Cyprus Mail
A minute with Life & Style

A minute with Eve Moore Student who last year rehomed more than 100 Cyprus dogs


Where do you live?
The majority of the time I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK but I spend a good few months per year in Cyprus in Kalo Chorio, Klirou, where I stay with my dad.

Best childhood memory?
Bike rides, camping trips and rockpooling with my best friend Ellie on our holidays. Nothing better than being outdoors!

Most frequented restaurant and favourite dish? What food would you really turn your nose up to?
We recently discovered an amazing fish taverna up in Ayios Epifanios where I could quite happily go for lunch every single day. The fish meze is by far the best choice and every dish is cooked to perfection, in particular the slow cooked octopus. The only two foods that I don’t particularly like are runny egg yolks and cinnamon, but I don’t encounter them on a regular basis.

What did you have for breakfast?
I’m terrible with breakfast, I hate having to eat in the morning. Is it okay to say I had chocolate? Because I did have chocolate.

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
I work much better at night as opposed to during the day. I hate mornings so I’m incredibly unproductive at this time of the day. My perfect day out would probably be walking a huge pack of dogs along the coastline or in the countryside. Once I’ve adopted a huge pack of dogs I might be able to make that a reality.

Best book ever read?
The whole Harry Potter series I personally think is exceptional. I never wanted them to end and I still feel massively attached to them. The books and the films are both great in their own way and aside from Lord of the Rings I think Harry Potter is the only set of books that I could sit down and read multiple times without them losing the magic.

Favourite film of all time?
World War Z. Not only is Brad Pitt in it but it’s full of zombies, what’s not to love?

Favourite holiday destination or best holiday ever taken? What’s your dream trip?
In October last year me and my best friend visited Poland rather spontaneously and it was the best trip I’d been on in a long time. Krakow was lovely, especially the old town, and we were so intrigued by Auschwitz and Birkenau that we spent two whole days there. It was eye opening and very sad, but incredible never the less. I would definitely visit again, people were welcoming, the food was amazing, the vodka was even better, it’s definitely worth the trip and is a great place to explore. My dream trip would probably be to Thailand or Australia, primarily for the wildlife and landscapes.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Pentatonix – their new album is insanely good.

What is always in your fridge?
Salad cream. In case you were wondering, it goes well with EVERYTHING.

Dream house rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be and what would it be like?
Rural most definitely. Anywhere with a beautiful surrounding environment would be perfect for me. Somewhere relatively near the sea, or in the forests, mountains or countryside would be lovely, and I’d definitely need some land for all the animals that I would have. I’d love a miniature farm with some rescued domestic animals, including numerous dogs.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out with for the evening, who would it be?
Steve Irwin – the crocodile hunter. I bet he would have had some amazing stories to tell and experiences to share. I wish I could see some of the things he did in his lifetime.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what do you do?
Eat everything in sight and cuddle my dogs.

What is your greatest fear?
Sharks and open water

Tell me a joke…
What did the buffalo say to his son as he left for school?
