In Topic: update on the weather

29 May 2005 - 09:25 PM

This thread really scared me too when I first read it. However I've checked weather.com, etc, and although there was some bad weather in the last while, the forecast for the next 10 days seems to be sunny with decent temperatures. Nothing bad.

I'm off next friday myself, and the weather around then seems to be pretty much what I hoped for.

Can anyone on the ground confirm these weather reports, or compare them against what local reports are saying.

Cheers ;)

In Topic: Going to Hersonissos with my Girlfriend 1st July 2005

Myself and the gf, considered Hersonissos, but decided to go somewhere a little quieter (Gouves). But I imagine we'll spend quite a bit of time flocking in and out of Hersonissos. If I pass your hotel, I take a note of it's location and give you some more tailored advice if I can. I have no idea where it is, but we're going for 2 weeks, so I expect to cover a lot of ground.

We're also not big fans of the "lager drinking singletons" posse, and tend to avoid. But the odd night out will (as you say yourself) happen :lol:

Cheers for that. Will definately take the Spinalonga trip. As for the small villages up the hills, I definately want to explore those. As I said before, we're staying in Gouves, and apparently there are some lovely small places around there (am I right in thinking so?).

I genuinely can't wait.

On yet another tangent :roll:
- What's the weather like over there at the moment?
- How much do drinks cost? (bottled water, beer, soft drinks)
- Also I heard that the sewerage system is quite different from more western european countries in that, you dispose of your toilet paper in the bin, as opposed to flushing, is this true?, and if so, is there not a problem with regards the smell of all those toilets, etc. :lol:
- What is the average cost of a 3 course meal with wine in crete for two people?

Thanks again everyone, ye've been brilliant with all the advice so far :lol:

In the exact same boat as you Ryan, but we're heading away in two weeks. I will be back before you depart so will give you the low down by then. Which resort are you heading to?
