“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Many geocachers love to explore the world, plan ahead, and achieve caching goals. One of the more common questions we get asked is “When is [insert recurring geocaching moment] this year?” This year, we’re letting people know the dates for annual events, well ahead of time. So cachers, this may be the year that you finally decide to attend an Event Cache or even, *GASP!* host your own!

Additionally, we will run several promotions in the coming year (similar to Planetary Pursuit and Hidden Creatures) that we’re not quite ready to announce yet. Make sure to follow the Geocaching blog, Facebook, Twitter, and newsletter (sign up here) for more information as we roll out those geo-moments.

The confirmed souvenir moments for 2019 are: Continue reading →

Geocaching country souvenir: Cyprus

Cyprus is the third largest and most populous island country in the Mediterranean. At 9,251 km² (3,572 mi²) and over 1.1 million inhabitants, the country is full of a vibrant culture with a rich past spanning over 10,000 years. One moment you might be exploring the glorious rocky coastline, the next you may find yourself surrounded by an archaeological site filled with historical intrigue. Here are three facts to pique your interest:

  • Famed for its spectacular beaches, the crystal clear Cypriot waters are designated among the cleanest in the world thanks to the work of the Cyprus Marine Environment Protection Association. The temperature of the open sea ranges from 16° (60° F) during the coolest months and climbs to 27° C (80° F) in August.
  • Cyprus is one of only four European countries that drive on the left side of the road. The other three are the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Malta.
  • With so much magic in the air, it’s little wonder that Aphrodite, Ancient Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty, is famed to have risen from the shores of the island’s west coast.

If you get lost exploring the 1,100+ active caches in Cyprus, here are three to set your sails in the right direction:
