Now got a pair of bloody ringos that are been towed the full width of the bay from the jetty to the far end, as well as at least 3 jetskis
I think we've finally lost the old Plakias

The app is called "Hangout on holiday" it is not just an Olympic app it covers loads of tour operators for many destinations.

coming back to Plakias July 24 next year and intention is to take my yankee gal up to Manchester/leicester after Crete
so would need a one way from preferably Chania , that's where we will arrive from Athens inward journey
any suggestions. I have perused some travel sites and had moderate success with jet2 and tug
any advice would be appreciated

he was on the boat 2001 when we spread some of my brothers ashes in souda bay July 25th
nice to see sephi looking well , and catch up on our lives
the other taxi was on our last night we went to the memorial stone at souda mare
we were joined by a family from Liverpool wo were at cyano
then a nice last night dinner at Gallini tavern
where we had visited earlier in week to give condolences to the family of my mate manolis

Plakias / Re: Slow painful death
« Last post by reddiablo on June 26, 2019, 06:20:04 PM »
well its been nine years since I last trod on the treasured area of Plakias
decided it was time to bring my yankee partner Josephine from our casa in Tampa FL
she loved Plakias immediately , arrived at hotel cyano 3-30 pm
unpacked swiftly and then walked to my brothers memorial stone overlooking souda bay
it is positioned just west of soda mare hotel
we left a mythos on the stone , my brother Thomas Murney perished July 25 th2000 in a traffic fatality near sisses
he was with his friend and taxi driver Zak zourpakis
Zak picked us up at our iraklion hotel and we hugged as usual, then took us to cyano Plakias
there was a trial in iraklion may 2003 , rightfully Zak was cleared of any fault ,
he has become a friend and has driven me several times .
my friend stellios kaoudis without whom we would not have this inspiring stone memorial
knew I was in town while walking his dog he spotted the mythos
he visited us at cyano which he had not seen , seems his relatives have a stake in the property
I will post about cyano on hotel section, we were very pleased and have paid 30%deposit for 24 July 2020 , 20 years since the catastrophe
sorry the post is long, I'm avoiding the Tampa FL intense heat
I met many old friends of Thomas , they know me from several visits 2001-2010
had a great journey flying via New York to Athens .one night in rafina,then 8 hours ferry to Santorini
had 3 nights there before ferry and two nights in iraklion
managed to find the lawyer whom I last saw may 2003 at the trial,
paid my usual respects to Nikos kazantzakis , always visit his tomb when im in iraklion
so Plakias was marvelous , finally met Joe at his sports bar , he knew tom very well
so here's to next July and a full week at cyano , coming via Chania this time , rent a car and show jo the east of Crete
