Ploppy, thanks a lot for all the effort you put into this forum. This recent annoying attack didn't make it easier for you. You really give a lot to the commuity. I want you to know that I really appreciate it and if I'm ever at Plakias when you're there, I'd love to show my thankfulness in the form of some nice cool Mythoses.

Για σου !
Andy
No problem Andy.

How well that Mythos would go down now. This room is like a furnace    3 computers don't help!



We overlap with you Ploppy - consider those Mythos to be on us. We can be found every night in Medousa at 7pm (large queues permitting :'(  ) and thereafter usually at the Livicon. I'd love to meet you and we owe you one (several). You have our photo, DO accost us if you see us.

Hope it will be hot but no Computers

Ploppy,

I have visited the forum once or twice recently, and wondered what had brought on all the recent changes/improvements.  Today I looked into my "Bulk" file in my personal e-mail account for the first time in several weeks, and now I understand why...

Considering all the hard work you put into running this forum, I was incensed at what had happened.  I admire your efforts at meeting this latest challenge, and a Mythos is on me should we happen to be in Plakias at the same time.

September must be very different from May, John, when for 2 evenings we were the only ones sat outside at the Medousa. Even the Harribobs were inside (maybe northerners are less hardy than southerners).

Before anyone thinks this might be a reflection on the Medousa food or hospitality, both were very good indeed (recommend the spaghetti carbonara- not very Greek I know!)

We ALWAYS sit outside - if necessary towards the end (Mid October) in fleeces and anoraks. It has been known for Babis to raise his eyebrows at us in mock disgust in these conditions (rare as it is usually warm enough for everybody to be outside) September is HOT and always too warm to eat inside. Towards mid October it sometimes gets a little chilly in the evening when a few people go inside. So yes I suspect Sept/Oct must be warmer than May - at least early May.

Er - we are very much Northerners

John,

I've never been able to form a definitive opinion of this in spite of having been in Greece at these time every year since 1995. (i.e. during first 3 weeks of May and period Sept 20- Oct 16 and from Kefalonia on the one hand to Rhodes on the other and also Lesvos to Crete). The only thing you can be sure of is that the evenings are lighter in May and the sea is warmer later. Sunburn risk is much lower late in the season. Otherwise air temperatures (day/evening) are quite similar, as is the chance of rain.

For some reason I've not fathomed, the last two weeks of the season are usually more expensive than the first two.

Both times are very pleasant to be in Greece in my humble opinion.

The last 2 weeks of the season are more expensive due to lack of space on return flights to the UK as the holiday companies are sending all there resort staff back during this time & all the other people returning from the whole summer ( lucky people )
