“a hike to a castle”.........................about time. After all those castles a couple of weeks ago I was actually getting to like them!........................Then pow! suddenly no pics of castles,nor ye olde hoose. Now we shall have the return of the castles,yippeeee.Yeah pretty much
A german guy from here went to the police station this morning to ask what it is they want us to do because they have been coming here daily and taking one or 2 people to the police station .
The police cheif apparently said that locals who come past here on bikes or walking have been complaining that people camping here are not forced to the same rules as they are
He says they dont mind people staying 3 or 4 days but then to move on even if only a few miles so the locals don't complain , camping off site is forbidden throughout greece but off season they dont care as long as you move on regularly.
Seems mad to me during a lockdown but i suppose i see the locals point of view too if they only allowed essential journey's etc
He said it was highly unlikely to be stopped on the road etc
So i hope thats correct as ive been trying to do what i thought was right but they still not happy
So ill move tomorrow only an hour or so south to a nice bay ive spotted with a hike to a castle ...ill see how it is and stay maybe 2 days then move to next place
I think it helps immensely when they can speak some English and are happy to do so ... unfortunately a lot of french people I'd met in the past didn't or wouldn't and with all the will in the world I can't learn french that quicklyAnd everything with bread ! Made a Chinese stir fry for a friend and he asked what no bread . Next visit I had made cannelloni and put out a basket of bread . He said oh no bread with Italian ! Fickle lot but got to love them . Hope your time with french has improved your thinking of french and France lol They love us Scots
Yeah we were laughing about that the other day as none of the people who had been taken by police were actually fined ...all told that they would get a letter in maybe 3 years to appear before a judge lolGood luck with your move toomorrow. Have a nice night tonight with your friends.
BTW We've just read that Greece has the highest corruption rate in Europe. Perhaps you coud all club ogether and slip them a back hander and they'll go away
Unfortunately or fortunately nobody around me speaks English but it made me learn quick lol After 17 years i actually prefer to speak french lolI think it helps immensely when they can speak some English and are happy to do so ... unfortunately a lot of french people I'd met in the past didn't or wouldn't and with all the will in the world I can't learn french that quickly
Yes to be honest I've been feeling the last few days that i need time to myself which has been difficult as i get invited to eat lunch and dinner with them all every day and often a load of others too as they are incredibly sociable ....i on the other hand can often just need my own space ....i often think im an introverted extrovert ....like i enjoy company for a while but then i need a break to recharge for a bit or it gets overwhelming .... especially if a lot of people at the one time.Won't do any harm that your new found friends get to know that you aren't clingy... that you're not going to stalk their every move, and that you're actually quite happy to travel on your own [well +dogs obviously]
But we need more info about the French lass that has you smitten...
Alas .. solen ...or soul as she prefers to be called doesn't seem overly interested in an auld scottish guy ....but trust me when i say she is very beautiful and like a hippy angel lol ...she has an old merc camper that inside looks like an old gypsy wagon ...but i think shes like mid 20's and wild as they come.Unfortunately or fortunately nobody around me speaks English but it made me learn quick lol After 17 years i actually prefer to speak french lol
Pillow talk they say is the best way to learn so best nurture thé frenchie lol
If she was I'd be in there but I didn't get that impression and i can usually tell if theres a hint of interest that way or just friendly ....20 odd years old, and a free spirit - be still my beating heart... ...
Is she looking for a father figure .
Change of scenery will probably do you all good, you're travellers after all.
Oh trust me i have good instincts and she isn't interested ....i think she's more into renau the didge player .... unfortunately he's taken lol but its obvious by body language she's in to himFollow your instincts, females will always let you know if you have a chance BUT often flirt when the have no interest , it’s often difficult to understand these strange creatures , the best bit of advice I ever got was
( be honest with yourself as you know the answers ) , age is a barrier, language Is an even bigger barrier,
be cool , if anything happens it’s a bonus
Yes its pretty much a shambles everywhereGreat thread keep it going. A couple of observations from your posts. A times we are quick to criticise our own country and rightly so about the pandemic, however your posts are showing there is confusion everywhere with this disease. Germany and its testing comes to mind, now getting moved on in Greece. Strange and confusing times everywhere.
have you got their contact details so you can meet up with them again later if you decide you want to?If she was I'd be in there but I didn't get that impression and i can usually tell if theres a hint of interest that way or just friendly ....
She apparently comes from the part of France i liked too .....the south east Alps area not far from Geneva
It will do me good but i think all the french ....6 or 7 families plan to stay together when they move.
It seems the french way
Cooked chicken bones are pretty dangerous as they splinter... Neighbours dog had to have an emergency operation cos he got a splinter stuck in his gut,,, £2 grand later and the dog was fine but the folk had to sell their car to pay the bill !We never give our dog cooked bones....but I have lost count of the number of times she has raided them out of the bin....with no Ill effects
