Re: Parking at Chania Bus Station

On the road parking is readily available in my road. People coming from some distance into Chania might like to park outside my house and let me drive them into town, picking up for the return trip when cell-phoned. I used to do this for friends in Tavronotis. Please PM and I'll give you my cell pho...

Re: Parking at Chania Bus Station

Actually, I live not a million miles from Lidl and DEH. For shopping in town, the sensible thing would be to catch a local bus on the hospital route but sense loses out to convenience. My query was not because I want to catch a bus but because parking at the bus station would be very convenient for ...

Re: A Place in the Sun (winter sun)

I remember laughing when the air hostess announced that we were coming in to land at Charnia - I thought about C.S.Lewis! My brother always pronounced it Charnia despite being corrected. The only Christmas cards that got through this year were addressed to Charnia. I used to have a bath not a barth ...

Caught out again!

Off to the shops this morning. Got a clue with the minimal traffic on the main road. Drove into the garage - closed. So was Lidl and Carrefore.
Yet another holiday when everything is closed!

Any suggestions how I can ensure I don't get caught our again?

Re: Indian Herbs and Spices

Years ago when I still lived in UK, I hosted an Indian bishop. We talked about food and he said his wife used a special blend for curry. The next time he came he brought me what his wife used. It was in a packet and readily available in UK supermarkets! Big dissapointment. I like curry flavour but n...

Re: Greek numbering and on-line banking

Another problem is when you want to enter a whole number of Euros. Is it 99,00 or just 99? It seems to vary with the application. Sometimes, 99 gets changed to 99,00 automatically.

Re: BBC programmes here

When I started this saga all those years ago, I said there were programmes I loved. I wonder what they were? Now I use Filmon and regularly cannot find anything I want to watch. Eggheads a couple of times a week when I'm in. The Queen's speech of course. Take away progs on house-selling, unreal &quo...

Re: Newbie

Hi. I know how you feel. I often go to taverna's and events on my own but here in Crete there is a big difference to England: the locals are extremely friendly. Always say hello in Greek to the waiters or bar staff. If there is a family group, just say hello and you may well be asked to join them - ...

Illuminated road signs in Chania

I have seen two new illuminated signs in Chania. My Greek is not good enough to read them in the few moments they are visible to a driver so can anyone help please? The first is a big sign that is at the traffic lights on Souda Road at the turning that leads to the agricultural college (and AB super...
