Hello Erika, just want to say a huge thank you for your fabulous web site. You brighten up our days and sometimes cool them down. Thank you thank you. Happy New Year. Sherry

Some times, we dont need  words, just dreams: nice weather, sweet sea & one island not so far... Merry Xmas & Best Wishes 2018!!!  Juan   Kali Xronia!!!!

Thank you for the beautiful photos and commentary throughout the year (and it was good seeing you in October (2017).We appreciate the work both of you do to display the Community to us here in Melbourne. Our best wishes to you both and a safe 2018. We will be on Ithaki early June see you then.  Kind Regards, Gwen & Chris Brickhill Canterbury Melbourne.   PS: Positive news re Ferries well done.

Great to hear about the possibility of the Patras Ferry coming back. Keep us updated. Your ferry troubles have us all troubled these past few years. Good luck and keep up the great work on the home site. T. Saunderson UK

Hi Erica, We've noticed you talk alot about the weather lately. Is there no goss? news?. Shane UK originally from Oz. 

Dear Erika,  Greetings from far-away Australia, I hope you are all doing well.  Your 'October in Ithaca' essay is great, as is all your photo essay work.  Just a minor comment though.  I know it is sometimes difficult, but please try not to publish photos of people with cigarettes in their hands or in their mouth.  It sets a bad example for the younger generations.  Regards Nick Sikiotis

It is a disgrace that the Greek Government does not subsidise the Patra to Ionian Islands route. Obviously the route is not financially viable as a commercial concern otherwise the private line operators would be able to run it. It is unfair to blame the shipping lines.  It always seemed odd that the prices charged seemed way below cost when they were running. A 2 or 3 round trips a week Ionian – Patra frequency would be better than none. The cost should be seen by the Government as investment  an essential service– bringing valuable foreign currency to the Ionian helps the local economies, who now are basically totally dependent on tourism, and in turn it helps the national economy of Greece.

Dear Erica, We have just returned from Ithaca after two wonderful weeks.  We were at Rementzo taverna whenyou were there for lunch.  I was delighted to see you and asked the young woman serving to pass on a message. It was to tell you that your photographs and information keep us going through the winter.  Feels like being part of the Ithaca family.  It`s our 10th visit and we are looking forward to many more.  Keep up the good work. Regards Norma and Alan Frost.

Good Morning Erika, Again we are looking forward to our 9th consecutively to Ithaki in 3 weeks. Thank you and Dmitri (we think), for the magnificent presentation of the Beach Manager. We know Takis well, even though we frequent alternate beaches. Takis spent Summer in Melbourne which we are sure you are aware. We spent time with him taking him around including a visit to see Dennis  Sikiotis at his Nursing Home also caught up with Laki. Thanks for,  (as usual), the News and travel updates you provide, much appreciated. Looking Forward to seeing you both again. Gwen & Chris Brickhill .Melbourne

Hi Erica,  I am still enjoying you website immensely.  My first contribution being Visitors Letters, 2006, Page 6.  Unfortunately, I haven't been back since 2000 but my nieces/nephews and great-nieces/nephews are now making the trip to Kioni.  All of them loving Ithaki but particularly Kioni, the birthplace of their grandfather/great-grandfather.  Luckily we get news of the family - Panayiota (aunt), Ilias (cousin), Mileydis, and the locals - Captain Dion Dellaportas, Jenny (Spavento) from them on their return.  Every time I log onto the site, I recall fond memories of your beautiful island.  Best wishes to all in Kioni.  Thank you Erica for a job well done!  Cheers, Jill Sutcliffe (Moraitis)

Have just seen the photographs of the production of the Murderesses of Papadiamanta and so wish I could have been there! Seeing familiar faces on stage and in the audience, relaxed and without the summer pressure was wonderful. Congratulations to all involved with the performance and I am sure they all had a marvellous time together. As long standing Ithacan fans we are so greatful that each year we are allowed to share your beautiful island for a short time and never cease to be amazed at the warm welcome we receive. Looking forward to our visit to Kioni in September and wishing all islanders health and happiness and a good season. Regards Marie Bush UK
