Finally, We’ve Made It

Post by Bryn Mawr »

Having had our flights on hold since April we have finally made it back to Crete - only to find the whilst we were in the air Crete was declared a quarantine area :-)

Not a problem, the prefecture we’re in, Lasithi, is Covid clear and the quarantine list will be totally different by the time we go back to the UK.

I would think that being quarantined on Crete would be favorable to many other locations I can think of.

Well done. I expect you need an early night.

Out of interest, does Crete have any refugee provision?

Especially as our new grandson is coming out for the last two weeks of our stay with his mum, we could all stay out here in the sun :D

It's like getting across the Berlin Wall by the sound of it.

When are your last two weeks? Not this side of Christmas I hope.

Sadly the end of October, I’d be happier with another month or so but family calls :-)

I'm family. The best you can say is that family is divided on the issue.

After pounding parts of western and central Greece meteorologists have predicted a rare Mediterranean hurricane-like storm, or medicane, is headed south towards the island of Crete.
You can post a photo.

Kefalonica was badly hit by flooding but the worst of the storm is passing to the south of Crete. We had rain last night and have had a few spots today but nothing worrying.

On the other hand we has a 5.9 magnitude earthquake yesterday and another earthquake this morning so it’s all rock and roll here :-)

If you get local reports of four horsemen seen on the island, you could look at your watch and tell them they're late.
