Gossip / Euro

That's one of the things I liked about it. Even in Greece, I spotted German, French and Irish currency in circulation.
In terms of national identity - that's never really bothered me too much (anyway, I'm Cornish, Not English)

Holiday Companies / Reps

I guess I've been spoilt.
I remember Reps like Kelly and Jacinta. They knew the resort, the area, and how to look after their customers.
I can't say I was impressed this year. I saw more of the Olympic rep while she was drunk in the bar (where she rarely bought a drink!) I hear the First Choice rep wasn't much better. Difficult to judge really, as she was also drunk every time I saw her.
Am I just getting old?

Where to stay / Dora

Featured in the Olympic brochure for the last few years, this is an older style property. Although it is showing it's age in some ways, we have used it for the last few years.
It's location is quiet, at the far end of town, only a few hundred yards from the Ostraco Bar - and the Secret Nest Taverna (great for fish!).
The main bonus for us is Dora, who looks after the property herself. It is always spotless, linen is clean, and she even makes sure there is soap, washing up liquid etc. in every room.
And don't be surprised if a bottle of Raki turns up on the dressing table!

Plakias / Disabilities

A message on the old board asked about facilities in the resort for disabled travellers. Any information you can add here about special facilities would be most welcome.

Well I won't rest 'till I get you there Andy!
And hey - let's make it public - thanks for all the help with setting up this new forum. Couldn't have done it without you mate!

This year was my first experiences with the Euro, I soon got used to it - and I think it's time the UK joined in. It also seemed to me that it didn't affect prices in the shops much, as everyone feared. What do you think?

Announcements / New board
« on: November 02, 2002, 07:59:37 PM »
I've had a message board on the site for a while now, and it's proved popular. However, in using various free providers, I have been let down several times.
I have now moved the site to InVision, a professional hosting service. This has also enabled me to use a different type of board.
I hope you will approve! The discussion is more structured, and other features like a calender and member to member messages make this so much better.
Please take some time to find your way around, and help to contribute to the Plakias community.

Please come in and look around - and start posting!

Holiday Companies / 2003 offerings
« on: November 02, 2002, 07:45:08 PM »
The 2003 brochures are starting to appear. Let us know about your bookings, and what new options you discover for 2003.
I have updated the info on the site as far as possible, but your postings will help to keep it correct.
