Nieuwpoort November 2022 & January 2023

Terug naar Grielenland , via Frankrijk, Zwitserland en Italië, Ancona-Igoumenitsa, Griekenland, ; waar we van de Ionische zijde naar de Egeïsche rijden om het Pilion schiereiland te bereiken.

Retour en Grèce, par la France, la Suisse et l'Italie. D'Ancône traversée de l'Adriatique vers la Grèce, puis nous passons de la côte ionienne à l'égéenne, gagnant ainsi la péninsule du Pilion.

in English Back to Greece, by France, Switserland and Italy, Crossing the Adriatic Sea from Ancona to Greece, and reaching from the Ionian coast the Pelion Peninsula on the Aegean side.

Van de winter naar de lente

De l'hiver au printemps

in English From Winter to Spring

 

 

De hevige sneeuwval heeft heel wat schade aangericht in het landschap : in bijna alle olijfgaarden zijn - soms erg zware takken - afgeknakt , en, heel wat electrische kabels zijn afgebroken - gedurende enkele dagen waren er grote stroomonderbrekingen - en telefoon en internetkabels liggen op de grond of hangen tussen de takken die onder het gewicht van de sneeuw de leidingen hebben neergehaald. We gaan even geduld moeten oefenen: hoewel de herstelploegen heel goed doorwerken zal het een week duren vooraleer onze vaste internetverbinding hersteld is ...

Als een van de eerste werken gaan we de kalderimi bij het huis ( het ezelspad ) die rechtstreeks naar het dorp leidt moeten vrijmaken !

Les fortes chutes de neige ont causé beaucoup de dégâts au paysage : dans presque toutes les oliveraies - parfois des branches très lourdes - se sont cassées, et de nombreux câbles électriques ont été rompus - pendant plusieurs jours, il y a eu d'importantes coupures d'électricité - et les câbles téléphoniques et internet sont au sol ou suspendus entre les branches qui sous le poids de la neige ont rompu les fils. Il va falloir nous armer de patience : même si les équipes de dépannage travaillent sans relâche, il nous faudra attendre une semaine avant que notre connexion internet fixe soit rétablie...

Un de nos premiers travaux sera de libérer le kalderimi ( sentier muletier ) qui mène droit au village et passe en bas de la maison !

in English The heavy snowfall caused a lot of damage to the landscape: in almost all the olive groves branches have broken - sometimes very heavy ones - , and many electric cables too - for several days there were major electricity shotages - and a lot of telephone and internet cables are now on the ground or hanging on the branches which under the weight of the snow have broken the wires. We will have to be patient: even if the repair teams are working tirelessly, we will have to wait a week before our fixed internet connection is restored...

One of our first work will be to free the kalderimi ( cobblestone mule path ) which leads straight to the village and passes below the house!

 

     
     
         

 

Wisselvallig maar soms ook al leuk, hoewel fris, lenteweer, aan het werk in de tuin en een dagelijkse wandeling in de latere namiddag.

Météo variable mais parfois agréablement printanier, bien que les températures restent particulièrement fraîches, travaux de jardin et promenade quotidienne en fin d'après-midi.

in English Changeable but sometimes nice, although rather cold, spring weather; working in the garden and a daily walk in the late afternoon.

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

De olijfbomen krijgen hun jaarkijkse snoeibeurt, dit jaar een meer ingrijpende aanpak, waarbij al het dode of afgebroken hout wordt verwijderd.

Les oliviers ont droit à leur taille annuelle, cette année une intervention plus importante afin d'enlever tout le bois mort ou les restes de branches cassées.

in English The olive trees get their annual pruning, this year a deeper cleaning to remove all the dead wood and the broken branches.

 

 

 

Op onze boot is het MASTERVOLT DC verdeel, schakel en zekeringenpaneel aan vervanging toe: er komen twee aparte kleinere PILIPPI STV 106 switch boards in een nieuw houten paneel. Zowel de winches in de kuip als deze op de mast en de ankerlier worden gereinigd en gesmeerd, lichtjes ingevet met Lewmar Marine vet of met machineolie (o.a. de pallen) , naar gelang het onderdeel.

