Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

I think what the discussion illustrates is the difference between a "business idea" and a "business plan". As an ex-business manager I would say DobbyThehouseElf has a "business idea" but, as yet, he doesn't have a "business plan". Most people I know regard st...

Re: Advance Notice - RHD Van For Sale

Since it's UK registered it might be worth telling potential buyers by what date it has to be out of Greece, Tim, i.e. 6 months after it arrived.

Re: Ears syringed

He's at 17 Tzanakaki Street. The marker on the linked map is not completely accurate. Tzanakai Street runs away from the Cross Market and has a branch of the National Bank of Greece on the corner. If you walk up it on the left hand side with your back to the Cross Market you pass the tax office, the...

Re: Ears syringed

I've always used THEOFANIS LAMPRINAKIS in the centre of Chania. He is an ear, nose and throat specialist who uses a suction machine to remove wax rather than syringing. It is regarded as a safer method. Typically GPs in the UK will not syringe unless the ear canal is totally blocked, as they claim t...

Re: Whither the Weather?

About 2 minutes of rain Saturday afternoon to the south west of Chania. Just enough to put a sheen on the terrace tiles.

PS Started to rain quite heavily here about 5 minutes after I posted this.

Re: lapidary items or stone tumbler

Order in the UK, e.g. ebay, and ship through Nomad if they won't ship abroad.

Re: Whither the Weather?

From the weather reports I've looked at we aren't exactly talking monsoon conditions. Perhaps 10 mm of rain spread over 5 days. Maximum daily temperature perhaps dropping as low as 28 C with minimum night time temperature down to 20 C. Not exactly Arctic. It would probably class as a heatwave in the...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

While I don't disagree with the figures you post I would still advise caution. The market does appear to be bottoming out but it may be a false bottom. Greek banks have over 40 % non-performing loans and many of those are mortgages. Despite a lot of pressure from Greece's creditors, so far there has...

Re: Fillipos help

You could also try Holiday Cars Chania . They are effectively a price comparison site so they search a lot of hire car companies, but not necessarily some of the smaller ones. I think Flisvos is one that Filippos has mentioned in the past, although that might have been in the context of buying used ...

Re: Small World

Since dam building is such a new, innovative, high-tech activity it is perhaps not surprising that Greece does not have the necessary engineering expertise to implement it successfully?

Re: Small World

I think the aim of the series was to illustrate the difference between March 2015, i.e. the end of winter so presumably a high point for the water level, when the water level was almost up to the roof of the church and now, when the water is hundreds of metres away from the church. Comparing photo 1...

I haven't heard any yet this year either, John. Possibly not hot enough?

Re: Greek Driving Licence

I asked a Greek friend today and he said that there had been talk of introducing a test at 74 but he doesn't think the new law has been implemented. If I find out anything else I will report back. Warwick PS I know a "good" trick cyclist, Bob, if you need one. I put "good" in quo...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

How recent, Bob? I last renewed my Greek licence in February 2017 and had to surrender the old one with the application. Do you still get the paper confirming that you have applied and submitted everything necessary? If not what are the rules about when you must apply? Unfortunately new Greek licenc...
