Re: VPNs for BBC iPlayer

I have used SoftEther for many years without any problem, BBC, ITV, Chanel 4 and 5. Cost is £50.00 per year. I also use it to mask my location, but have to turn it off when we watch Netflix as it expects me not to be in the UK.

It is available from Unblockmytelly which used to be S4U.

Re: CAR INSURANCE

Yes I know about the Sport. Very popular in Derbyshire where I hailed from. I have never played it, but on a visit to UK last year watched my friend play. The average age of both teams was 65. The youngest player was 60 the eldest was 72. Hence from my experience an Old Mans game. Just for the recor...

Re: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

Excellent response, johnincrete. There is plenty that we can do. There are a number of Manufactures in Crete, we must support them. Sending Cretan gifts to families as a birthday or Christmas present. An excellent one comes to mind , Bioaroma, they make and sell from their premises in Agios Nikolaos...

CAR INSURANCE

I have a new car. Does anyone have experience with this company? Any Pluses or Negatives. I would be gr...

WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

Convid-19 has devastated the Greek economy, but in particular Crete. There have been 3 or 4 bad years regarding Olive farming (particularly in my area). Last year was a good year for Tourism, but this year is nothing less than a disaster. The Greek economy is not strong enough to support Employees a...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Guy M We flew Chania to Bristol today. Some big Covid-19 differences compared with flying the other way. No check at Chania that Passenger Location form had been completed - couldn’t board at Bristol without showing a PLF with the Unique code on it. As a result, people were filling in online forms ...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Can we close this thread please. It is boring and not about Living in Crete.
I care about what happens here (very Safe in our area) not what happens in Britain.

Re: Flying Crete - UK

chrissyg, I have to agree with the comments made against you for your ridiculous comments. Try engaging your brain before you make such dangerous comments. We cant all stay at home is what im saying, and the ones that dont and therefore take more risks, shouldnt be made to feel guilty about it. Kill...

Re: Cap on university places for medical students

What has this article and the replies got to do with expats living in Greece?. I would guess that 99% do not have teenagers living with them that are likly to attend a UK University.

Or is it because there is nothing else interesting to discuss about Living in Crete/Greece.

Re: WD-40

WD 40 is an excellent cleaner, bugs of the car paintwork. Dirty muddy trainers. Will also waterproof them. Many more wonderful things that it will do. But do not forget it will help with the stubborn nut/bolt, screw and rusty locks.

Kavousi is slap bang on the National Road, and enjoys a superb bus service with 4 buses a day running from Sitia to Ierapetra and 6* from Sitia to Agios Nikalaos and on to Heraklion. I felt it important to be closer t...
