Re: Mosquitos

My guess is that Eleni strips off a length of cucumber peel and runs round trying to swat the roaches with it.

Re: Mosquitos

A blast from our anti-roach aerosol deals with them if we get to them in time as they're inclined to disappear quickly. Oddly enough we seem to have had fewer this year.

Re: Pireaus Bank

Does anyone have any more information? Couldn't use Pireaus debit card in Inka this morning and when I presented my card at two cash machines, one Pireaus and one a different bank, was told that Pireaus are experiencing technical difficulties. That's one of the reasons I use cash wherever possible:...

Could be something to do with the fact it's suddenly become much damper.

Re: How to become a greek resident

Vamos police station closed at least 12 months ago. As far as I know you need to go to the nearest one, which for you is probably Vrises, depending on precisely where you live .

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Yes ,but do they own any satellites .. as Warwick says they are buying or renting bandwidth from the owners of the satellites ? This from Wikipedia: "BBB purchases broadband capacity from a variety of satellite companies, sells or rents to the end user the necessary hardware to access the inte...

Re: How to become a greek resident

So do we literally go into our nearest Police Station and ask for a residence certificate? Not quite. First, visit your nearest police station and find out exactly what documents they want you to produce, how many Passport type photos, which papers need to be photocopied in what numbers and fill ou...

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Bigblu was formerly known Satellite Solutions Worldwide and have been growing quickly, partly through organic growth but mainly by acquiring smaller satellite internet providers and integrating them into the growing bigblu. They're the largest UK / EU provider and have a growing foothold in Scandina...

Re: How to become a greek resident

Apropos the comments by filippos and Warwick, yes I suppose it might depend on an individual seller or dealership ..... we bought ours from a main dealership... Both the cars I referred to were new and bought from a main dealership. The one I fell out with was Peugeot as was the one who finally pro...

Re: How to become a greek resident

...the point I make is that you could buy a car now without the need to have a residence card... not necessarily; it could depend on the dealer.

Re: Flight Delay Compensation

I've never understood why compensation for a relatively short delay is even as much as the cost of the delayed flight. It should work on the same principle as insurance; reimbursement of losses and necessary additional expenses. On a short haul flight delayed for a couple of hours you still reach yo...

Re: Airbnb

Well, apart from meeting eot requirements and/or setting up a properly constituted business with appropriate licence(s) you need to comply with airb&b requirements, which aren't too demanding and I don't thing they place any restriction on length of stay. The scheme started ostensibly on the pre...
