Places to visit

I have a relative visiting in a few weeks who is very interested in the Invasion, and Crete's war history in general. I know that most of the important things happened in the West, and that Souda Bay is well known for the history. We have promised that we will bring him West (from Elounda, where the...

Re: Hello, and a quick question about living costs

Hi, I would say you could live nicely on about £4000 less than that. We do. :D

Re: Processionary Caterpillars

That was a really informative post Warwick , Thank You. I had read the article that you shared Jeff, and Wikipedia, that's why I give the area a wide berth. But none of them seemed to say how long before it was safe to go back after they had buried themselves ready for their next stage.

Re: Processionary Caterpillars

Thanks Warwick, that's really interesting, didn't occur to me that the nests would drop at different times, so really the answer is "How long is a piece of string?" . Last year they appeared earlier ,(end of Feb, but it was exceptionally warm), we avoided the area till May, so suspect will...

Processionary Caterpillars

I have had to alter my dog walk to avoid these blighters. I know after a certain time they bury themselves ready to emerge in the summer, but, despite scouring the internet, ( and asking the natural History Museum who haven't replied. ) I can't find out how long it takes for them to get to this stag...

Re: Crete driving is appalling !

When I first started driving here, I was terrified. I used to come home and say "You'll never believe what I just saw!" after 18 months I am still nervous, but now just shake my head at the appalling things I see. Warwick's explanation of the Greek Driver's psyche is spot on . So is his ad...

Re: DVLA has not sent my V5 log book before trip

We did Bari to Patras with Minoan Lines. Again, nothing was asked for. Of course, we might have just been lucky.

Re: Internet in smaller villages

We live in a rental property in a village a few minutes away from Neapoli. The house had had a landline before and it was quite straightforward to get both landline and reasonable Broadband (took about 2 weeks) . As others have said, I think the key is for the house to have had a landline already. .
