Re: container home

My partner would suggest I live in a container, the local bar/taverna, I often find myself contained inside far longer than is necessary, but then I guess it’s a necessary requirement for my personal ongoing research :D

Re: Satellite Internet

Ok, thanks midlander, I had a look and the unlimited night time data is also good as it starts at 23:00 instead of 01:00 with the others, even in Crete it can be hard to stay up that late, especially on taverna night where the alcohol flows faster than the rivers in winter time...and at my age, dis...

Satellite Internet

Am I correct in saying that there are currently three satellite internet choices, bigblu, cosmote and nova? I don’t hear much about nova, are they any good?

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

It’s not just the locals, visit any taverna frequented by tourists and all nationalities including Brits, are chain smoking, probably makes them feel free as they do not do it their own country, or not allowed.

So with heavy bag in hand...
