    You should avoid these areas in Greece during demonstrations

    This is a great tip. I have been to Greece during plenty of protests and strikes and as long as you avoid the hot areas it won't even be an issue. I didn't know about some of the hot spots on the list so thanks for sharing!

    The poor turtles! I didn't realize they get trapped in nets. :( Sounds like the fishermen treat them kindly when that happens, though...

    All about Sea Turtles (day) in Greece!🐢🐢 🐢

    The sea turtles in Greece are so special and important to the eco system. Didn't realize they had their own day of recognition! I would love to visit Zakynthos and watch them in action. Have you been?

    How Are You Celebrating Greek Independence Day Today?

    I always found it interesting that March 25th marks the day when the war actually began. Typically, the day that independence was actually achieved is the day that is celebrated. Ζήτω η Ελλάδα!!! Thanks for sharing the historical link. :)

    How good is the wifi at Greek hotels?

    It depends where you go. I've had good experiences, I've had bad ones. I have an unlocked iphone. So, I usually just buy a Greek SIM card to use while in Greece.

    The best travel advice that I can give you

    This is good advice, thank you. Typically, when I travel to Greece, I expect that I can be a bit spontaneous, and I used those third part sites all the time. I haven't been tor Greece since Covid, though, and it makes sense that it is easy to book flights direclty.

    Gather around to make Christopsomo this Christmas! (Greek Christmas bread)

    Koulourakia are a classic Greek winter time cookie

    I know! For me, I actually like to dip my koulourakia in mulled wine! I drink mulled wine during the holidays, spiced with plenty of cinnamon and sweetened with honey, and the cookies are a perfect complement.

    What are some ride share apps that work in Greece?

    I have never used ride share in Greece, and I am not sure that people really do that. I tend to use taxis, public transport, my legs, or rent a car.
