There's a railway on Crete? (Is this a wind-up? I've never seen a train on Crete!)

BRING BACK SOMETHING FROM THE UK

I wondered if it would be worth having a separate section for use when people need something to be hand-carried from the UK? For my part, I'll be coming to Vamos on October 7th so if anyone needs something (preferably small and light*) that will fit in a suitcase, I'd be happy to oblige. Just tell m...

My wife went to see it with a female friend. "You won't like it; it's a girl thing!" When she came home she said "It was brilliant and I was right: you definitely wouldn't like it!" I do as I'm told so I haven't seen anything apart from trailers. I don't think I could stand an ho...

I feel like I am in Crete today, the weather here is very hot and muggy and all that I can manage to do today (after a long day in the cricket field yesterday), is sit around doing nothing Likewise, I'm watching my neighbour replace my fence, concrete posts and all. It's very tiring. The sweat is p...
