#14394 03. How To Add A Photo To Your Message

Posted by Nat08 on 22 June 2008 - 11:37 PM in How to

Γεια σας Wim,

I did it :D , I used to have the Greek alphabet in my previous computer, but for some reason I didn't know how to do it properly in my new one. Now it's done and I'm glad, thanks.

Being arrogant can be an attractive thing, I guess sometimes I'm arrogant myself. Should pride be hidden? Well, I am a Spaniard living in England for a few years now and I can only say: pride should never be hidden. My grandfather, who died bravely during Franco's dictatorship, sent a letter to my grandma and he said: "Tell our children to always be proud of their background, their virtues and even their faults".

I also admire straightforwardness in people, it saves a lot of time, worries and misunderstandings.

Just one more thing, I'm a woman and my name is Natalia.

Φιλακια ^_^

I have realised, after reading only a few of your hundreds of posts, that you do actually hate the so called greeklish. Well, I'm afraid English is the lingua franca at this moment and it has a strong influence on many other languages, especially when it comes to terminology related to IT. Spanish, my native language, also suffers of this influence, particularly in Latinoamerica, but at the end of the day it is all about communication. I love the "purity" of languages as well, but sometimes this can be incomplete or too strict. One of the main reasons why I'm coming back to Greece, permanently, is the beauty of Greek language.

Your comments are normallly quite funny, but sometimes I think you are a bit arrogant too :)

Having said all this, elpizw na eiste kala... ooops, sorry, I meant I hope you are fine.

That's ok Wim, I was just trying to see how I could add a picture, but if you can explain to me how to use the greek alphabet I'd appreciate it.



#14357 Hi Crete:)

Posted by Nat08 on 12 June 2008 - 04:26 PM in Introduce Yourself


I am Natalia, I live in Bristol but I am from Málaga, beautiful place in the south of Spain. I am a translator of Greek, English, French and Spanish and I also teach Spanish as a foreign language. I have decided to leave England after a few years in order to start a new life in Greece. I don't really want to live in Athens or Thessaloniki, where I would have more job opportunities. I am looking for a beautiful place, with authentic people, not very big nor too small, and with generally good weather, good food, plenty of dancing and music (especially greek and belly dancing!) and slightly mad people, so the equation seems to be Crete! I lived in Greece before (I was 21 then, now I'm 27), but this island is basically new for me. I guess it will be difficult at the beginning, but hopefully I won't regret my decision. I will be there in 2 months, god I am so nervous about the whole thing :)

Hi Emma,

Thanks for your answer, it is really useful, I didn't know there are frontistiria in Hania, when I first did a search online, everything I could see was in Heraklion. Hopefully greeks (and mainly not only greeks) will be interested in learning Spanish:) I think I am going to have a great time anyway, I can't wait! Greetings from cloudy Bristol.

#14313 Moving To Crete In September

Posted by Nat08 on 09 June 2008 - 10:28 AM in Living in Crete


I am a Spaniard who has spent the last 4 years in the UK and is desperately missing the sun and the sea. I am a translator and teacher of modern languages. I speak Greek (used to live in Athens and Patras a few years ago), so I thought: why don't you just go back to beautiful Greece? I don't really want to live in Athens or Thessaloniki, and my instinct tells me Crete could be ideal for me. I have been in contact with a few languages schools based in Iraklion and they seem to be interested, we'll see. I have thousands of questions, but to start with I need to know where I shall stay, I mean what area. I'd love to be in Haniá but I realised I'd have more opportunities in the capital. Can anyone recommend a particular area/neighbourhood? I'm afraid I don't know the place :) I need some help please!
