Arillas general information / Re: Mosquito
« Last post by justphil on Today at 07:24:58 PM »
To enjoy Arillas, most of us have to take mozzie precautions. Jen used to be eaten alive, and had about 20 bites lanced and treated by the doctor in 2003. It kept us away for 4 years, until in 2007 we ventured back. The following 10 years saw us there at least 3 weeks, sometimes 4 per year with no bites at all. Our deep seated love of Corfu and Arillas began in earnest then.

She sprays her feet and legs with 50% DEET whenever we go out in the evening, and whenever her legs were potentially at risk. Exposed arms and shoulders too. She has had very few bites since.

Me? Thet HATE me. I have never been bitten, although some other insects have had a free lunch now and then.

Best wishes. Take precautions and enjoy what to us is heaven on earth.

[/gifv]. I have more mosquito bites than the years been coming to Greece!  Festival at Athinas tonight too, not sure if we will make that as will wait for the Arillas 'do' next weekend, Mr b wants to watch the footie.  If anyone plans to go to Afionas taxi is 13 euros each way.  We did a walk yesterday around  the back and top and got soaking wet, but soon dried out after breakfast. Unfortunately heard rain and thunderstorms on way Monday. Still all god tho

Hi Truth - Am hoping to start swimming again soon.  Was always a keen swimmer when I was a copper - you had to be qualified as a life saver when I joined - trunks were not part of the uniform so only sometimes were they navy blue.

I always liked this pair of 'Mark Spitz' being worn on a sand dune in Denmark August 1989 - note my triplets have got some snazzy red trunks.
