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.

Rather than chemical sprays, cucumber peel worked on cockroaches in Florida. Just saying.

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 ...

You really do need the help of a Greek.Officialdom is more likely to listen to a native speaker.

Re: Wasps still around

When pestered by wasps at a local taverna,the owner puts a saucer on the table with a small amount of ground coffee on it, then sets fire to it. Keeps them away very effectively. I have no idea whether it is Greek coffee or another variety. Fortunately the wasps don’t seem to care.
