Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic 2019

Have you not tried booking it yourselves?
We  have not used a holiday company for the last 15 years. Cheaper and you get what you want.
Even book our own Plakias based taxi.
Give it a go.

Plakias / Octobre update

All packed and ready to leave tomorrow morning. Last time 10 days for this year.
Weather is looking good so hopefully some beach and sea. I will try to keep you all updated.

I forgot to mention that we had to pay an extra 1.5Euros per day in tax for each room. Only for places rated 3 stars and above, apparently. We were given the safe for free, though (would have cost 31.5Euros otherwise). Interestingly, we couldn't pay it with the room bill but had to pay it seperately, in cash.

Huge waves today but sun now shining.  Warm and very humid.

Been here for 11days go home next Tuesday.  As has been reported some dodgy weather and there is more to come currently the sky is very grey and the wind is still strong.  The thunder storm the other night was violent with associated heavy rain.  Today we have a Red Alert for thunderstorms, so will wait and see.  Seems like the cyclone has got us.  Much of the islands have been effected also, with tales of ferry and flight cancellations.  With any luck our flight home could be effected and we have to stop here, what a shame.  Notwithstanding the weather, we have and will continue to enjoy Plakias.

Yesterday turned out to be wet and windy all day. The town was jam packed with cars but not many people braved the weather.

During the night there was thunder, lightning, lots of rain - the sea looks brown today with all the run off. I didn't hear a thing as I have to use earplugs because of the wife's snoring.

Today is a lot better, less wind and some blue skies. +22. Our last day here, tomorrow we fly back to cold, wet Norway for another long winter. As usual we've had a wonderful three weeks here.

Yesterday had the strongest wind we've ever experienced here. We still went to Damnoni for lunch but it was a battle coming back! Luckily it didn't rain until the late evening.

Today is not quite so windy but I did get wet on my morning walk. It's cloudy now but expected to get a bit better later on. A shame that our last days here this year are not good for the girls to sunbathe.

I remember the tourist festival being cancelled 4 years ago due to wind/rain - a shame after all the work that went on.  We arrive Friday so will try and bring better weather with us - the forecasts are mixed to say the least, but we’re used to September/October weather in Plakias and hoping all will be fine.

Not Plakias, but people in Sougia told us that all rooms in town were booked until mid-October. The extended season of retired northern Europeans is very healthy for southern Crete.
