Just booked flights with BA (or at least it's franchised versions) for our 3rd visit for the year.

Fly out evening of Thu 27th Sep & returning to the UK late on Sun 7th Oct. 51 each way inc taxes, which I thought was very reasonable. B)

We are over for one week only (wish it was longer!) 27 May - 3 June staying in the Platanas (sp?) bit of Rethymnon.

Paul & I have never been to Crete but have been visiting Greece and her islands for over 10 years. My sister and her partner have been to Crete before and loved it, but Paul and I are nutty grecophiles so I just know we will love it!

Naturally we had to pay over the odds for basic budget accommodation during half-term week :o , as my sister only gets school hols, but I am sure it will be wonderful! Can't wait - am getting butterflies already!!! Better have an ouzo to settle my tum!

Hi Mike and Jane - looked for you both on Introduce Yourself to the Board, but couldn't find you.... We are in same area 16 May - 20th May. I have just been looking at our busy schedule and we are backwards and forwards to Chania sorting out bank accounts etc, then Gavalahori to my brother's place, then back to Kalives to sort new bank account and pick up bits for my brother.... as well as unpacking all the furniture..... How I wish I'd booked a couple of weeks now instead of just a few days.... never mind - back out in July.

Hi, Mike & Jan and Laid Back Lil - we're intending to stay in Kalyves for a few days 21st-25th May. Haven't booked anywhere yet - have you any recommendations. Also, if you fancy meeting up for a drink, just name a bar and a time!

Hi Pam & Bob - so busy and besides we leave as you arrive unfortunately! We're based in Kokkino Chorio but come into Kalives for food, wine and general shopping etc - if we had had a bit more time and not rushing about so much would have loved to have met you and Mike & Jane too. We come back out for 2 weeks on 17th July if anyone is around then? B) :D

Hi Pam & Bob, Laid back Lil etc., we have no schedule, but we are planning trip by bus/ferry/ferry/bus via Paleochora/Ag.Roumelli/Loutro/Chora Sphakion and back at sometime, and haven't figured this around car hire and visits to Chania Saturday market yet. So much for a relaxing break! We will be using the Internet cafe from time to time so will post any arrangements we managee to make.

Hi Lil, glad you like them!

I had to whittle it down to that many from over 1300!

I've still got some landscape pictures to stitch together and add - so in a week or so there will be some stunners!

HI Tinks,
Great pics! Loved them... last time in Santorini was 1996 and am anxious to go back. How was the weather? Is Toast Club still in the center of Fira? It was a fast food place that made an awesome gyro!
thanks for sharing!
