Reis til Mamma Mia-øya
til Skiathos og Skopelos
etter den store kinosuksessen.
to Mamma Mia-island
tourists are going to Skiathos and Skopelos after the big movie success,
- writes a Norwegian net newspaper.
blir litt irritert;
først fordi Tyrkia m.fl. blir regnet som en
destinasjon, mens Hellas deles opp!
Så fordi de skriver i nettavisen akkurat som
om Skiathos og Skopelos er noe nytt.
Gulliver started Skiathos i 1980 og her i 1983. I "de gode
gamle dager" hadde vi 5 fly på det meste, fra Oslo,
Stavanger og Trondheim. Det landet ca 620 nordmenn på Skiathos
hver uke, ofte kom mer enn 50% hit, - mange av dem kommer igjen og
get a bit mad;
first because these
lists present Turkey and more, like one
destination, while Greece are cut up!
Then because that
newspaper writes just like Skiathos and Skopelos is something new
to Norwegians. Gulliver, that I worked for, started Skiathos in
1980 and Skopelos in 1983. When we were at the top we had 5 planes
arriving Skiathos every day, from Oslo, Stavanger and Trondheim.
Often more than 50% came here, and some are still my friends!
I just have to put up
these two mails I got yesterday, 9/10-2008,
terrible that people that loves Skopelos should have problems with
coming and going here!
"Just a short note to
say how concerned I am about getting to Skopelos next year. With the
demise of XL airlines there are currently no flights to Skiathos from
Newcastle and Manchester is only showing 2 week holidays. The price
for a 3 week flight is nearly £600.This was £325 this year. Unless
another airline takes up the XL slots from the other airports I can
see a big drop in trade for Skopelos. You can of course go via Athens
but this is much more of a trip and costly with busses and ferry costs
added in from Agios Constantinos. Skopelos and Skiathos need to be
lobbying the charter airlines now to take up the Skiathos flights,
especially the Northern British flights. There are currently no
flights from Scotland so Newcastle was the nearest and therefore the
cheapest option for us North of the English border.
Hope you can help.
"Hi, Bravo for this
page, I will send e-mails.
We just coming back from Skopelos and we have really problems to
ferry, leaving the island in time to get the ferry boat in Igoumenitsa.
Every day they say: I do not know, come tomorrow -the know nothing,
what about the plans on gtp? This year it was complete chaos with the
ships, really bad.
My tipp for a good meal, come to Astarti in Glossa, where Theresa the
Switzerland lady is. The new cook Tom is excellent, he make us
bakaliaro from the grill wonderful!
I like your pages very much, thank you, I enjoy also your video.
Greetings yours GT"
gresk sang her, fordi jeg ikke kunne motstå denne,
for jeg seiler når du leser dette, - håper jeg!
Not a Greek song today,
I could not resist this one,
because also I am sailing when you read this, - I hope!
