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

Would you suggest a ‘London Garden Bridge’ or a bridge like the one Boris now wants to build between the U.K. mainland and Ireland Warwick? We need a sense of humour on here! There is a difference between optimism and reality Yorgo. I think Boris Johnson, amongst others, needs to learn that. - His b...

Re: The young and healthy

6,000 experts world wide. - A drop in the ocean?

Just making the point that it is a very small percentage of experts when the whole world is struggling with this problem, and everyone is doing research in to it.

It is a divisive subject chrissyg. Only a small number of ‘experts’ think that way at the moment.

Glad you have managed to get the cabins sorted Tom.

All good things to look forward to now.

Re: Residency

I hope you also sorted out your Piraeus to Crete crossing with your dog before you sailed Tom? I have only just read your post above, so I am too late to remind you that you would need a pet cabin on that crossing as well. I know some people leave their pets in their vehicles, but as your dog is bli...

Re: Residency

I think the cabins are expensive, especially as the tannoy system keeps you awake anyway! We are fortunate that we can sleep in our vehicle with ANEK on the Italy/Greece leg of our journey. We quite enjoy that part of the trip, although I always find the overnight Piraeus to Kriti sailing tough. Hav...

Re: Residency

Thanks for the update. You have done really well get so much distance covered in a short time and with bad weather! How have you managed for accommodation? Have you just slept in the car? I assume you have a cabin for your Minoan part of the journey? Keep safe and relax on the ferry crossing. - You ...

Re: Residency

It is possible to do it Tom, but do be careful. We drive that journey (with a return) at least once a year. If you haven’t driven on an Italian motorway before be prepared for an new experience! We try to do as much as possible on a Sunday when the lorries are off the roads. (Especially the St Gotth...

Re: UK car to Crete Import cost?

Drive your Merc out. Your dog will be comfortable in a car it knows, and you will be doing the journey in a car that you can trust. You will then have six months to decide what to do. It will give you time to either search for a Greek registered car, and possibly sell the Merc in Greece. If all else...

Re: Σεισμός!

I lose track of time, but I think it was June 2015 when we were having lunch with friends in their apartment in Rethymno. We were all sitting on the balcony ( on the third floor), when we felt the building sway. We have endured numerous quakes in Greece over the years, but we have never been on the ...

Re: Tearing up the withdrawal agreement?

When visiting Scotland a few years ago I was chatting to a local fisherman. His catch consisted mainly of shell fish. - Everything was sent to Spain. He didn’t want Brexit. Neither did his mates who were also small time fishermen......earning a living from shellfish. Even within the fishing industry...

Re: Tearing up the withdrawal agreement?

Johnson has already lost one job for being untruthful. I don’t think any of this will come as a surprise to many. The problem for the EU is what to do next.....and how much can they trust anything Johnson and his Government agree to in the future. - Trust is very important in all walks of life! As f...
