Hello there, it’s been a while….
Well today’s post is about every little girl’s hero! My father! Specifically is about my father’s job which by the way is amazing and fits his personality: social, honest, friendly. My dad owns a bus company that deals with mainly with tourists. As a young girl I remember him driving me in school excursions, making me the star of the day. Later when I was a teenager, he decided to teach me how to drive his buses… well at least he tried..!:P I’m joking, I know how to drive these things but don’t let me park them, hahaha… In university we made a promise to each other; that one day we would make a road trip together. My point is, I appreciate my father’s wisdom and experience and today I wanted to give something back to him by posting this interview!
3Q&A’s with my father, Marios Charalambous (Kapnos)
A: I am a bus driver for the last 27 years. Waking up around 7am is typical. 8am I go to work. I am lucky because everyday I have to go somewhere else, everyday is different. I never get bored because I visit all the cities around the island. I enjoy the ride every time because i am with tourists and they teach me a lot about their culture. When I finish work I usually take the bus home and take my time to clean and wash it, like it’s my baby. My daughter always laughed at how I treat my buses and she said to people “My father loves my mother, his children but above all his buses..:)”.
Q: What is your favorite place in Cyprus?
A: From all the places I have seen in Cyprus so far, i believe Akamas peninsula has a distinct beauty that only a few people have seen because of the difficulty to reach it. Akamas is wild, untamed and that’s why is a unique beauty of our island.
Q: What is the time of the day you value most while driving?
A: Sunset! No matter where you are in Cyprus, there is something magical about sunsets.
Cheers daddy to everything you gave to me, to everything you taught me so far…
Cheers to everything that lies for us in the future, I promise to you the best is yet to come…
