It looks like the reason you haven't had a reply since January is because 'xronia polla' may not be correct in spelling. This sounds close but until I can find out more, this is the greeting for namedays... khroneea pola, means best wishes. The underline indicates an accent.

My partner lynne and I are visiting Crete again for the 3rd time. We like to see what the world has to offer but Crete and Greece in general never disappoints us.
In 2007 we toured the white mountains on a Africa Twin from Georges Motos, whilst based in Hersonissos and we didn't get that far west, so this time we are staying in Platanes whilst on leave from our jobs in education and the city council.
So if anyone has any tips for tracking down moto-bike hire in this region or any other information for this stunning island we will catch up with in the forum pages.
