If you don’t want to sleep together with the mosquitoes then make sure that your tent has a mosquito net or bring one.
If you plan to bring your dog, the first thing you do you don’t bring the dog. But if you are already on the way, the first thing you do when you arrive is to speak with Fanis, the owner of the Kantina. Because his two dogs bark the whole night if another dog is around.
If you wanna come, and you want to know what you should know bevor coming and during the camp, there is the perfect thing for you, right here: The “How to Lesvos Reader”.
Here are a few last hints for those who haven’t yet quite made their mind up about coming (you really should though!). For one, it is important to have in mind that the police usually controls people that arrive by plane and boat. You should think about that when packing your bags…
And if you are not flying to Lesvos directly: Get your ferry ticket now! Space on the ferries to Mytiline is limited, and some people have already been grounded in Athens due to this. So don’t wait! Book your ticket now (after all, we didn’t set up the How to Lesvos site just for fun).
If you have any urgent problems, you can call the camp phone:
++30 694 791 36 22. This telephone number is of course available before and during the camp.
Once you know what date and time you’ll be arriving in Mytilini or at the airport of Lesvos, you can write an email with the date, time and the amount of persons to this address:
arriving.Mytilini (at) googlemail.com. There is transportation to the camp site. There are public buses to the campsite, too. We will publish the timetable. If you cannot catch one of those because you arrive at crazy times, let us know via email.
The main email address is noborder.lesvos.2009 (at) googlemail.com .Please make sure that your question is not already answered on the homepage.
If you have any urgent problems you can call the camp phone: 0030 6947913622. This telephone number is clearly also available during the camp.
When you know at witch date and time you arrive at Mytilini or at the airport of Lesvos, please write an email with the date, time and the amount of persons to this address: arriving.Mytilini (at) googlemail.com . So we can organize buses to bring you to the campingside.
If you want to use your mobile phone, you should buy the sim card from “vodafone cu”.
If you already now which day you want to come to Lesvos, make sure you book your ticket.
Like you know there is always a lot of work to do. We all will need people to translate, doing shifts at the infopoint, helping in the kitchen, taking care of the waste, toiletts and showers.
Some people have started a Wiki where hints about how to get to Lesvos can be gathered. So far, it is only in German, but of course, contributions in any language are most welcome.
