Hello to you all and have a good Easter, I don't know if the following link will interest anybody but it does give a lot of info. It covers all of Europe and allows you to zoom in on areas of interest, selecting temperature, wind, rain etc. In real time.

This is the link.

Hope you all have good holidays in Plakias this year and continue to do so and may see some of you in September.

I have just been checking on the punctuality of the above flight from Manchester to Heraklion and return, due out from Manchester at 06:15 this morning. We are due to fly out on the 20th Sep so I tend to check the flights for a few weeks beforehand. The last 3 weeks it as been returning early but today there's no record of it from Manchester or Heraklion, as any one flown today or heard off changes.
Thanks in advance,

Now that we are out of the eu does any one know if we will have to have visas to travel to Greece or other eu country's, will we have our passports stamped, do we have to go through the red channel (non eu) at the airport etc. I assume we will have the benefit of duty free again. Travelling soon to Syros then back to Plakias in September. Hope some body is more knowledge than me.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

It appears that Crete is currently having some record breaking temperatures, 30C+ degrees recorded in the Chania area.
You may find this link for Greece interesting,
A bit of playing around and mainland and other islands can be viewed.
Hope this is interesting to all and if anyone from the forum is currently in Crete can they confirm that the temperatures are exceptional.


Holiday Companies / Have Olympic lost the plot

Interesting email from Olympic today concerning our visit to Plakias in September, advised that the flight time from Manchester to Heraklion is amended and the return flight 2 weeks later will be from Chania. Contact customer services for queries or email flight changes, (email strongly recommended as they are experiencing a high volume of phone calls.) Checking the booking reference dates and times they all refer to last years holiday, does this mean they owe me compensation according to there booking conditions as the change is greater than 12 hours, (nearly 12 months). lol. 

Gossip / Tourist numbers

I have noticed from a few of the other Greek forums that the visitors so far this summer are down dramatically on various islands. Has any body else read similar reports. I hope that the people who have been to Plakias already this summer can report good numbers in the village.

Hi all, does any one know which airline Olympic are using for there main flights this year. We booked last year for Plakias and it had Germania as the airline but so far I haven't seen them on Manchester departure / arrival boards.
