Re: Tourism drops in Greece after 5 record years

Airbnb is causing problems all over Greece....and other parts of Europe. I have a friend in Rethymno, and also one in Athens, whose landlords have evicted them from their apartments, as they can get more money renting them through Airbnb. I feel sorry for the hotel owners in Sfakia, and the poor peo...

Re: Tourism drops in Greece after 5 record years

The incessant drive for growth is at the route of the worlds problems. Why do we always want more? When you have enough, more is just greed. So true....but ‘enough’ is never enough for many people. There is a difference between enough to sustain a small family, or a growing one. - Erno has a point ...

Re: Calypso ferry boat spotted in Agia Galini today

It sails past us daily now, and is lovely to see. - We are between Chora Sfakion and Plakias.

This morning we are off to Sfakia for a couple of hours. I need some of those almond biscuits from the bakery!

Re: Harbour Webcam

Re: Will Visa be needed if 'No Deal' Brexit??

Another thought.....
Don’t forget All U.K. citizens will probably need IDP’s if we want to drive on Crete. We are getting ours this week, as we are setting off for Greece before Brexit, and cannot take a chance that anything will be agreed between the EU and the U.K. before we go.

Re: Will Visa be needed if 'No Deal' Brexit??

Thanx Erno for the info about my question it looks like I won't need a visa for my Andros & Tinos visit & my other walking hol in Sfakia in September. I certainly did not vote for Brexit & nearly all my friends did not either, in fact I know very few people who did. The county I live in...

Re: Will Visa be needed if 'No Deal' Brexit??

Not everyone in the U.K. voted for Brexit bearbommi. - We certainly didn’t.....along with another 48% of the people who voted in the referendum . I am fed up hearing Teresa May saying the British Public voted for Brexit. Please don’t think her comments are representative of all U.K. voters!

Mihalis, do let us know what happens with your uncle. It must be a very worrying time for your family. I hope he is found safely.
