Extortionate fees for registering foreign cars

Greece is not the UK with more sunshine. The law is often flouted and rules imposed arbitrary and draconian manner. If only people would do their research it would save much grief. In the case of cars come in the oldest one that will make the trip and then get rid of it. It is no good complaining th...

Ouch

The reason why Malia etc, has the reputation they have is and always has been obvious. I do not have to reflect on the reasons; however, if the Cretan citizens of the island do not like it then they can do something about it, as with most things in life it is a matter of will. As to the British tour...

Ouch!

I am rather surprised at the levity that has arisen concerning the incident. I am also not surprised that various versions of the incident have surfaced. Seekers after truth invariably discover that it has a defect in vision. Ask witnesses to a crime what they saw and eyesight, position, imagination...

Olive Production 2009

Surrounded by olive groves as we are and passing by others on a regular basis the lack of activity and watering this year is very obvious. We have begun to wonder if this is a local phenomenon or is it more widespread that olive production is taking a back seat? It has occurred to us that some conce...

Sticky Year for Tourism in Crete

Something new to my experience of Crete and possibly another glimpse of the impact of reduced visitor figures occurred recently. My wife and I went into a taverna in an erstwhile busy, attractive tourist spot. We sat and ordered. A chap next came rushing out, jumped on a moped and took off. He retur...

SEAT Main Dealer-Rethymno

Help, please. We have been given less than useful directions to the SEAT main dealer in Rethymno. We gather that it is somewhere in the eastern side of the town. Could anyone be more precise, please?

Thank you, Paul. I obviously did not have a primary source and received the usual gobbledygook.

2009 Difficult Year For Greek Tourism

To Clio,
The 'we' in this case is my wife and myself. I am delighted to say that I have retired from practice in the UK.

2009 Difficult Year For Greek Tourism

One thing is pretty well clear from the various posts and that is it is going to be difficult for the tourism sector in many cases, but also the wider economy. There are tavernas that operate on the strange economic principle of fewer customers…put the prices up. This has been standard practice here...

2009 Difficult Year For Greek Tourism

Wandering across Crete as we do this topic has retained our interest; particularly as we have a number of Cretan friends who are directly involved in the tourist business. Clearly the revenue earned from tourism is down; at least this is true in some places. Footfall, the number of visitors is not o...

Mobile Phone Registration

Asking around nobody seems, as usual, to have any clear idea where Greek mobile phones have to be registered by 30th June 2009. Do any of the readers of this site know the procedure? Factual information would be greatly appreciated.

Left Luggage in Piraeus

If you want an excellent meal (as used by local people) leave the Ferry Port by the far western gate near the Minoan and ANEK berths and cross the road diagonally left on to the pavement of the street that runs up opposite the entry gate. Walk up a few metres and then turn left up the steps and over...

Rodent Control

Being opposed to poison I am looking for a first-class air rifle to use as a rodent control; being a good shot. Please could anyone either recommend or point me at a web site that will offer these either to buy or import in Crete.
Many thanks
