The Blue Star Naxos ferry ...

Has arrived in the Sporades ...

It's our inter-island and mainland transport for the next few weeks ...


Very nice it is too ...

Gordon the Gecko 🦎 ...

We have spent the summer together, however, two days running, I have found him in the sink. Only this time he has had a bath. Thankfully not a hot one ...


So today I have taken him outside for a happier life, rather than spending it here with me. Strangely he did not seem too keen, on being on the outside world ...

Ray Morris - Round the island swim ...




Ray's wife Jacqui posted this update a few minutes ago ...

Due to the strong winds, the support team suffered with sea sickness, and problems with the support boat. Stopping short of the planned end point of Ligaries.

Duty-Free?

Subject to approval by the UK supreme court next week, and ongoing negotiations (or not) ...

This appeared on my twitter feed ...


Can't help but think they posted this a bit early, but it should put an end to the endless enquiries, about 'can I buy cigarettes at the airport' ...

'People travelling back from the EU will still be able to bring back unlimited amounts for their own use, if they pay duty in Europe'

It's a very interesting statement, you can read about it in full here  if the heart desires ...
