Re: Test - Error Messages

I don't know if it's relevant or helpful, Carol - but whereas going direct to the forum site threw up the error message, I was able to get in with no problem via the link from the main site.

Re: Irini Masterchef Winner

Accepted of course: there are far more important things to get tetchy about and yes, it's always good to see Greeks demonstrably knowing their stuff (see also Varoufakis eloquently scathing on Question Time about the B-word debacle). I've always been put off Masterchef by the gruesome twosome in cha...

Re: Irini Masterchef Winner

I was looking forward to watching this tonight. Not quite such a beguiling prospect now, though, since thanks to the above spoiler I already know the winner. Mixos could you not just have omitted the winner's name from your post title, for the benefit of those of us who have to watch on catchup as a...

Re: Local travel

Yes, the road is open and traffic flowing normally, though there are a couple of places where it's advisable to go a bit slowly. The KTEL website https://www.e-ktel.com/en/ is not very good at giving information proactively, but in my experience an email to the given address usually gets a speedy re...

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

I think the problem is that addicted smokers, however nice, educated, and informed about passive smoking can be completely oblivious to it when they are in the process of giving offence. I’ve recently been laid low by a particularly nasty bug, and my dear friend G, (who doesn’t read this forum) has ...

Re: Losing the View

Many years ago, staying for the first time in Athens, we arrived with laden rucksacks after midnight at our pre-booked city centre hotel, to find they had no record of our booking and no rooms. Some passing Kiwis mentioned that another hotel off Aeolou had rooms, and we slogged our way there in the ...

Re: Aegean bumping to Standby!

What a totally low life stupid statement/"question"! Mouche, I imagine that Kilkis has had the sense and dignity to ignore that unpleasantly provocative remark, which you've now made twice, presumably aiming to goad. I'm sure Warwick realised long since that the interminable, tedious verb...

The Storm and the Gorge

While sunbathing in Liverpool last week (as you do, occasionally, but not usually in February) I was getting alarming messages about the storm damage in Crete. Particularly scary was the video showing the collapse of the road through the Kourtaliotiko Gorge – the main access route to Plakias and its...

Re: Athens Airport --the long walk

That must have been you limping alongside me next to the out-of-action travelator, Mixos. I was the eejit who had decided to pack eight kilos of olives, honey, cheese etc into a non-wheeled holdall. And to think we used to complain about the Crete flights leaving from the remotest gate....

Re: That Flight

I'm really glad we got somewhere with it, Andrew, but feeling ever so slightly sorry for myself. I'm flying to the UK on Friday and for various reasons, mainly not wanting a five hour stopover in Athens, I am doing what I swore I would never do again after December's experience, and booked to go Rya...
