      Best Way to Get from Bitola to Meteora

      Greece Aug 18, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      I will be in Bitola in October with two work colleagues. We will be all over Republic of Macedonia on our visit but I know these two guys will absolutely love Meteora and I would like to try to get there for two days / one night when we're in the area.
      From Bitola, what would you suggest as the best way to do this?
      I was thinking of taking a taxi from Bitola to the border, then a Greek taxi to Florina. From there, though ...

      I see a network of three buses as an option (risky, though, with timetables could add a lot of time and if you miss one you're stuck).
      Can I rent a car in Florina (which would be helpful once at Meteora)?
      Could I lengthen the taxi route once inside Greece to a town where I could rent a car?

      Since we have only two days, we'd have to avoid a long detour to, say, Thessaloniki, in order to make this happen. It would be a real treat for my companions, though, so if we can pull it off I'd like to give it a try.

      Thanks for your help.

      Greece Aug 2, 2015 at 11:32 AM

      We plan to visit some Aegean islands in September. Can we see interesting rock formations and colors in Milos, staying there a few days and renting a car? We can take boat tours if there are any after the main season, but not take a boat for self-sailing.

      How many days should I plan? We think of going by ferry to Santorini, and probably end in Crete - where we always go.

      Arrange myself or use an agent?

      Greece Aug 30, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      We're just buying tickets to Greece (Aegean) for about two and a half weeks, from September 10th. Planning to visit Milos and Santorini, and then Crete which is our usual destination in Greece.

      We always arrange our trips ourselves, and never used a travel agent. I've been reading Matt Barrett's websites since I've got internet, maybe 1997, and never used his advice of arranging the trip through a travel agent. This time we have several islands with different transportation connections, is it a good idea of using an agent, maybe this time with the elections in the middle, and I don't know which strikes?

      We've been in Greece in the past at election times, and several strikes.

      Found a puppy with the collar

      by Kovica Online Now Aug 10, 2014 at 12:56 AM

      Hi everyone,

      Two weeks ago a puppy with the collar shoved up in front of my house. He was dehydrated and starved and very very scared. I gave him food and water and took him to the vet. Of course, he doesn't have a chip and the vet told me he is 5 months old. I printed out posters and tried to put them around the town but after just couple days all of them where taken down and thrown in the trash.

      I named the puppy Frank. He is incredibly smart. He asks to go out when he needs to pee or poop, even off the lead he walks just couple meters away and always follows me wherever we go. He understands the word "NO" and is very obedient. He rarely barks and sometimes I event forget he is there because of how quite he is. He loves people and he is full of love. I'm asking you all to give me an advice how to find him a good home. I don't know many people here and it is really hard to find people who are interested in taking a dog. I'm staying here for two more months and I can't take him with me after those two months. Or if anyone knows someone who would take him, please let me know!

       

      Thank you all!
