    • How do you like Arillas?

      Arillas Mar 23, 2015 at 2:01 PM

      My family and I are thinking about spending one week to ten days in Arillas in late June. None of us have ever been to Greece, and we are just seeking a beautiful place to relax, play with our kids (ages 8 and 5), be on the beach, go to some nice restaurants, and also discover the area around Arillas. Could you tell me what you thought of your vacation in Arillas? Could you also tell me what kinds of things one can do in and around Arillas? Are there nice places or villages to visit nearby? I would be grateful for any and all advice and thoughts. How does Arillas compare to the rest of Corfu and vacationing on other Greek islands? Thanks for your help!

    • PLAN FOR TWO NIGHTS AND ONE DAY IN ATHENS

      Greece Mar 19, 2015 at 9:58 PM

      Hi, we, a middle aged couple are planning to visit Athens on our way to Santorini and Mykonos. We arrive one afternoon, have complete day two in Athens and will depart for Santorini on day three. On our return again we arrive one afternoon and will have a complete evening to spend in Athens. Could anyone suggest an itinerary for our time. Specifically, I would like to know:-
      1. Is it worth taking an evening / night tour of Athens?.
      2. Can we take a walking tour in the Day.
      3. Is there a free walking tour. If yes the timings please.
      3. If we have done the above, what would be left to do on the second evening.
      4. Suggestions for good tours are welcome. We would not wish to have exclusive tours but would like to join other groups.
      Thanks in advance.

      Greece Mar 28, 2015 at 3:57 AM

      Hi, We intend taking a Blue Star Ferry (Delos) from Athens to Santorini. One finds that there are Air Seats Lounges serial 1 to 5. Before we book our seats could anyone guide on:-
      1. The difference between lounges 1 to 5.
      2. Which have the best view while seated?
      3. Which lounge would offer the fastest exit? Does it matter in terms of time spent in exit?
      4. Needless to say we do plan to go on the deck while approaching Santorini. For this activity is there anything to chose between the lounges?

      Hi, I know the question has been put a number of times on the forum. Pardon me for repeating; just want to be doubly sure so that there is no hitch in our travel schedule. My wife and I are senior citizens and are travelling between Mykonos and Santorini in end Sep 2015. After reading suggestion so aptly given by fellow VT members, we have planned to take the Sea Jets ferry from Mykonos to Naxos and by Blue Star from Naxos to Santorini. We would obviously want to be fully confident on the travel schedule. Is there ANY reason why we should book in advance or can we be 100% sure of getting ticket from both ports prior to departure (other unforeseen situations of weather / ferry cancellations are of course understood).

    • GREEK ISLAND HOPPING - JULY-SEPT 2015

      Greece Mar 26, 2015 at 1:59 AM

      Hey there,

      Firstly - LOVE this VT Forum - I always receive so much useful info...

      My husband and I plan to island hop through the Cyclades, Greek Islands from late July - mid-September 2015.
      We don't like to plan or book ahead, preferring to just take each day as it comes.

      1) is it possible to just turn up to an island off the ferry and get accommodation at that time of year?

      2) are there any recommendations of "must see" islands, other than Santorini and Mykonos?

      Thanks in advance

I know that everybody says that it's really dangerous, but it's no option for me to avoid it at night time, because my plane lands around 8 pm. After all the reviews, I'm a bit scared to walk around with my suitcase. My hotel is only 20 meters from the subway station. Does that make it a bit safer? I won't have to walk around very long. And does anybody have any tips for me to "survive" my first night there?

      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!
