I'm flying with them from Athens to Crete in January, having done the first leg, from Heathrow, with British Airways. I would quite like to take full advan...

Re: bank account after brexit

I think it will get more difficult once they start culling staff and will have to then wait a very long time to sit down with someone.

Re: Sticky topping on yoghurt

The shop in Rethymno town is called Magic Corner http://rethymnoguide.com/magiccorner/index.htm. The deal there is that they sell items for you, in return for part of the proceeds.
