I found it very interesting and well produced. The website, on which I spent a reasonable time, is well laid out with lots of useful information, relatively easy to navigate. Some of the translation is a little clumsy but, other than that very good.

Apricots anyone?

There are SO many highlights living each year here in Crete... but really, the joy of picking and eating the wonderful fruit from an apricot tree is right up there with the best. Back in the UK, fresh apricots in the supermarket are large... and... tasteless. Here they are smaller and very, very tas...

I have used FaceTime here (from Mac to Mac) and it was very easy to set up. The picture/video seems clearer and more stable than Skype. The person you call must have FaceTime on their Mac, iPad, iPhone or PC and then you just click on their email address... simples.

I too had problems with dropped digits when printing. It turned out to be a software issue. My ASUS laptop has Nuance pdf re...

I agree with Brian S, running away from these guys doesn't help, they are the ones who need isolating and you won't do that my running away. We were told that three men supporting Golden Dawn were refused coffee's in one of the bars on the water front at Hania, this is the way to beat them I don't ...

A few weeks ago my wife and I were enjoying a well deserved beer at the new bar/cantina on the Glaros beach (the long beach to the west of Kalyves). We were disturbed to notice that a couple of Greek men who habitually hang around there, occasionally act as waiters and appear to be friends of the o...
