Re: Flying after December 31st

As I understand it, ECAA rules don’t have a similar requirement.

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

20 years ago when I first visited Crete there were quite a few locals around who had experienced first hand the true horror of what fascism really is.

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

I’ve always been good at cribbing phrases from others if they’re good - something I learnt at school many years ago. :D

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

This is the end of the holiday season in Crete. Yet it is quite likely these people gave the virus to each other having brought it with them from the U.K. and the real fault is with the British authorities for not enforcing proper track and trave procedures. Expect both U.K. and Greece to introduce ...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

It’s completely off topic. Sorry.

My other half has got a £60 flight from Bristol to Chania (return) in early October. I shall be thinking of all in Crete as I take my daughters to school during that time.

Re: Flying Crete - UK

There are quite a few rules the school has. Each of our two daughters will go in on different days for a day of familiarisation/rule setting including “traffic” directions when moving around (though this is limited as all lessons in the same classroom) only half the school is there, then they will g...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

It’s another issue of trade offs just like the economy vs the virus. If children don’t go to school they will be harmed, if they do go and spread the virus they’ll harm other, older people even if they themselves are ok. What we will do; take daughters to school and collect them after school by car ...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Oh thanks Guy I do find it a tad hypocritical when some feel it is not safe to send their kids to school on plague island but willing to take their family through airports and aircraft full of people from said plague island, But it's a free world mostly, and we all have our opinions views and moral...

Re: East Med Gas Pipeline

As the World moves to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, the pipeline may never get built and the gas will stay where it is.

If this happens, this dispute will be “two bald men fighting over a comb” (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

East Med Gas Pipeline

Has anyone been following the dispute between Greece and Turkey over rights to gas resources in the East Med? This has been brewing for years, but recent discoveries plus the planned East Med pipeline (which is set to run right by the NE tip of Crete) has given it an added focus. Even got an Economi...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

For the record: We wore masks properly throughout our time in Crete and in the U.K. Not this “mask over mouth only”, “mask on chin” or “no mask” stuff you often see in Crete (more so than where we live in the U.K.). Our house in Crete is in a field - cramped housing is likely a major cause of transm...
