Explore Crete Dinner In May?
Posted 21 April 2008 - 02:43 PM
Amazing how time flies... it is now again time to think about the annual fabulous Explore Crete Dinner!
If anybody would like to participate please suggest which date(S) would be most convenient in May - or maybe it will be June this year? I know Ton&Family will be down here in the South in May, but otherwise I have lost track of who-will-be-where-and-when.
Let's get our act together!
Looking forward to see familiar and new faces among the CreteExplorers!

I would love to meet up with you & some of the other members, I will be in Crete 5th to 18th May, but I think this will probably be too early for the Explore Crete Dinner. I did meet Yiannis when I was here in March at his office (I bought him some Assam Tea). I passed through Pitsidia several times last July & once in March on route to Matala & Agia Galini & thought of you & your animals.

Well, it seems that we will not be that many for a "real" ExploreCrete Dinner, maybe we should postpone it till June?
Ros, if you are down here near Pitsidia please come by and say hello! You cannot miss me, I am in the first house before next to the road on the left before you reach Pitsidia - the white square house with the BLUE shutters (I have just painted them, such a nice change from the former pinkish colour!). Just honk the horn or pick up the hammer at the gate and beat the cowbell - in that way, if I am working in my office I will be sure to hear that you have arrived! That goes for anyone else, of course, (aardigman, are you camping down South?) if you are coming down South. I would love to meet you!
So, what about JUNE? Pam & Bob will be here 2-16th. Anyone else?

Bizarrely I had a phone call tonight about a job in crete starting June 20th.
I might be there after all.

I would loved to have visited you & I drove through Pitsidia to Komos & Matala. Unfortunately I didn't have computer access in Crete, & I arrived several days before you posted your kind invitation.
I will be back over for around 5 weeks in September, so if your invitation still stands I will see you then!

It would be nice to meet up with other Explore Crete members. Pat & Pete.

Would Friday 5th be OK? EDITED: Ooops, just noticed that Pat & Pete will NOT be here for the first 4 days (if I understood right) - so WHEN would be a good day for the two of you? Hopefully Pam & Bob can adapt if they are not planning to go too far away...
And would Lions in Matala be a good choice? It is not the cheapest of restaurants but the food is really good and with lots of choices, reastaurant directly on the seaside.
Cheaper choice, but still with very nice food, would be Eleni a few meters away with the same fantastic view...
Let me know, OK?

Yes, we can be flexible, though we have got accommodation booked in Kalyves from 11th June, but if there's a few meeting up will do our best to be there.

As much as I would love to attend I cannot get leave so will have to take a raincheck. Perhaps I will be able to catch up with you in July when I come over.

Well, maybe we will just settle for a cozy taverna?

Why not just give me a call when you are heading South? My home number is
EDITED: Half the message disappeared when I inserted it. Maybe we are not allowed to put in telephone numbers here??????
I will try and fool the system: the first 5 numbers are 28920 and the last five numbers are 45231 I sure wiser than a computer system.... I hope!!! eheheh
OK, Pam & Bob will be here Monday 2nd around lunchtime and since they will probably stay just a week in this area you might just miss them. Lets see how it works out. Anyway, do not just pass my house without stopping to say hello!!
See you! :-)

You clever girl! You can also put your address on Google!
BTW, how about changing this thread to "Dinner in July" End of June the academy closes for holidays, and I think it's time we all meet in the flesh.
Sounds funny that last part

Good idea Wim, what about a second Explore Crete dinner last week of July- I would be happy to make arrangements for Kritsa or Agios Nikolaos but would be equally happy to travel if interested people are in other parts of the island.
I know of various accomodation available in Kritsa in rooms, small hotels or houses to rent and would be happy to give contact details.
