We really want to go to Thailand, but sadly, every holiday we're look at they're looking at £600 plus insurance because of my condition and the fact I'm on the chemo. 2016 it'll go right down though.

Have you/the Mackem seductress got a vehicle?

Told you man, have a holiday in Britain this year, take it as an opportunity to see somewhere you've never been on our own islands.

Cornwall, Wales, Scotland,Peak District all amazing places.

having just re-read that article, it's hard not to see it as parody piece. it's like someone at the DM has thought, how can we out daily-mail ourselves?

 

"Straggly migrants straight from the boats have been marching through the town with backpacks"

 

"Anne Servante, a nurse from Manchester, had come to Kos expecting a relaxing break with her husband Tony, a retired plumber.

Instead her summer break has turned into a nightmare as penniless migrants who are in Greece to claim asylum sit outside their restaurant and watch them"

 

'It’s awkward. I’m not going to sit in a restaurant with people watching you’: Anne and Tony Servante, from Manchester, say they won't be coming back next year

Poor people, having their holiday spoiled by desperate, starving migrants.

If by dissimilar you mean very similar then I agree

 

 

 

 

Well the architecture is similar, yes. Same applies to all the Cyclades though really. Santorini is canny different to Mykonos apart from that though. Even in terms of appearance. The former is built on the spectacular remains of a ancient volcano. The caldera edge faces west so you get amazing sunsets all along it and all the settlements on the west side of the island look over steep cliffs which isn't the case with Mykonos. You also said they were basically the same (without alluding specifically to the appearance) which is also incorrect given Mykonos is world famous for its party scene whereas Santorini is a much more laid back, couples and families type of place.

but apart from all that, they're identical.

The pictures were in response to your comment that they don't look alike. Mykonos is only a party Island in the summer, out of season it's all old folks and couples. We can disagree, it's allowed

Is it safe to go to Greece?...These apartments look really cheap.

 

Some of my family are in Lindos and apparently nothing has changed for anyone there, even taking card payments. The smaller islands won't feel the repercussions till at least the winter months due to the shear amount of tourism in the summer. So it is still very much party time.
