It’s not been my year for plastic. I had another one of those very frustrating days yesterday which was completely unnecessary as far as I can see. I was expecting a new ATM card from my bank in the UK as the old one ran out at the end of last month. I checked the […]

Turned a bit colder here yesterday, with a chill wind in the afternoon, though the sea was flat as I was at the desk working in the afternoon. I know of a few folk heading off to Rhodes tomorrow for various things so let’s hope the weather remains good for them. I’m planning another trip […]

We had a pleasant weekend thank you, how about you? Can’t remember what I did on Saturday but on Sunday we took a walk down to Pedi to help some friends who are in the middle of moving house. This involved a very nice stir-fry which was followed by a bus journey back up to […]

Because of storms and bad weather, there were no boats to or from Symi from Friday through until Wednesday […]

Yesterday was Carnival, the day before Clean Monday and the start of Lent. The day didn’t start off in a very promising fashion with a huge deluge of rain and hail. There was so much of it that at one point I could barely see the house opposite and for a while it looked like […]

Here’s one of those blog posts that more or less writes itself thanks to contributions from other people, messages and photos from Neil. First of all, thanks to Lyndon who has the Flora And Fauna of Symi site  talking about the yellow flower I didn’t know the name of in the post the other day […]
