Re: News from Loutro

KV & All. Of course we all have our preferred places to visit and stay in Sfakia. I have been to Loutro almost all years since 1986. This past summer (2021) I was talking with someone who is the 3rd generation (during my time) running one of the restaurants in Loutro. I have known him since he w...

News from Loutro

I haven’t been to Sfakia for 3 years. I missed the summer of 2019 as well as 2020. So, changes I’ve observed took place sometime over a three year period. There seems to be a consensus that Loutro is busy this year. Not all the rooms are full each night. But, boats – the Sweetwater and Marmara boats...

Re: Is this forum “dead”?

Of course the forum isn't dead - as the responses to the question indicate. Erno has continued to answer questions, and provide information. He's done a great job through a difficult 18 months, and counting. I'll be in Loutro in a couple of weeks. I'll let people know what the situation looks like t...

Re: Bad news about the beach webcam

I believe it would be possible to raise the amount of money needed to purchase a new camera, and pay other ancillary costs, to keep the beach webcam operating. If the folks in Sfakia are willing to install the camera, and basically keep it running, it is not unreasonable that those of us who enjoy s...

Re: Phoning another mobile on Crete.

Last year I could not get a SIM card in Athens airport. I had to wait until I got to Chania.

Re: Why Greek Orthodox and Catholic Easter will never coincide after 2700

Erno.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting this.

Along with other interesting information, it answers a question I have had: why do Greek Orthodox celebrate Christmas on 25 December, but celebrate Easter along with the other Orthodox churches?

Now I know. Thank you.

Re: Walking to Domata Beach

Svein. The walk itself is not particularly dangerous. There are some places where the path passes close to a cliff face and such. But those aren't really dangerous places. The path isn't that close to the cliff face, and it's a decent path at that point. The danger is that is the path is not frequen...
