When we made the trip Patras to Ancona via the Superfast it left

count time for boarding (including passport checks) and getting
onshore at Ancona.


Yes, well that's less than 24 hours which is why I said "less than a day". Of
course you can also go from Igoumenitsa which is about 4 hours less.

Isn't that the website that tries to forward to and synchronize with
travel groups on Usenet (also known as stealing content from
Newsgroups), but never succeeds?

This thread - on that website - appears to have just a fraction of the
replies that have been offered here. No wonder, that OP doesn't get
back and enjoy this nice conversation.

But could also be considered as "the best part of two days" especially if
you include waiting/loading time.

thank you for your replies!

Say we arrive in Italy (which is the easiest part for us Greeks) - we
would like very much suggestions for stops and things not to miss!

thank you again!

There is a similar one tapping into uk.rec.sailing. The owner of the forum
explained how he deleted/censors some posts. He managed to delete the two of the
best answers to a question posted by one of his forum subscribers.


It ****es me off. Last time I checked I appear, like most
regulars on usenet, on about 40 travel, diabetes and other
web-sites with "forums" like that.

http://tinyurl.com/bhwqrb

I also appear on some sites that seem totally unrelated to
my two major areas of interest. Google yourselves, using
your nick or sig or something that appears in most posts you
make. You may get a shock.

Of course complaining is pointless, but I tried to by
joining Travel.com just now and posting in this thread.

Unfortunately, it must be approved by a moderator, so it
won't appear via that site. At least the moderator will
know.

Maybe he'll post it to spite me:-)

And what about your original mad idea of driving to Andalucia and back in 10
days? Now you're asking about things to see in Italy, and you are Greek?

Please pull the other one - it has bells on!

Not really. Patras to Brindisi is overnight, and to Ancona is less than

10/15 days would be enough to visit Greece and maybe a part of Italy or
Croatia.

I long ago gave up caring what they do in general but it does seem
ridiculous to
forward questions to real newsgroups and then censor the answers so that
the
original poster doesn't see them. If I see a question that originates from
one
of these forums, I ignore it.

The truth is that we have no idea at all what a trip like that means!
That's why we are searching for ideas and suggestions - maybe such a
trip requires 20 or 30 days, we'll have to find out!
Yes, we Greeks are not so organised, but we are trying!
Goodmorning from Athens everyone!
