Language is still a major problem
We've been now living in Crete for the last year. We left Britain to enjoy a better lifestyle and a better climate. My wife and myself are over 50 and retired early in the hope of enjoying our lifes before our health deteriorates or we become too set in our ways. January last year we set off with furniture and belongings in an old Mercedes truck and drove to south east Crete where we now live. We have made some good friends locally but the language is still a major problem. Greece is a very popular destination and there are many British people living locally. Some help with the language from the BBC would be very useful.
