Re: Heating oil price

Just for curiosity, in terms of therms, how far does a litre of heating oil go? I know that's a broad question, but on average, for an average house, in an average winter- now don't split hairs on this - I'll.Be there in April.

Re: Carry-On Counting

I can see your point, but let me explain something. Planes can carry quite a lot of stuff, but all the weight has to be accounted for in terms of getting the plane off the ground and the extra fuel required to do so. After watching a few episodes of Aircrash investigations, there have been a few acc...

Re: Sugaring

I haven't seen any places that do, but here's something you may find interesting if you would like to make your own!
It seems pretty easy and much cheaper than what you can buy in the expensive shops!

Dried Gourds

Does anyone know of, or have seen, any shops / emporiums selling dried gourds on their travels? Now I don't mean mini gourds, or the knobbly type, but large, preferably round - I mean without too long a neck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Anyone play an acoustic instrument?

Well, judging by the deluge of replies, maybe I'll just do some busking! Seriously, though Licensing and tax requirements? So we can't earn honest black money anymore? (Only joking!) No I wasn't aware of these irritations. Are they painful, or is it all based on what is earned. Maybe I'll have to do...

Re: Meet the Britsh Ambassador, Chania

Although I can't be there, it would be interesting to find out what she has to say and what answers she gives to your questions. Anyone up for it?

2nd Hand Shops Chania Apokoronas?

Maybe this topic has been covered before, but as old ones die out, new ones appear. Does anyone know even if these exist anymore? I was in Chania a few weeks ago, but owing to time constraints, didn't see any on our travels. Well, anywhere really, not limited to Chania, I will have a largish trailer...

Re: Kalyves Gym?

THanks, guys. Incidentally, the gym is not for me it's for my partner as she's a gym workaholic for 3 - 4 hours in the mornings. She went to the one in Kalyves, but wasn't impressed with the opening hours - she's very much an 0600 (Yes in the morning!!!) type, for exercises and they don't do that in...
