Re: Direct flight to Gatwick this morning.......

Agree Clio. The highway has been very dangerous during this terrible weather we have had, even my local resort village has been affected, like post places I imagine

Re: Direct flight to Gatwick this morning.......

Fortunately Warwick there are flights twice a week in the winter time with Easyjet to Bristol, which is my home town, so it would only involve 2 flight and only a few hours end to end stop over in Athens. I guess not everyone in the UK can get flights direct from Athens.

Re: IKA and AMKA

Thanks Warwick.
I was issues it from the KEP office in Kalyves and was told if I ever needed to go to hospital for any reason, then I can show the number.
So having the AMKA isnt like an NI number in the UK where you receive basic health care cover on the NHS.

Re: Direct flight to Gatwick this morning.......

At least if we do wish to go back during the winter months, its only a short flight across the sea to Athens with good connections to the major airports, I guess its not too much of a bother.

Re: Direct flight to Gatwick this morning.......

I think most of us dream of a direct flight from Heraklion, or preferably Chania but in reality I don't think it will happen, not because the airlines don't want it. I am sure there is a market for it, but I believe in my opinion, its the tourist industry work so hard in the summer that they prefer ...

Re: Eastern Crete

I actually agree with people that say dogs in the Apokoronas are not looked after well. Every night I have to listen to a yapping dog until late because the so called owners don't give a toss about the thing. Its tied to a tree on a 6 foot lead and constantly yaps at everything that moves until i gu...

Re: automated car parking system at Chania Airport

I didnt mean the airport terminal, I meant the ticket booth. I had a good deal because I downloaded the app which entitled me to 20% off the normal parking fee if I use the app. I have only used the new system once and I got it wrong because I didnt know about getting the ticket validated before I d...

automated car parking system at Chania Airport

Has anybody used this yet?

I have bought a parking ticket from Cityzen App for a week because it was such a good price.

My question is do I need to go to the terminal in the carpark to get the ticket validated, or do I just drive to the gate and hope the barrier raises.

Thanks in advance

Re: slow ote internet today

Not really there is only 3 of us on the complex. I do know though that my box has a cable coming out of it into my house and a cable also runs to a neighbours house. I wasn't living here permanently when this happened. A friend told me about it when I next came out. I guess they were too tight to pa...
