In Topic: GPS map for iPAQ 2110

Or, alternatively, you could go to:

MAP OF GREECE.
One of the top navigation software suitable for any PocketPC. Includes latest digital maps for Attiki (Athens & Pireus), Thessaloniki, Patras, Kavala, Ioaninna, Larisa, Lamia, Bolos, Chalkida, Chania, Rethimno, Heraklio and Ag. Nikolaos (Crete)
============unquote============

And have your Heraklio map, and for wherever else you may want to go in Greece, and dispatched to whatever location you prefer in a handful of days, for as little as 133 Euros, even before landing in Crete (where looking for a GPS map might prove a little bit troublesome).

Could you now send positive energies to me too: I have such an headache after having searched for it on google for as long as 3 minutes LOL!

good luck!

There are others in the other forum. I hope they give the surfers a laugh.

It's sort of a lampoon of the worries at times expressed about Crete.

When I have time and the occasion presents itself I will wirte a few other of such fake "reports", provided they give some fun. The irony would be if anyone would at first sight take them seriously ahaha :)

I never complained about the weather. Do you mean you really took my post about the kretiphoons as a... serious one uh?

In Topic: In Heraklion

Although Crete is well known, as of course eveybody knows, throughout the world for its crazy gay nightlife, it is regrettable indeed that I have to communicate that the recent thunderstorms that so rightly concerned so many tourists and that have mercilessly battered the island beyond recognition (some entire villages have disappeared from the map, as the Koni Village, which a kretiphoon has made fly to the moon), have affected the wild gay nightlife as well.

You have to understand this: the island of Crete is divided into two parts. The part that is situated to the north is called the North part, whereas the other part, situated to the south, is called the South part.
Be sure you have fully grasped the momentous implications of this subtelty and yet paramount distinction, because otherwise you might fail understanding all the importance of the hereby further communications.

Of course it all depends on how you trace the dividing line, because if you trace it with too thick a pencil, that would produce a middleway part; such middleway part does not exist, so be sure that you're using a very thin pencil to be sure you're drawing the proper boundaries.

Now, the North part of Crete is mostly inhabited by persons whose nightlife is oriented in a straight way. The South part of Crete, being opposite to it, is populated by persons whose nightlife is oriented the other way round. Makes sense.

Though in a few occasions rumors of a forthcoming secession war between these two parts surfaced, till now the island has managed pretty well to avoid it.

Yet a few days ago the two sets of tourists came to bad terms and were facing each other on the borderline wielding and prying bottles of Mythos, knives, teaspoons, forks, jugs of beer, and drink stirrers. Some were even equipped with bows, whose arrows were made with rhum and coke straws reinforced with toothsticks.

These two arrays were about to engage the fiercest fight that the island ever witnessed in the most recent times, when all of a sudden the kretiphhons that have recently reduced the entire island to a wasteland, unexpectedly entered the game running amock between these hosts.

The two about to battle arrays got disarrayed so badly by the kretiphoons, that the lasting consequence is that now straight tourists from the North got blended with not straight tourists from the South. As you may well imagine, the greatest and most regrettable confusion ensued.

Though this is still going to be investigated as per its long range consequences, many sociologists regard this as the reason why nowadays in Crete tourists have become so wary of sexuality: no one wants to end up having fun with someone who might not be of the same kind.
About this you can read: "The I almost did it attitude, or the fling that never was: an inquiry about the recent social trend of tourists after the devastating mental effects induced by the kretiphoon season", Dimitris Kinsey (1945-2009), Indiana Institute Of Study For Deviant Behaviours, published on 2007 by Penguin editions.

Enjoy :-)
