Re: Getting to the Glens

Thanks, that's a great tip. Civilised travel time, a night's proper sleep at the Millenium Hotel (if it's still standing and not buried under new platforms), then the early train north and I can be at my destination only a couple of hours later than with the all-nighter. And prices, now anyway, pret...

Re: Getting to the Glens

Thank you, that was really kind, especially as this 'ere trip looks like happening sooner rather than later. Nothing like a Greek website for getting useful info from Scotland!

Re: Getting to the Glens

Thanks for the thought, but it doesn't work. If I could fly direct to Inverness it would be lovely, but as things are it would mean an extra stage and lots more hours to the journey. It's looking like the station waiting room, if any!

Re: Getting to the Glens

Thanks. Yes, that's my Plan B, but I'd prefer not to fall back on it because of the awkward small-hours stopover. Too short a time to take a hotel room, too long for sitting in a station waiting room - assuming that the temporary facilities during the Queen St refurbishment include a 24-hour waiting...

Getting to the Glens

I’m likely to have to make a flying visit to the highlands of Scotland later this season, and I’m having trouble working out the logistics. I did the same trip in the winter and was prepared for the fact that, given the need to change in Athens for a start, that it would take me two days. But I had ...

Re: Transferring funds, and pink slips

It must. be at least ten years since our helpful accountant, at my husband's insistence, brought a successful test case with Rethymno Eforia, as a result of which they agreed to accept proof of ATM withdrawals as proof of income.. I think they must have asked for something a bit more substantial tha...

Re: Angiologist

Thanks, Warwick. Looks like one of the Chania docs has been doing one clinic per week in Rethymno, which if still the case would be very handy.

I have to consult a vein doctor, but it seems there isn't one in Rethymno. I see there are a couple in Chania, and would appreciate any personal recommendations.

Still on the Road Topic....

It won't mean a lot to you Apokoronites, but those of us in the south-central area are very excited to be able to use, at long last, the new(ish) fast Moires to Heraklio highway. It will cut the northbound journey time considerably and, we hope, improve the real estate prospects in the south because...

Re: The Men From The Ministry

You want water, Tim? You're welcome to the contents of my dehumidifiers, still extracting the stuff by the the gallon after all those wet weeks. Got leather sandals and belts, too, free to anyone who can be a**sed to remove the mould. Remember last year when we were praying for rain? Perhaps we shou...

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...
