Re: Please settle a wager .

Definitely just cut the base often you will see someone will take a piece out inch or so , assume it is to stop it grafting itself back . But that does kill it and if you leave long enough it will literally fall off with a pull but yes does leave residue of dried clinging roots .

Re: Kalamata to Kissamos Ferry

Hi
anyone heard any more rumour about if and when this service may start up again . Just considering all the options when we are thinking about driving over next year and was thinking may be a better drive from Patras there with a car and trailer rather than getting to Pireaus ?

Re: That's all right then

Well we are in a similar position Jason but what we did was obtain a residents permit to get a foot in the door , you need one anyway to buy a car . You just have to take the relevant stuff to the local police station we just used the EHIC card for insurance . I understand they can be sniffy at some...
