Forum and Website discussion / How do I update my profile?
« on: August 05, 2004, 02:38:29 PM »
I'm not a computer whizzkid - can you tell me how to update my profile? I've looked in "Help" and I've been into "Mt controls" but when I try and add and update my profile, I get the following message:

"You must complete the form fully before proceeding. Please go back and check the data you entered"

I don't have some of the info to complete the fields - does this mean my last visit to Plakias is doomed to remain in June 2003?!


PlakChat / Skinaria (Shinaria?) Beach Hotel?
« on: July 08, 2004, 12:57:20 PM »
We've been going to Plakias for about 4 years now and have noticed that there are a few abandoned (mostly unfinished) hotels around (eg the one by Hapimag). The one that really intrigues us is the Skinaria Beach Hotel - it's on the road going down to the beach of the same name - it's the one with the Libyan Star bar/restaurant at the back of the beach.

I can remember when we first drove past it was either open, or only recently closed. Each year it's become more run down, and this year the reception area is being used for storing hay! There's no fencing or security so we went to explore and it's amazing. Most things have been taken - but in what was the dining room we found old menus and even orders that waiters had taken, along with a few postcards of the hotel and salt and pepper pots! The pool was empty and the gardens overgrown, but some of the bedrooms (all broken into now, and some used by goats!) had safes still in the wardrobes, and a few even had blankets left.

Does anyone know what happened - and why it should be like the Marie Celeste?
