Hi Keri & Keri . You may not remember me . I was on the island in 81 and again in 82. I was 17 the first time I arrived on the Island and spent most of my time pretty dam drunk. ( as they said about the 60's if you remember them you wern't there ) . During a particularly poor time i spent some weeks on the floor of the appartment you all shared , I think NIkki talked you all into letting me stay as she felt sorry for me. I returned to the UK in the April of 83 having spent the whole winter on the Island and sorted out my life .I have been married for the last 25 years and have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. My two youngest are 16 & 17 and my eldest daughter 24 , my stepson is 35 . It would be nice to hear from you or anyone else that remembers me and or the island of course which i found spellbinding. If you ever have any contact with Nikki give her my warmest regards as I often think of her and the kindness she showed me. All the best David Ede email@example.com

I live in Greece and met Gail last summer, who was a good friend of Liz, but she is living in the UK now. Have got some photo's of that great time on Spetses (if i can find them) will post them on the site.

We spent our honeymoon on Spetses in early June 1984, it seems a lot of us visited in that year. It's our silver wedding anniversary next year and we are looking to return for a nostalgic look. During our visit we became very friendly with the local Post Master named Andreas - does anyone know of his current whereabouts?

Hello Hans, I spent 5 months on Spetses in 1984 and often had a burger at Mik Maks, Has it changed? I was last there in 1996 and it had changed a lot in that time. A lot noisier, more built up but still lovely. Have a good trip. BTW, great site Lucy

I haven't been to Spetses for 11 years Hans but if you haven't been back since 84 you'll notice some changes. I spent 5 months on "the rock" in 84 and became quite a regular in Mik Maks. Have a great holiday. BTW great site Lucy :-)
