Thanks for posting re your experience on the metro. Whatever comments were made on the other forum, I think this new posting is very helpful & relevant to people who may be travelling to Kef via Athens in the future.

My husband was caught out in Lisbon but thankfully 'only' lost E50.00 - no cards or passports were taken. It certainly taught us a lesson!

I have to say that the TA forum for Kef is by far the most welcoming, friendly & non-judgemental compared to some others. Probably indicates the type of people who visit Kef!!

Will look forward to reading your Christmas trip report. Hope you all enjoyed your first Christmas in Kef.

Hi Birds29. Thanks for your note and it is really interesting how many messages I have received from Athens TA users to apologise for the early remarks and to say how relevant my submission is...interesting!

Your experience was a sad comment on Athens, but a useful warning to others. I am glad that you were able to avoid having anything stolen. Ignore the "experts" - as someone once said the definition of an expert - "X" an unknown quantity and "spurt" a drip under pressure!

Now I will read your holiday report.
