UK Internet Service Provider.

Hi to you all. I have been told it is possible to get a UK Internet Service Provider Address by using a UK Proxy Server. I would like to watch UK television programmes on line and therefore need a UK address. Does anybody have any experience of using one of these providers here in Crete? My friend w...

Keep OFF the ouzo and stick to the house wine. Try ordering an extra starter and take off a main meal. Try eating more vegetables and less meat as this suits both the pocket and the health issues. In Kalyves there are some expensive tavernas. Mythos has always offered good value for money. Some char...

How to dispose of a freezer.

Hi, We have a freezer that has now died and we want to dispose of it in the safe and correct way. It just fits in the back of the car so it can be transported to a recycling establishment if they exist. We live in The Apokoronas area and wonder how others have solved this problem? Last time we bough...

Hotel Recommendation Required Please.

Hi, You may not be aware but Easyjet flights from Gatwic to Athens in the winter are now not arriving until 19.30. This is a problem for flight connections to Xania as both Aegean and Olympic's last flights depart at about the same time. Gone is the 22.00 flight that was available last winter. Can a...

Hi,

Hope it is true as the jungle telephone has informed me that the work has been completed. Finger crossed that this is correct as Thursdays are much better with electricity.

Thanks for all the info.

Hi Big Vern,

Thank you for your reply and I think you have the answer as last winter they were doing the same sort of work in Drapanos. If in your travels you see the notices in Kefalas then please post a message as it does help to know what is going on.
Many thanks.
