                Thanks for your comments, and the comment on my blog too. I try to please the boys too, but my girly things sell more!!

                Yes, I have visited Greece a few times now and everyone is so good at speaking English, but I would love to speak more Greek. I know a few words - I was so-oo pleased when a taxi driver taught me how to say thankyou in Greek!!

                So I will say it to you now: Efharisto (efxaristo?), mamarosa!! (I may have spelt it wrong!!)

                Whereabouts in Greece are you? I love the islands, they are so beautiful - and the people are always lovely, wherever you go. And the food is always lovely too!!!

                I thouht about Greece today. I was at a craft fair in New Brighton, Wirral, and we were overlooking the sea. It was lovely, but the sea here is grey, and I was thinking about the gorgeous turquoise blue seas in Greece. *sigh*

                  Oh, thank you so much, Wendy, I was moved by your last comment about the sea .... We have the sea and the sun, it is true, but we miss other things who make our life easier....anyway...I live in Crete, the biggest of the Greek islands. Have you ever been here? I will be so glad if you could come one day... I shall teach you many many Greek words (I am a teacher, so it is my job haha) By the way the Greek taxi driver did an excellent job, you spelled the "efharisto" perfect!


                  Thank you very much for your comment on my blog, too, and sorry about the incovienience of the Greek buttons (i am not sure i know how to fix that).

                    Yes, I have visited Crete! Loved it! I fell in love with Greece then, it was my first visit.

                    We stayed on the south of the island, in Plakias. It was a beautiful place. We walked up the mountains (haha - no car, it was perfect for me!) and visited a lovely small village. I loved the Greek tavernas, there were so many, all serving fabulous food. In one, we were given deep-fried ice cream, which I will never forget. I was amazed to be always given a free dessert or raki at the end of the meal.

                    The drive to the south wasn't as much fun - those mountain roads! - but very interesting with stunning scenery. We came into Hania (Xania, Chania? There seem so many transations from the Greek, I never know which one is correct!) Airport, but didn't see much of the town.

                    I would love to visit Crete again, and to see more of the island. We did an easycruise trip last year, and visited Mykonos, Paros, Sifnos and another island close to Athens whose name I've forgotten (I can't believe that!!) - we had our birthday meal there. The cruise was a surprise present for my partner's 50th birthday (and it was my birthday the same day)... he thought he was going to London, haha !!

                    Do you teach children? I was a teacher in a prison until last year.

                      Don't worry about the buttons - it makes life more interesting to have to try and figure things out sometimes!

                        What a surprise for him, uh??? I suppose he shares your love to Greece...anyway, it is time for you to come to Crete again, next summer maybe... There are so many places you should see. Of cource, I 'll guide you and will try to avoid all the mountain roads (allthough very difficult project haha).

                        Teacher in a prison? One good friend of mine was teaching in a prison for a while... I think it is a very interesting expierience! I teach Greek Language and Literature, History, Ancient Greek and Latin in High School. We are preparing to start again now in September, if the flue doesn't close the schools before they even open

                          Yes, it was a big surprise...he also loves Greece, and would like to live there one day. It was lovely to see so many different islands, and watch sunrise from the ship. And sunsets in different places.

                          Wow, it would be so amazing to have a local guide to Crete! I don't expect to avoid mountain roads, I will just whimper and panic at every bend in the road. It either becomes very annoying or very amusing for whoever is with me! Probably a bit of both!

                          Oh, and who better to teach me Greek than a Greek language teacher?!

                          Which part of Crete are you in? And which part of Crete do you think is the best?

                            I live in Iraklion but I wouldn't say it is the best part of Crete
                            I like very much the beaches in south Chania and Rethymnon, Preveli Beach (near Plakias, perhaps you have gone there...), The Vai Beach with the palm trees forest, the Samaria Gorge, Knossos with the ancient minoan civilization and many many picturesque villages all over the island... Outside Crete, 3 or 4 hours with the ferry boat is the Santorini island, the most beautiful place on the world, I believe!

                            Well, there are so many places for you (and for us, too) to see!!!

                              Yes, we visited Preveli Beach, we went by boat, it is a beautiful place.

                              My friend went to Santorini recently and she loved it. I would love to go. I have only read about Knossos.

                              Someone told me we really should walk through the Samaria Gorge, but there were two reasons we didn't: it was August and far too hot for such a long walk, and my partner has multiple sclerosis and if he walks too far he will be quite poorly afterwards. After the walk up the mountain by Plakias, next day his legs stopped working properly, and as he was swimming in the sea when it happened it was a bit scary!

                              I think we need more than a week ot two...
