1.  Take out your laptop.

2.  Slowly open your laptop.

3.  Turn it on.

4.  Make certain your neighbour is watching.

5.  Open your internet browser.

6.  Close your eyes for a few moments,

open them and then look up to the sky, or the heavens if you will.


7.  Breathe deeply and open the site



8.  Look at the expression on your neighbour's face.

i was doing a little   searching on the net and came across a lovely review of Plakias on the holiday truths site

Holiday-Truth Readers Reports

mr & mrs jones from liverpool travelled to Plakias in 9/2006

mr & mrs jones rated Plakias as follows:
   mr & mrs jones Posted this report and said:

the resort we stayed in was lovley and very central, the bus service was exellent, the main resorts of hesonisis and malia were in walking distance, the people were as usual very polite and very freindly,the weather and scenary was beutiful as we expected it would.

i see there are a fair few of us around at the end of september  

we're coming out on the 23rd ( all things being equal) for a week in plak and then a week in paleo

shall we organise a meal and a quiet drink at the medousa? i know how much babbi looks forward to such events    

or have the skelous crew organised their own already???

PlakChat / excess baggage charges
« on: June 10, 2008, 11:35:59 PM »
i'm sure this was discussed elsewhere but i am damned if i can find it

manchester airport two weeks ago, we were pretty sure we were close to the 20 kilos limit but i was very surprised to be told the first case was 24.7 kilos and they were going to charge me £25 for it!

remembering t'other thread i asked to see their calibration certificate and there was a definite buttock clenching behind the desk, the supervisor came over and told me their scales were better than mine so i asked why? show me the cert ( they didn't have one) the case was then re-weighed on the adjacent scale and miraculously came down to 20.5K  

to show their authority they made us transfer half a kilo to our hand luggage, wonderful people....

Holiday Companies / XL airways
« on: May 01, 2008, 08:05:18 PM »
i got my tickets tonight for manchester/chania tonight

i was disgusted to see that XL has reduced the baggage allowance to 15 kilos and now what to charge you £7.50 per person per  journey for an additional 5 kilos, with the threat of £22.50 charge at the airport if you don't pre-buy the allowance

so effectively they have increased the cost of the flights by £30, seeing as most of us chose our airline by cost i think this is absolutely terrible
