Re: Stranded parcels at Vamos

If there is a KTEL bus from Vamos into Chania bus station it is quite possible that they might be able to give the parcel to that driver and he will make sure it gets put on the bus to Heraklion. Yes I’d forgotten you can do that, and I’m sure a transfer to a second bus can indeed be accommodated. ...

Re: Stranded parcels at Vamos

Many years ago, not long after we had settled in Crete, my husband had kidney problems and underwent an exploratory operation at Rethymno hospital. The consultant told me that he had found nothing untoward, but to be on the safe side he had taken tissue for a biopsy. Unbeknown to me the hospital had...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Just for reference, I was a journalist working for British national newspapers before Jonathan Cook was born, and I am perfectly capable of assessing the accuracy of the story to which I linked. For further reference, I am deeply alarmed at the direction in which this present British government is h...

Re: Registration Certificate and Arthritis.

Re the rheumatoid arthritis question, my late husband had excellent care over a number of years at the University Hospital's Rheumatology clinic. He would have recommended the clinic and the doctors unequivocally. I should perhaps explain the rather odd system as regards payment. A consultant and hi...

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

Considering the USA is total insanity!


Insanity being the operative word. This is the response of some Americans to the idea of having to wear face masks:

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

t’s a fair bet I am the only one on here who has worked with Stanley Johnson. Hope you washed your hands! Seriously Guy I admire very much the morality behind your and Maud's thinking – the concern that you might unwittingly take the virus into Greece, and sadly I think that is quite rare. Most tou...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

The good news: The European commission has launched an app and website that provide travellers with real-time information about coronavirus rules and the status of infections in each European country. The bad news: The Uk isn't involved. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jun/16/dismay-uk-fai...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

It seems fashionable at the moment to knock various governments for their handling of the pandemic, but these will be decisions that I'm glad I don't have to make. There is only one government on whose handling of the crisis I feel qualified to speak, and since, when I lived in Crete, I castigated ...
