Re: We have moved in!

I think Wind also offer a WiFi dongle that effectively gives Internet connectivity through the mobile network. Worth looking into. Indeed! For some reason I was under the impression that they'd gone out of business but obviously not so. Same would appply though: you need to test it where you are go...

Re: We have moved in!

I am trying to set up WiFi in my villa

Do you mean that you are trying to get an internet connection? If considering mobile then it's either Vodafone or Cosmote and how well either works is entirely dependent on where you are located. So you'll need to test both or ask your neighbours.

Re: cremation in Greece

Just read that too. 13 years after the law was passed. Looks like it could happen before we die.

Re: Omalos

I haven't been myself but I am pretty sure that it is. The road is damaged but not cut off.

Re: Omalos

Yes there is snow. You can drive as far as the first tavernas. As of yesterday the road had not been cleared further up. As you guess they need bulldozers in other areas at the moment.

Don't forget the F16 jets daily low flying sorties in pairs.

Re: Athens Airport --the long walk

Had this last month coming from Chania and going to catch an Easyjet flight. And the same on return. The walk is a good 10 minutes (and i am a fast walker so double that if you're slow) so must be about one kilometer.

I always assumed that was your photo second from left at the top of your home web page?

Actually, he is a Ioannis...but not me ;-) I'd probably look like him if I stopped shaving though

Re: Retirement in crete

I wonder how many forum members automatically think that you are female because of your name?

Well, didn't you know that I was a British female?

Can anyone personally recommend estate agents in Chania that would have a good selection of Chania town properties (flats)?

Re: Appalling weather

I've never complained about the weather after our first winter (2003) which made us wonder if we'd made a mistake in coming here. The winter 2002-2003 was a record winter in terms of rain (further back there was also 1986-87 and 1980-81) That might be beaten this year if the weather continues as it...