Sur notre bateau, le panneau de distribution-interrupteurs-fusibles MASTERVOLT DC doivent être remplacés : il y aura deux plus ipetits tableaux PILIPPI STV 106 witch board séparés dans un nouveau panneau en bois. Les winchs et treuils du cockpit et ceux du mât, et le guindeau sont nettoyés et lubrifiés, légèrement graissés avec de la graisse Lewmar Marine ou avec de l'huile de machine (les cliquets), selon la pièce.

in English On our boat the MASTERVOLT DC distribution switch and fuse panel needs to be replaced: we will assemble two separate and smaller PILIPPI STV 106 switch boards in a new wooden panel. Both the winches in the cockpit and those on the mast and the windlass are cleaned and lubricated, lightly greased with Lewmar Marine grease or with machine oil (e.g. the pawls), depending on the part.

 

 

 

Geregeld gaan we naar de bootwerf on de boot klaar te maken. Toch aarzelen we om een datum voor de tewater lating vast te leggen, de temperaturen blijven abnormaal laag en het wisselvallige weerpatroon houdt aan : na de winter moet de mooring opnieuw klaar gemaakt worden en gecontroleerd: de lijnen moeten opnieuw bevestigd worden en er komt ook een nieuwe boei.

Nous allons régulièrement au chantier pour préparer le bateau. Néanmoins, nous hésitons à fixer une date de mise à l'eau, les températures restent anormalement basses et la météo capricieuse perdure; le corps mort doit encore être réaménagé et contrôlé après l'hiver: les lignes doivent être fixées ainsi qu' une nouvelle bouée.

in English We regularly go to the boatyard to prepare the boat. Nevertheless, we are hesitant to set a date for the launch, temperatures remain abnormally low and the changeable weather pattern persists : after the winter the mooring must be prepared and checked again: the lines must be fixed and also a new buoy.

The GREEK TAXNUMMER Α.Φ.Μ. [A.F.M.]:

an other - significant ! - experience with the Greek bureaucracy

 

The so-called taxnumber Α. Φ. Μ. [A.F.M.] is a national number (in Belgium the identification number in the National Register of Natural Persons is officially called national register number ) or - in some countries - a social security number. From the age of 18 years all Greeks have the obligation to get a taxnumber

The Α. Φ. Μ. [A.F.M.] consists of 9 digits.

Until a few years ago, a taxsnumber was not required for a non-resident foreigner who was staying in Greece little longer than a short touristic period but not involved by contractual services (e.g. a phone and or internet account ). In matters where a taxnumber was required, for example to obtain a DEKPA before the 1st of January 2017 , it was allowed - and it's still - to fulfil some formalities with the help of a willing Greek friend.

So our Greek friend accompanied us in Volos, first to the Office of the Port Police/Coastguard to fill up the request form, then to the Tax Office in order to pay the tax of 29.35 euro. A temporary and to this matter limited statement for the use of his taxnumber saved us the procedure to obtain a personal taxnumber.

The whole issue of tax discipline and tax collection has, however, led to the fact that a personal taxnumber is more and more required: so for the conclusion of a contract e.g. with an internet and / or mobile/phone provider, when renting a house or apartment, to purchase an insurance, in order to register a vessel under Greek flag or a motor vehicle, and even to pay a fine. In short, in most contractual issues or actions when the Greek administration is directly or indirectly involved.

In 2008 arriving in Greece after our Italian coasts sailings we could get a VODAFONE internet account only by Direct debit of our credit card without having a personal taxnumber but by providing also a cruising statement issued for this purpose by the K&G marina in Corfu. The other phone and internet providers - COSMOTE, WIND - required a private taxnumber.


How it works:

- visiting a local tax office, department Delivery Taxnumbers Α. Φ. Μ. [A.F.M.] with our ID card or passport

- filling up the monolingual-Greek form

- being accompanied by a free choosen Greek representative or submitting a (legalized) certificate containing his identity data; the representative must be registered in the tax area ( e.g. Magnesia ) where the taxnumber is requested ( e.g. Volos ); in fact the representative acts as an known and having his home in Greece contact person for the administration
