Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic discounts?

Spend over 800 to go to Plakias? Far too much! Already booked with Olympic, without any discount, but way lower price than 800 (total for 2 of us).
The Olympic 12 Islands of Christmas discount scheme did not materialise this year, so we are very pleased we booked in October when the Easyjet flights for next October were released, and the Olympic prices were realistic, and only a little more than we paid for 2018.

Hi  I also saw those offers and decided to try them out.  I booked a holiday to Syros and got 150 discount, super.  It would seem to work OK.

Cheers  Tony

I had a really nice mail from Rutger:
  • Thank you very much! A mister going by the name Roger Foden, who occasionally reads the forum, saw your post.
    He sent me an e-mail to a link to download a digital version.
    I would like to thank you very much for your help. It really gives the project an enormous boost.
    If there's anything I can do in return, just let me know
In acknowledging his reply, I said:
  • Many thanks for your reply. I am so glad one of the Plakias regulars was able to help!
    Nothing is needed in return just keep up the good work, and keep us informed of developments!
And many thanks from me to Roger!

Holiday Companies / Olympic discounts?

I must be on an Olympic mailing list somewhere.
Yesterday I received a mini-brochure regarding this years holidays.
There was a section offering the following discounts:

  • 80 off when you spend 800 - code SALE80
    150 off when you spend 1250 - code SALE150
    Solo travellers - 35 off your booking - code SOLO35

I have no idea if they are still current, but if you are about to make a booking, it might be worth trying one!
Please let us know if you do.

I hope someone here will be able to help him, but have you suggested to Rutger that he put the question on the English language TripAdvisor Samos Forum?  He doesn't appear to have asked there, and there may be a better chance of an answer. He may have to word it in such as way that doesn't give away that he is doing research, to stay within TripAdvisor guidelines.

I'm hoping one of the long standing Plakias regulars can help with this request I received today.

  • First I'll explain a bit about myself. My name is Rutger Niemeijer, I'm a 22-year old student from the Netherlands.
    For my studies, Ecology and Wildlife, I am doing an internship at Archipelagos, an organisation on the Greek island Samos.
    With a few other people, I'm trying to make a list, or an index, of the plant species on the island. During our research we found a post you made in 2014 which said that Mr. Lance Chilton has sadly passed away. As you might know he once authored a book titled 'Plant list for Samos'. This work would be very useful to have for us. Since we couldn't find it online I was wondering if you perhaps know any place where we can find a digital version of the book, or if there is anyone on the island that we could borrow the work from.
    My e-mail is rutgerniem@gmail.com, in case you want to answer this question.
    I hope to hear from you soon.
    Yours sincerely,
    Rutger Niemeijer

It looks as if Rutger is engaged on some important work - could anyone help please?
Where to eat...or not! / Re: No more Harakas ?

Sent Sonia an email wishing them both a happy retirement and received a lovely response last night. They will be missed...I've been eating at the Harakas since 1987 although I'm not sure they've been there that long....just me !
