Re: Why Did Vote LEave Win?

Kilkis scribbled Either way it was certainly a case of "Pull up the ladder Jack, I'm OK" since UK citizens going forward will no longer enjoy the rights that you have enjoyed but obviously that doesn't affect you so why should you care? So ALL expats are pulling up stakes, packing their b...

Re: Clearing out old papers

In the almost 11 years that I have lived here I have never kept any receipt unless it was required for a warranty, TV etc. My Accountant never once asked for them. Now there is no need to keep them, announced last year by the Government. What you are expected to do is to make at least 30% of your de...

Re: Marks and Spencer Heraklion

Can anyone familiar with M&S in Heraklion please advise whether they have a good range of men's suits? Plenty on the website, I'm well aware, but want to check quality/fit without the faff of possibly having to return. I have not visited them this year, but last year and on other year visits th...

Re: Crete Documentary

There is an ITV documentary series on the Greek Islands that has just aired in the UK called 'The Greek Islands with Julia Bradbury'. Each episode is (somewhat disappointingly) 30 minutes long. In the first episode she visits Crete and takes in the Dikti Mountains, Lassithi Plateau, Rethymno and Sp...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Kilkris wrote A medical test and an eye test are compulsory every 3 years from the age of 65 in Greece, not 75, and have been for many years. As Bob says, from 80 onwards you also need a psychiatric evaluation as well as the medical and eye test. As Theresa May would say, "Nothing has changed&...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Has anyone heard any more regarding the Medical tests for those over 75 years?. I am still waiting, my Greek Temporary Licence has now expired as has my UK licence. My visit to the Office in Ag. Nik just got a Greek shrug and I was told to come back week commencing 6 January, but not on the 6th as i...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Why are you all so concerned with UK Politics?. Especially now that the Conservative Party have such a large majority and will eventually get the UK out of the EU. Surly the concern should be in the Country that we live in, Greece. I, and am certain the majority of those expats that use this forum, ...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

So now we have Johnson, a hard Brexit, the economy will tank.


There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Have you seen the exchange rate sterling to euros. Not been this high for some time.

Hi Clio, Yes I have read Cornwell's book on Waterloo, read about 3 or 4 weeks ago. If you enjoy Cornwell as an Author I can recommend his extremely large book, Stonehenge. As for the Sean's Historic series, we stopped watching it. Not enjoyable at all. I have ordered from ebay the missing videos. I ...

Re: BRIDGE

Arguing at Bridge can turn nasty, my group prefer a short analysis if the contract is not made. We used to argue and through that lost a Player. Good news is that we have a potential new Player who has played Partner Whist and wants to learn Bridge. Bridge is a wonderful game, very good for the Brai...
