Re: IKA Renewal

I would find it very hard to spend 100 euros in the Lidl we have in Sitia.. I can never find anything I want to buy or eat it all looks a bit grim and not very appetising. I go there sometimes and walk around with an empty trolly ,pick up a pack of cheap drill bits and a bunch of bananas ..and then...

Re: IKA Renewal

...Our Lidl bill is usually a bit over €100 but have never been asked to produce identity proof... No, you are correct Bob, it doesn't seem to happen anymore. Either it has been scrapped altogether or the limit at which they ask for proof of identity has been raised to an amount bigger than I can s...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

As it looks like I won't have to return to the UK thanks to the WA, I'm just contemplating getting a Greek driving licence. If I do it now, will I have to renew in a few months time when I'm 65? If so, I might as well leave it. Any ideas?? Yes I got my Greek licence in the summer of 2018 'cos we we...

Re: Satellite Internet

We've been with Bentley Walker for about 7 years. We were lucky enough to get an unlimited package. It's expensive but as we watch quite a lot of TV especially in the winter then the UK up address is invaluable. The download speed is always around 17-20 Mbs so apart from streaming live TV we can al...
