Re: Tourism drops in Greece after 5 record years

Totally agreed. "More" can reach the point where it is simply greed. Let's hope that the limited space (land surface/sea frontage etc) available in Sfakia will keep things more or less as they are today. Let's hope ..... let's hope, but greed can be a very powerful force.

Re: An end to reduced tax on tsikoudia (raki) and tsipouro

And so in Brussels big brother is looking over us and telling us what we have to do. Could this type of thing be one of the reasons that motivated BREXIT ??

Re: Imbros gorge taxi

Oh! calm, calm my children.
I suggest you all get a push bike to get from point A to point B and leave the taxis alone (and the honesty or dishonesty of the drivers also).
End of problem .... no? : and good for your health also.
Lets keep the forum bright, friendly and brotherly.

Re: Neptune in the old harbour.

Again in the old harbour early this morning. She looked great with the sun shining on her. Maybe she is being moored in the old harbour overnight.

Neptune in the old harbour.

Thanks to the harbour webcam this morning (Monday 27 May) we got a good view of Neptune with her refreshing new look. Nice to see the old lady back in service after her recent mishap. I've got lots of fond memories of travelling on this boat. She has worked very hard and helped lots of people with t...

Re: Livaniana update

A brave lady. I hope there is some way that she can re-open the tavern when and if security can be assured. If this is not possible, I hope she has a happy and healthy ongoing life. What a shame if the tavern is abandoned. What a pleasure it was to stop by there and have a drink and a good chat with...

Re: Less visitors at Chania airport in 2018

I have used Ryanair many times over the years but unfortunately, their behavior in 2018 has forced me to put them at the bottom of the list when choosing an airline company. Only out of pure necessity will I use them again. It appears that customers for them are just part of their profit making mach...
