All sorted for next June. Nice little Villa near Loggos with pool. Had a look whilst there. Lovely. 
So now looking forward to a 3.30am ish breakfast at Gatwick.  I really do!!
As we are now old and will be approaching our 70th in 2017 we thought we would probably only take Roxi V out for 5 days next year then go water ski-ing and sailing for a couple of days!

P.S. 
Just back from Devon for the second time this year with our Elddis 574 caravan. Now off to Norfolk again for a week then maybe another week somewhere before Xmas.

Are you flying with EasyJet again Malcy, or back to a package?

We just got our outbound flights, arriving on Paxos on 17th June. Will we miss you again?
I wasn't lost - I was just taking an interesting detour!

Hi Elaine
We are on Paxos 5th, off home on 19th June.

We might be able to meet at last!

Panicking now. Have not looked to book E Jet yet.

Give it a few days to check easyJet flights as they were only released a few days ago and with all the initial hits the prices would be high. Once it has calmed down a little they should drop.

Malcy - cross-over at last!   If our first night goes according to previous years (which I have no doubt that it will!) we'll be in Christos's Europe Bar from about 8.30 and then on to Tolis' Grill for our first Paxos meal. Second night is usually saying hello to Spiros at Taxidhi bar, followed by getting re-acquainted with Dina at Nassos. After that, we play it by ear as to where we go, but those are absolute musts for our first two nights

Good advice from Elliemay about flights. Also, once you've booked it's well worth keeping a look out for the EasyJet sale early next year, because if the prices are lower than you paid they give you a voucher for the difference. This year's sale price was less than we paid within minutes of the flights being released! It was only a couple of quid, so it wasn't worth us claiming for, but if you've missed the opening prices it could be a decent sum towards next year's holiday - or even a weekend break without the caravan
I wasn't lost - I was just taking an interesting detour!

Elaine -  We would normally be at the girly's O'Gios from 8.00ish then outside Roxi Bar.
I'm sure we could bump into each other

So - Elaine and Elliemay
Easyjet flight we would book out of Gatwick is 05.55 on 5th June returning 11.36 on 19th.
£229.00 each at the moment.
Should l go for it now to be safe?

Sorry Malcy, only just seen your post. Did you book? Just a thought, but if you haven't already booked and your accommodation provider is flexible on days, I think flying there and back on a Tuesday instead of a Monday could save you quite a bit. We're waiting for the July flights to come out before deciding whether to come home on Friday night or Saturday lunchtime because if the June prices are anything to go by, coming back Friday would save us at least £100 on the fares and as we'd have to catch the early morning hydrofoil to get the Saturday flight, losing Friday night wouldn't be too much of a hardship.

Thanks Elaine. We have booked our Little Villa to fit in with other bookings. Popular Little Gem that we found this year.
We only have the choice of Easyjet or Thomson to give us a comfortable break for lunch (to the right as you face the sea) First Mythos!! Then Ileda.
I'm inclined to book now so we have a flight confirmed.

Glad you managed to change your day Malcy. As well as the price saving I think you might find the airport a bit calmer on a Tuesday than a Monday!

Ever since EasyJet started flying from Manchester we've varied our outgoing flight depending on how long we wanted to stay in Corfu pre-Paxos, but have always flown home on a Monday - for no other reason than because that's what we've always done! Next year we'll either go home Friday night or Saturday afternoon, depending on the price difference, so it will be interesting to see whether there's a difference in how crowded the departures area is on those days.

I don't know why I keep thinking we have traveled on Mondays. It's been Fridays!
I thought Monday for next year. Should have realised how busy it would be after seeing the number of hire cars lined up at the New Port when we floated by.

Norfolk with the new van in April then North Devon in May and wherever we like in between.

Then Villa *** in June.

As we are old and only have sex once a week now we may only have Roxi V for 5 days this year.

Tina
I'm afraid you are right. Too much wine on a Saturday and Sunday night. Nothing during the week but you wouldn't believe that.
I've posted too much c**p.
New caravan will be ours early March. 
We will be back on Paxos at Villa *****in June and out on Roxi V as usual.
70 years old this year so will retire properly soon.
Will not post any more. xxx
