May be Moving to Cyprus. Anyone have a similar experience?

I resigned last week and am thinking of leaving this dismal hellhole of London, for some fun in the sun. I potentially have a chance to move to Cyprus and take a bar job out there for a few months over the summer. I’ve done my research and looked at the cost of living vs wages, accommodation and way of life, but I have not heard any first hand experiences. Have you been given up the rat race in search of a better life? It doesn’t have to by Cyprus, anywhere really. If so, I would like to know also what it was like coming back to the UK and picking up your life again. Thanks

I'd advise against it. My husband lived there for a while with his parents and they hated it. He said the people were horrible, and they were unbelievably cruel to animals.
