Re: Theft of wood! Hidden CCTV cameras in our olive trees?

Does anyone remember a report, during the winter, of 90 olives being cut down during one night? Somewhere near Kissamos?

Re: Greece Flight Ban Extended to 15 May 2020

Trying in vain to get a refund from Ryan Air for a flight Chania to Bristol on 10th May. No refund available since the flight has not been cancelled. How can that be?

Re: FULL Lockdown Monday 6a.m. in Greece

Regarding the threat posed by driving to a remote spot to take exercise, the reasoning being pushed here (borders of Dartmoor, proximity to beaches) is that your journey is unnecessary. If you were involved in an accident or broke down you would divert resources away from more pressing needs. I was ...

Re: 14 Day Quarantine - Arrivals Greece

We have tickets to Heraklion on 15th April. Our house is in Koukounara, above Kissamos. We had intended to use public transport from airport to home. Assuming that the flight goes, how would this quarantine be imposed? Interrogation at the airport? Who would be checking to see that we remained in ou...

Pruning Bougainvillea is like hand to hand warfare. Don't step on the prunings wearing flip-flops. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Re: Channel 5: My New Greek Life

Episode 2: We learn more. Theriso lady is on the pull. The waiter in the taverna, (I think he is the proprietor. We ate at the same table a couple of years ago) the rat catcher, (I have something to show you upstairs...) and the shepherd. (Oh no, not the shepherd. Its the lingering smell you know). ...

Re: Flights

Used Sky express as first leg of homeward journey, allowing 2 hours plus to make the connecting flight. On arrival at Chania they told me that the flight was running 45 min late and the insisted on booking my cabin bag into the hold. The aircraft landed in Chania 45 minutes later and, to the airline...

Overnight in Heraklion

Looking for alternatives to our normal Easter Ryanair flight Bristol - Chania (which don't start this year until early May). Considering Bristol-Heraklion with Easyjet which arrives 21:35 - too late for public transport to Chania then Kissamos. Can anyone recommend somewhere to spend the night? Easy...

Rotary Clothes Airer

Has anyone come across a supplier of these on Crete? Our Cretan neighbours were not aware that such things existed. Thinking of shipping one (or more) out from UK, perhaps by Nomad. Any thoughts?

Re: 2020 car tax

This year Piraeus Bank have added an extra layer of verification to their online procedure. They send SMS message to your phone containing a pin no. Which is fine as long as they have the correct no. on your account details.. Mine is a UK no. and I forgot to add the international prefix. Doh!
