Heatwave and another ferry coming ...

What does it mean? Someone asked ...

Its Hot! Hot for June and its the first heatwave of summer. So what do you expect when you hear the magic words? Temperatures like this ...


Thirty degrees during the peak of the day ...

What happens?

You drink a lot, Water and not the stuff out of the tap either (Actually never), only the bottled version. If you drink Beer than you will complain about the price later (Standard)

Being a Brit, and having worried about the weather, for months. Having been reliant on all the apps, FB and the forums. You resort to advice that you know and understand.


That just about covers it, then move on to Mossies, Wasps, Hornets, Snakes ...

Another ferry from Thessaloniki?

Aqua Blue: Thessaloniki - Sporades - Cyclades - Crete

By the end of June it is expected to start another route that will connect Thessaloniki for the quarter with Sporades, Cyclades and Crete, while at the same time, the launching of the ship, which will connect Thessaloniki from June 15 to the Sporades is ready, as the decision may be issued even today, as Undersecretary of Shipping and Island Policy, Nektarios Santorinios said, speaking at the station of the Athenian-Macedonian News Agency, "104.9 FM Agency".

"It's a long-running effort from the ministry," said Mr. Santorinios and, as he said, after the ministry managed to find the money to subsidize the line, he proceeded to the next steps: "About 15 days ago - perhaps and more - we made public the declaration of a connection between Thessaloniki and Sporades, Cyclades and possibility of expansion in Crete ".

"There is interest from some shipping companies and soon offers will be deposited in order to start this link by the end of June," the deputy minister said. "It is a line that we consider necessary and will help Sporades and Cyclades too, because it will connect them to two big markets such as Northern Greece and Crete". Also, according to the deputy minister, it will be an incentive for many of Northern Greece to visit the Cyclades and Crete.

"Around 20 June there will be announcements on the itineraries. The intention is - but is not finalized - to depart from Thessaloniki on Tuesday and Friday, "noted Mr. Santorinios and added:" In total, this boat - because it will catch several ports in the middle - is estimated to reach Crete in approximately 19 hours'.


"In Skiathos, for example, it will be around five to six hours in Syros in 10 hours," he added, while stressing that this route will last until mid-September.
