But you already look ten years younger, and probably feel it.

Re: Highway Roadworks near Aptera

Yes, we did exactly the same thing. It seems that the police have a system to regulate the flow now. As the traffic was building up on the east side of the lights, a patrol car arrived and a policeman emerged, taking over control from the lights and directing cars against the red light.

Re: Flight time and taxi help!

Speaking from recent experience, Aegean responded very well when we had a very short connection time and missed the connection. The delay was caused by a "technical", and Aegean booked us onto a BA flight on the same route and with just enough time to transfer. We had assistance from Aegea...

Re: Flights

Many years ago, long befoe the Brexit vote, a very good German friend explained that the aim of the EU was a common currency, a common language, and political unity under one (unelected by EU population) president. How will your grandchildren like the possibility of English being chosen as their sec...

Runs around Phil? That would be too energetic. Amusing picture though.
Maggie, I just left peel lying around. It seemed to work, I am very happy to report.

Re: New House Purchase

The last time I looked at ArB&B there was an additional item for Kilkis‘ list. Someone tocollect the cash from arriving guests. I think they were working on a better arrangement for absentee owwners. I have no idea if they found one.

Re: New House Purchase

I second Philippos’ remarks about 13 week letting. It would not be very profitable to use an agency as their fees are around 25%. The advent of AirB&B has caused a massive amount of competition in this market, so to cover costs of cleaning, laundry and maintenance, utilities etc the only people ...
