Re: Day trip to Santorini

I met a German couple holidaying here a month ago. ................. In the day the cruise liners came in and it was like ‘playing sardines’ everywhere. - They could not wait to get back to Kriti. They did say though that is is a beautiful island. Just returned from 14 days on a gorgeous island ver...

Re: Income Tax Submissions

No, DWP do not send out any form of statement. You get a letter around this time of year telling you what your weekly payment rate will be starting from X April. We received ours a couple of weeks ago. I presume that you mean that you received the letter informing you of the payment rate from X Apr...

Re: OTE Landline contracts

Your OTE contract must have been renewed more recently than 17 years ago if you have VDSL50! It didn't exist back then? Quite right Carol. I originally had 56K dial up which was upgraded to ADSL as soon as it became available. Then, a few years ago (don't remember exactly when) OTE phoned, singing ...

Re: OTE Landline contracts

When contacted by anyone speaking Greek I usually explain, in Greek, that I am English and ask if they speak English. Sometimes they switch immediately to English and sometimes they hang up. Exactly what I do and usually the response to "Μιλάτε Αγγλικά;" is, "Of course." This ti...

Re: OTE Landline contracts

I have just renewed mine, but it includes the Broadband. I'm presuming yours doesn't?............ Mine does includes broadband (VDSL50) and basic phone service without any of the packages of free minutes on offer. We probably use the house phone to make as many as, ooohhhh, 8 to 10 calls within Gre...

OTE Landline contracts

Last Friday, in the course of five hours, I received three phone calls from OTE, each from individuals with less English than I have Greek. (I can get by in shops and basic conversation but don't have much vocabulary for things outside my experience or that only arise every now and again). During ca...

Re: Madness at Meskla!

You could always knock up a sign yourself and plant it where appropriate. Local Cretans won't bothers as they'll all know about the short cut hazards.

Re: Land Plot and sqm of house

I think it depends on how far beyond the village boundary the plot is located. I don't know the distances involved but there are/were three zones - within the village boundary, within x metres of the boundary 2000m² required and beyond y metres needing 4000+m². I'm not up to date with the actual dis...
