Re: Where to buy boot laces in Irkalio?

It may be hearsay, or incorrect translation from local dialect, but it was overheard once in a kafenion that there is a village high in the mountains famed for its shoe laces, and is their main form of livelihood. It is however ..... only accessible on foot. Maybe try those boutique places after all.

Re: Departing/Entering Greece After Brexit

My understanding is that we shall all be rounded up and interned much as the Italians were in the UK during the War. In view of this, a Royal Navy frigate is currently on passage to make secret landfall on the South Coast of Crete the night of Brexit for all those wishing to be evacuated. Details of...

Re: In the foothills of the White Mountains.

Wow, it sounds like you have a beautiful place there, and the picture you paint draws the interest and imagination further. The enticing air of mystery regarding the exact location, however, may be assisted by tenuous clues ( which Village is overlooked maybe ) and probably add to the varied enquiri...

Re: Internet connection for visitors

Ah yes … and looking into it further, there seem precious few Tablets that sport a USB slot … certainly mine does not have one - however I have used a Wind USB stick very successfully on a laptop. So anyway, the prices for access are the same for access with the mifi modem which is ( as mentioned el...

Re: Internet connection for visitors

All assistance given so far by responders correct, and you would probably need to be the one to purchase. If still interested ( no response noted from yourself ? ) presuming your friend's' tablet has a USB port, the USB Stick / Dongle / Modem for example from Wind shall cost about 45 Euros, the rele...

Re: Teenagers & Internet

Yes the current tendency for teenagers to be tethered to their mobiles being "inescapable" ( with the rest of us not too far behind ) so shall try to assist whilst not encourage. As already advised the recent new Roaming situation may be timely in your case, but your daughters must find ou...

Re: Estate agents contact for long term house rental

Having read your recent Posting, the lack of varied advice offered ( although the answer to your question swiftly and precisely given by one of our website grandees ) may be due to the factor of Heraklion itself, although a handsome and noble City, not perhaps the choice that many would make when ch...

Probably irrelevant, but is it presumed you at some stage "restarted" or were required to "restart" your computer ? Trying this is sometimes forgotten, but is the unlikely solution to numerous unfathomable problems .....
