Re: New Airport at Kastelli

Yes Yomo2 we can look on the bright side ...As for a better experience once inside the terminal ....I don't see much wrong with the airport we have ....I tend to switch off in Airports ,train stations, whatever ...I just read and drink a coffee ,or a glass of wine ....and go into stasis ....

Re: New Airport at Kastelli

Hah ...Yes I know the Kastelli project is massive compared to the Sitia project ...and for us out in the East the Kastelli airport will be a bit nearer than the airport it replaces ...We do use Sitia for flights to Athens ..the new terminal is a massive improvement ..

Re: IKA Renewal

I would find it very hard to spend 100 euros in the Lidl we have in Sitia.. I can never find anything I want to buy or eat it all looks a bit grim and not very appetising. I go there sometimes and walk around with an empty trolly ,pick up a pack of cheap drill bits and a bunch of bananas ..and then...

Re: IKA Renewal

...Our Lidl bill is usually a bit over €100 but have never been asked to produce identity proof... No, you are correct Bob, it doesn't seem to happen anymore.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

As it looks like I won't have to return to the UK thanks to the WA, I'm just contemplating getting a Greek driving licence. If I do it now, will I have to renew in a few months time when I'm 65? If so, I might as well leave it. Any ideas?? Yes I got my Greek licence in the summer of 2018 'cos we we...
