We are stranded in Ayvalik, Turkey. We were supposed to take a ferry to Lesvos today at 18:00 but a general port/ferry strike stopped us. I can't seem to find out when it will end. Is there a website we can go to for up to the minute details?
Dawn, it's supposedly a 24 hour strike, finishes at midnight.
There is an excellent website which updates travellers on all sorts of disruptions etc. It's a bit hard to navigate, scroll down for Greece.
But what it says is this:
Greek general strike Tues/Wed June 28 and 29
Update:-28 June for Ferries. Piraeus port authorities recommend to ask for information before reaching Piraeus, tel. nr ( ++30) 210-4226000 or 210-4147800.Greek Seamen Federation(PNO) will strike for 24 hours a “warning” strike of all seamen in all ports of Attica area (around Athens included, Piraeus, Lavrio, Rafina etc) from 00.01 till 24.00,Thursday 30 June 2011.
