Got back on the 24sep should have been 23rd but that is another story, stayed in Koutouloufari, last time there 2000, it hasnt change much afew more tavernas and a few bars that have been upgraded, on the road to Piskopiano alot more tavernas and apartments which dont look out of place they blend in. Piskopiano on the other hand,first time there was in 1991, what are they doing to the village,they have knocked down old greek houses and put up Irish bars and sports bars blasting out all kinds of music not my taste if i want an Irish or English bar i will stay in that country.In the back streets you can still see old pisko, but a lot of the houses where the old ladies who were dressed in black sat outside are being left to fall down, nobody must have wanted to take them on after the deaths of the ladies, i bet i can guess what will happen, met old friends in the Elgony app Nickos and family they made us most welcome stayed with them for a few hours.From pisko to Old Hersonissos not much changed only a large supermarket a bit cheaper than the others,Old Hersonissos not changed at all still the same as 1991, spent a few hours in the square in the taverna next to the paper kiosk, cheap drink and the owner kept giving us little bits to eat a very nice place. Now the thing they all have in common is traffic at times in Koutouloufari we drunk in the Mythos bar in the centre at the top of the hill and at times it was grid locked, cars, taxis, quad bikes, scooters anythink that had wheels went on the road to the three villages at times you took your life in your hands, what gets me is there is nowhere to park or very little, so they are not stopping and spending.Those roads where only made for two donkeys to pass, can not wait for Wims comment Rod. will try and upload photos in gallery been trying all afternoon put some on here
The advance party sent off for Crete today my son and his partner 2 Sept at 2pm, they should be landing at Heraklion airport about 8pm Greek time, should arrive at koutalafari about 9-30pm. then next week its my turn been a long wait but now its almost here cant wait for that first drink of Mythos at the pool bar, then after a few days i will be sick of it, im a beer drinker not larger.
Just had an email from another travel site, about Dedalus app in Koutouloufari, it says a lot of Dutch use the app and on Dutch travel sites they dont give the app a good write up will have to see. Not bothered about the Dutch people i can get on with anybody i wonder if they will have heard about Wim.
Hi Chris and Claire Ive spent the afternoon in Bali and only had a few beers it is a very nice place small but relaxing, if you look in reviews somebody as wrote about places to eat. If i remember there is a hotel bus that runs from Bali a long the coast to Rethymnon so you can get off at different places a long the route.
Booked on the net in March for October the flights were bad so paid extra for a good flight time, yesterday got a letter from the airline to tell us the flight as been canceled so they have put us back on the bad flight time with no refund.Rung the airline today didn't want to no about it they said call your agent but in the letter it said any problems ring us. So we rang the agent we are now on the 0500hrs flight with no refund, the flight was booked with Freedom Flights little did i no it was part of the XL group. Had a lot of hassel with XL over the years, but the flight is with Air malta, its a long time off so anything can happen.
Your right Dave, thats true a bout all dogs a quote from a lot of dog owners its never done that before, staffies have had a lot of bad press about attacting people, but its like you say its how they are trained and treated,the best of dogs can flip.Im only holidaying in sept,but i have a piece of land marked out in Piskopiano so perhaps one day

It had its ears spiked, didn't looked nice at all, it is illegal in GB, and so it should be.The staffy didnt looked to pleased aswell, im only asking because i have a staffy called cassie my second one. A good site for Staffy owners is Staffybullterrors.co.uk
