Re: UK Bank accounts for ex pats

Sorry, bob. I no longer understand what you're trying to say. It's really simple. My bank requires an address where they can write to me, should they need to. I have supplied them with a suitable address. They have not asked me if I live there, and I have not claimed so to do. Tim Most of the info ...

Re: New measures announced

There was a wedding at Lake Kournas on Saturday attended by 1000 people. In short, the police from Chania, Rethymno and Herakleion turned up to try and turn back 950 people and failed! They were either told to go away or decided to go away themselves at 1.30am. The party continued until 5am!!! It wa...

Re: New measures announced

I'm sure I've read somewhere in the Greek press this morning, that weddings can still take place with upto 50 people ha ha, but there can't be more than 9 people gathering together for other reasons???? After the Kournas 1000 event, I despair! I've also been thinking about the message from the Major...

10 of the 14 in Chania were from 1 hotel. 1 other case was related to a previous case. Nothing about the other 2? Hi, BST, where did you get this info, that 10 cases are from a single hotel? Thanks, R Sorry I can't remember but saw a reference again to it this morning saying a tourist/visitor to th...

Re: Cost of driving licenses

Just spoke with lady at Souda. You are correct Warwick. At 65 your licence has "expired" in Greece so you pay the extras for renewal even though it's your first Greek licence. If anyone has got away with paying 30 euros over 65, they are lucky!!
