After our fab time in Plakias last month - my boyfrend and I  are planning our October holiday  what is the weather like in Crete in October?
We can't work out where will still be relatively warm by then!

Plakias / nearly there

In Plakias now - no wind at all today and not so much yesterday so the winds seem to be blowing themselves out  hopefully
However I go home tomorrow so they will probably disappear altogether

Plakias / We are here

We arrived in Plakias the ungodly hours of saturday morning - and you are all right - its FAB!
Unbelievably windy though at the moment
Just checking email and thought I'd say HI!

We are in Plakias at the moment (first visit ever) and are having a FAB time but the wind is monstrous!!!!
So bad at the moment that it is agony to go on the beach because of the blowing shingly sand whipping - its like loads of injections at once !!!
The locals reckon it is unusual and only started when we arrived LOL and it shouldn't last too long!!!
Would definitely be a nightmare in contacts though


Plakias / We're off )

We  actually go tomorrow - seems like forever since we booked it - I hope Pakias will be as good as you guys have made it sound - since discovering this message board I have just got more and  more excited about my trip
Will report back in 2 weeks

Plakias / swimming pools

We are staying in the NIKOS studios - anyone know if there is a pool near there?

Where to stay / going to plakias
« on: June 25, 2003, 05:32:12 PM »
We booked also knowing nothing about the place - but once I found the site I have got more and more excited about my trip!
We go on the 18th July till about 2nd August - can't wait!

Plakias / More Questions
« on: June 16, 2003, 07:10:43 PM »
Its now only about 5 weeks until we finally visit Plakias and I have a few more questions!!

1.) Am concerned it will be very hot at night so was planning to pack a couple of electric fans - however since they are so bulky was wondering if it might be possible just to buy some there - I got my last one in Spain and it was similarly priced to over here - I am assuming there won't be a B and Q type place - but what do you think experienced Plakias goers? Should I pack them or will I be able to get them there?
(If I buy them there I will give them away at end of trip if they won't fit in luggage)

2.) Have multiple problems with food - what sort of food places are there? I am assuming typical Greek restaurants which I probably won't be able to eat in because of allergies etc - unless staff speak good English and can put up with a fussy customer LOL

3.) I have forgotten question 3 but I did have one so will return later when I remember it LOL

Thanks in advance for any help!

PlakChat / The train!!!!!

LOL Your opinion will be far more common I think ... I don't know many other people that like the trains either!
I just love them - they make me laugh I think they are so silly and so inappropriate so much of thetime that they are Fab LOL

PlakChat / The train!!!!!
« on: May 08, 2003, 07:06:16 PM »
I was just looking on the Plakias.co.uk site and I saw the link about the train!
I am so excited - I adore these trains -  have been on hundreds of them - I am an addict. (sad too)

Has anyone been on it? They all look the same but are very different - went on one a couple of years ago that knocked things over all the time, another year was on one that got stuck under a bridge... I can't wait to go on the train

Plakias / Concerned about situation?

Thank you

That was what I was hoping to hear!

Plakias / Concerned about situation?
« on: March 22, 2003, 10:00:35 AM »
Have holiday in Plakias booked for July, was going to go and pay the rest of it at travel agent yesterday but didn't as it was suggested to me that because of the war we may not go?
Is anyone else concerned about that? (Im not aiming to start a political discussion BTW) - just not sure whether I should be concerned or not - Mum says it is pretty close to Turkey which may not be a good thing - but I can't tell from my map how close it really is.

Anyone any suggestions - just not sure whether to hold off on final payments till nearer the time???
