So, anybody staying in the Kalyves area anytime next year will be welcome to visit us - hopefully Laid Back Lil we'll finally be able to meet up!

Remember, one of the things you like about Cretans is their laid back attitude - this also applies to builders, workmen, delivery drivers etc
I remind Alan of this each time he believes the person that says "tomorrow" or "in the afternoon" and then gets stressed when that person fails to appear as agreed.
We look forward to reading about your adventures; meanwhile good luck with sorting out the UK end of things.

Firstly congratulations on the news.
Secondly, I hope to be out to Kalyves in March to help someone with some painting ready for the new season.
Thirdly, I might be looking for somewhere to stay!!!!!
Look forward to having a Mythos sometime, somewhere in Kalyves next year!

I returned from Crete yesterday, & I'm always sad when I have to come back to the UK & leave my house. I can't wait to make my move permanent, but I think it'll be another few years yet. I'm so, so envious!!!
Good luck with the move & house build.

Dave, you'd be very welcome to stay with us if you're stuck, providing we've got ourselves settled by then and we'll certainly meet up for a drink or three while you're there.
Yvonne, promise we'll get to see you in Kritsa next year, providing we've got somebody to look after our cats as it would need to be an overnight - if I remember there's a small hotel there. One of the things I want to do in the spring when we've got ourselves settled is to start doing some walking again - I've been reading with envy about the walks you do, but my left leg hasn't been up to doing anything too strenuous for a while. Hopefully, if we start on some gentle walks I can build the strength back again and get more adventurous.
Anyway, will keep you posted on progress - will update my blog with more detail, when we get timescales sorted.

We've just got back too. We had a brilliant few days, wall to wall sun and plenty of snorkelling which was great fun. I picked up what I thought was a dead star fish in my goggles only to find him moving, and then spent the next twenty minutes or so trying to persuade him to move onto a rock under the waves - much fun and probaby never to be enjoyed again. Good luck with the move - and yes, we look foward to that long awaited mythos! x
