there is a direct route from Paphos perhaps?

Ideas anyone? Makes a change - me doing the asking!

Check out the special cruise offer I got from Century Travel.

What happened to the Tall Ships stamp issue for March 2011?

Some changes to the preliminary list of stamp issues.

The next 2 Cyprus stamp issues are due for release on Wednesday 23 March.

Please note: the issue entitled "Cyprus Embrodery" appears to replace the originally indicated issue entitled "Tall Ships". There is no information to indicate there will be 3 stamp issues on 23 March.
Therefore, we assume the Tall Ships issue has either been cancelled or put back to a later date. The Cyprus Embroidery issue was on the preliminary issue list for 8 June 2011. 

You can find the preliminary list of all Republic of Cyprus stamps for 2011 here.
