Re: Mattress disposal Crete .

No she said she tried the charities and they would not take them ! She has 14 ! Ring the local dimos (council). They should be able to arrange collection of that lot but it may take a while! A friend who works for Chania dimos says that generally, a mattress (1 not 14!) left out by the bins will be...

Re: Crete driving is appalling !

Sorry for the slight digression but I remember a conversation with my Greek teacher a few years ago where I asked if this meant τρω σκατα and she said no, it's a gesture used when a mistake is made, and many people even do it to themselves upon making an error. Is it so, or was she talking the afor...

Re: public transport and taxis

Re: New Residence Permits

This is for NON EU Nationals only - the term ‘third country’ is used in the Treaties, where it means a country that is not a member of the European Union.

So, this looks like it will be our new type of Residents Permit after Brexit!
