In Topic: Bus Heraklion To Sitia

No petrol in Sitia at the moment, but limited supplies seem to be getting through at the "other end" of Crete, so hope it won't be too long before we get some here.

Yes, you've read it correctly as far as getting to Ag Nik is concerned, but if you want to go all the way to Sitia then then the latest one you can get is the 19.15, which becomes the 20.45 Ag Nik to Sitia.

Hope this helps. The bus journey is great!

Tim, can you please remind me what time the Souda Bay Remembrance Sunday Service is? Sorry to hijack this post, but it just reminded me that I needed to check this!

In Topic: Dangers Of Cheap Car Hire

You'd probably have difficulty finding a car hire with cover for damage to the underneath of the car. It is perfectly normal here for this to be excluded, mainly because of the "off road" issue. It is just too tempting, given the wonderful landscape, to drive off road, but this should definitely be left to those with their own 4x4s!

Ray, has it never crossed your mind that the people who moan about life here in Crete are the sort who will moan wherever they are? People who are happy here are, by & large, just getting on with their lives. We all have things which annoy us but, in all situations, people with complaints are the most vocal - how many post on airline sites, for instance, about their positive experiences??

We're happy here - you'd have to pay us to go back to the UK - but there are things that irritate, of course. Being pragmatic people, we look out of the window at the wonderful view and remember why we came here - the irritations disappear or take on a far lower level of importance. Let's face it - life in the UK is pretty awful these days for many people, and we should count ourselves lucky to be out of it.
