Re: Netflix UK

Since 1 April new EU rules mean that Netflix should allow you to watch UK content while you are in Crete BUT it will probably be time limited. It is really intended to allow citizens to watch content from their own country while they are on holiday in another EU country not to provide a permanent se...

Re: Damaged telephone socket after electric storm

I'm afraid my experience is more negative. Personally I have never had a problem so I only have indirect experience but three friends in my general area have found them anything but helpful. Typically they came to the outside junction, tested the line and said, "The problem is in the house"...

Re: Damaged telephone socket after electric storm

From the name I would guess he/she is between Vamos and Kefalas on Apokoronas just east of Chania, Mixos. In my experience there is a connection between OTE's lines and the house wiring somewhere outside the house. OTE are only responsible up to that connection. Inside the house is your responsibili...

Re: Apothiki construction: tax??

A generic term for sheet metal? Comes in many forms. Try putting Λαμαρίνα into google.gr This is a Wikipedia article on it. e-metalshop sell it in Greece. I've mostly seen it used for roofing. There are plenty of places around Chania that sell it, e.g. Sidal on Kissamou on the right hand side going ...

Re: Residence permits

The EU Parliament seem to have got quite exercised about it. Thoughts along the lines of: "If they treat people who have lived in the UK for 50 years and have been granted UK citizenship in this appalling manner how can we trust them to honour whatever agreement they make regarding EU citizens?...

Re: LIC Clock is slow!!

The clock is not fixed. People can choose how they want the time displayed. For example somebody in the UK might want it to display UK time while somebody on Crete might want it to display Greek time. To change your settings: 1 Click on the down arrow next to your user name at top right. 2 Click on ...

Re: Residence permits

For all those who think: "Why bother to get a Residence Certificate, I don't need it for anything" there is possibly a cautionary tale in the current main news story in the UK. Starting in 1948 and running through the 50s and into the 60s a large number of immigrants arrived in the UK from...

Re: Ikea Heraklion

Perhaps they've extended their range over the intervening period. The shop in Thessaloniki had only been open a relatively short time when I last visited and it was the first IKEA store to open in Greece in 2001. Possibly opening further stores, especially in Athens has given them greater scope to c...

Re: Visitors!

I had a feeling in my bones when I booked my flights that there was a good reason to be out of the country in early May.

I don't know if things have changed since I last used IKEA, in Thessaloniki about 15 years ago, but then they only had about half the items that are stocked in the UK?

Re: Ryanair

I haven't travelled back to the UK at Christmas for many years now, too bl**dy cold. When I did I found it quite important to book early, like now. Leave it until nearer the time and the price goes up quite steeply.

Re: Ikea Heraklion

As far as I can see, and I could be completely wrong since I don't use IKEA, I think you have to place the order in that pick-up point in order to get it delivered to that pick up point. Unlike e-shop, I cant see a way to order it online and specify a particular IKEA pick-up point for collection. Pe...
