Hi All
I took this picture at Heraklion as there were so many people asking for some information. Hope it helps.

Plakias / Concert
« on: September 17, 2004, 08:46:40 AM »
Hi all
Can anyone tell me what the concert was all about on Tuesday 31.08 in the car park in the front of the Navaro? I asked around and all I got was that, there is a band in town and they are going to play. Well I sort of worked that one out for myself!
I get the impression that it might have been a local PR exercise as the organisers were handing out booklets with all the local contact numbers for the areaís accommodation. So if anyone needs any telephone/fax numbers or email addresses for any of the apartments, hotels or studios in the area. Iím your man.

Plakias / IM BACK!
« on: September 13, 2004, 02:26:29 PM »
Hi All
Got back from Plakias on 07.09, itís been four years since my last visit, or anywhere else for that matter. Iíve had a few probs, so holidays have been on hold.
It was quite emotional as I turned left and down the Plakias hill, mainly because I had to leave Tina back in the UK.
It hasnít changed a bit, a couple of new bars but basically the place I know. It was good to see John O again and I apologise for not getting back to you on that drink John. Next year youíre on, and you will probably be sorry you asked. This year was an attempt to get back to reality and I am still finding my feet.
Iíve been keeping in touch with the board, but for obvious reasons, my contributions have been minimal.
I followed the First Choice saga with interest, as I had booked the Irida with them and attempted all the things that others had tried, to get some info for next year. Thatís why I grabbed Gary at the welcome meeting (my first one) and got the truth. I, and probably everyone who spoke to Gary appreciated his honesty. I know Gary has been reading the message board, and I would just like to say that youíre a nice guy Gary and you are doing a great job. I know you are going to be sorry to leave Plakias at the end of the season as you have acquired Plakiasitos, itís a disease which is not easy to get rid of and I think that you have a lot of sympathy for the problems that FC has caused the regulars.
Itís great to be back on the board and hopefully I can make some contribution, Iím going up the agent on Saturday to book for next year, now I know whoís taking over.
One question: Who nicked the ĎWelcome to Plakiasí sign at the top of the hill? Souvenirs are one thing Guy's, but thatís not nice!
