You're invited to a gathering in Oia, Santorini on May 17

Let's meet at Laokasti Restaurant at 7pm on May 17 to celebrate Greece. Laokasti is located on the main road across from the Church of St. George, about 250 meters past the Perivolas Market as you enter Oia. If you see the Restaurant Alikona you've gone too far. I hope to see you there!

I would love to come, Greece is one of our favourite destinations in the world but we are living back in Australia now and it's just too far to come for dinner

Have a great time
Kay

OK that's 3 Lotto draws - there is still a 7 million to 1 chance I can make it.

I attended brotherleelove's gathering two years ago, and had a great time. It was wonderful to match screen names with faces, and chat about our experiences in Greece. Several of us tweaked our itineraries so we could be there on the night. As Lee already knows, I can't be there this time, but highly recommend it to anyone who can.

What a great invitation! I'd love to come but can't, I have the same dilemma as KayF - it's too far from Australia to plan this quickly. Hope you have a great time!

Hi Brotherleelove2004,
I have seen your name quite a few times and have a feeling you know quite a bit about Santorini...I'm trying to get information to plan a trip there. Is there a direct email to reach you regarding travel there? I'm looking to go in August (23), stay for three or four days and then fly or get to Rome but I don't know the best method to get to Rome. We only have 3 weeks and plan to get married in Santorini. Sorry to bother you with all these questions (I do have more) but I saw your name in the Fodor's books, and figured you were an expert in the area.
My email is [email protected]. Please send me yours (if you don't mind). Thanks so much in advance for any information you can provide.

More items I'd love to know:
I need hotel recommendations- my budget is about 211 euros per night. My fiance and I are planning to elope in Santorini...
and the best/most efficient/affordable way to get to Rome.

Thanks, again!!!!

Hi there, we see your name pop up all the time with great advice!
We are from New Zealand coming to Greece and Turkey in Sep 2013 . We want to fly from Rome and visit Mykonos, Santorini, then go to Turkey. We want to go down, or up the west coast, visiting Istanbul, Gallipoli, and down to Fethiye.
Rather than backtrack to Istanbul to fly out, van we go South to North ? Is that feasible, and what would be the logical itinerary .
Any help much appreciated, ..
Regards
David

Lest anyone think the gathering is in May 2013, this post was for 2011. Perhaps Lee will have another gathering next year, though. ;-)

That is funny Heimdall. When this post popped up, I thought it was familiar.
Brotherleelove - will you be on Santorini at the end of June? We'll be on our way to Crete, then back to Paros. Maybe Heimdall will be in Antiparos? Looking forward to summer 2013!

I haven't figured out yet if I'll be going next year, but if I do I probably won't be hosting another gathering. The one in 2011 was a big disappointment. Only 5 people showed up. I'm sure the restaurant lost money that night since they prepared extra food for my "promised" guests.

That's sad to hear, Lee. The previous gathering (was it in 2009?) was great fun, and well attended.

Hi Parosblue,

I'm hoping to visit my family back in the States next June, so won't be on Antiparos at that time. Tentative plans are to go in September, and spend some time on the mainland as well.

Heimdall

In that case the gathering could be organized in Athens

Heimdall -
We'll be vacating the states, so they'll be room for you.
One of these days, I'll retire and we'll be able to experience September and May.
Sorry we can't invite you to join us for on ouzo or kokino krasi on Main St.)
