Re: Whit Monday

Thanks, Warwick. I had a feeling that was the case.

Re: Which internet provider to go for?

Mine's 10 Euros a month more than tsambi was hoping to pay, however! Mind you, it's fast broadband and very reliable.

Re: The system isn’t working

Warwick, thanks for the tip on VAT/AFM. I tried again, saying yes to VAT and following with 'Expatriate ID Card' and it seemed to work okay (had to fill in address details in Greek characters as other posters have suggested). Just a matter of waiting again now, I guess. I won't hold my breath.

Re: The system isn’t working

It seems the emvolio.gov.gr website is no longer accepting applications for temporary AMKA numbers. I tried to re-register today as I'd heard nothing from them despite registering many weeks ago. If you try to register now you simply get a message telling you to go to KEP. For the issuance of a Prov...

Hi just curious for the coffee drinkers among you. We use a cafetiere daily. We have used Jacobs Eklektos for ages. Do any of you have a brand which you would recommend? Tia. I bought a coffee machine around the same time as @kookla originally posted this request, and I've since been trying differe...

Re: Welcome to Greece - Enjoy your Hotel

Who knows? The rules and regulations in both countries long ago outstripped the capacity of my small εγκέφαλος to keep up. I find the fruits of my neighbour's small vineyard keeps me pleasantly detached. Like right now.

Re: Welcome to Greece - Enjoy your Hotel

And that works both ways. I have Greek friends who are travelling to the UK next week to see their two sons for the first time in a year. The flights cost them 38 euros each. They have spent 600 euros on the various tests and paperwork required to travel. (not to mention that they will have to spend...

Re: Lockdown Lifted

I thought that was the late great EM. The ladies look Greek, though. Maybe it's not just the brits who get p*****d up on holiday and go bonkers.

Re: AIR COOLING FANS

Hi Mike I did a lot of research on non-AC cooling devices before coming out here permanently. I nearly bought a Dyson AM7 tower fan, but after reading a lot of technical stuff and, crucially, a lot of customer reviews, I decided that without a compressor i.e. AC, none of the products available were ...
