Ha ha - regarding the now infamous "serial typo"- perhaps the surprise is it only took 15 minutes to convince the bemused Officer concerned, his expression as he shook his head and advised you "drive safe" must have been something to see.
Regarding original poster Cundalini ... you surfaced ... then disappeared again ! As it is, your three current Postings meander on with detailed insights coming from various well informed sources, the only one absent from these proceedings seeming to be yourself. First thoughts are that you may have "cracked on" with the expedition before advice regarding the Gythio-Kissamos Ferry came to light, and are marooned aboard her without internet access, although researches indicate she is named after Vikentios Kornaros, the famed Cretan poet who wrote the romantic epic poem "Erotokritos", so there might well be finer things to muse upon during the lengthy passage, than may even be offered by the delights of a Piano Bar or the perplexing "on board camping" offered elsewhere. Regarding those who have shared their experience and wisdom with you, you might possibly have been somewhat more lavish in offering them thanks, but surely we all look forward to a "blow by blow" account of your eventual progress, and to warmly welcoming you - maybe by the end of the year ..... but which year shall it be ? "Drive safe" as we say here in Crete, and a Happy Christmas to everyone !
