I'm thinking of working from home and extending my stay in Greece...but I'm not too sure. Have any of you worked from home abroad? What advice do you have? And how can I get high speed reliable wifi? I'm worried that hotels will have bad wifi and I don't want to depend on it

Why Greece, and how long will you be there?I wouldn't recommend working from home in Greece unless you have a house there or you can stay with family. The thing is that Greece is a great place to visit for vacation but it's not a great place to live. Many people think Greece is great because they fall in love with the vacation. If you're going to be working from home for am extended period then you won't be there for vacation, you will be living there.

The best place for internet will be at an internet cafe.

You can also buy an internet USB port (I'm not sure exactly what its called) from any phone store like Vodafone

When I was in Greece last in 2019, I worked full time on my iphone and used the Verizon Wireless international data plan (yes it was expensive!) but very reliable and worked so well everywhere I was in mainland Greece and the Greek islands.

True. You could definitely go to vodafone, cosmote, or one of the other stores.

I've done it. It's doable but a bit challenging at times. Internet isn't as reliable, but it is doable. It's easier if you're in a city as opposed to a village.

Paros is Santorinis cheaper cousin!

In my opinion, Paros offers everything that Santorini does but it's so much more affordable and not full of tourists. I highly recommend that you visit and enjoy the stunning blue and white architecture and relaxing beaches. Here are some of the sites that you should visit in Paros

- Naoussa
- Kolymbithres Beach
- Parikia
- Lageri Beach

What do you think of these essential Greek travel tips?

I would love to know what everyone thinks of these Greek travel tips, and if they are actually true and helpful. I feel like many people have so many biases about different countries, and they can have a completely different perspective from a local or the actual truth. Please let me know what your opinions are in the comments!


Where to travel in Greece if you love wine!

If you love wine, Greece is some of the best places to go to! There are great wines all over Greece, but certain areas are revered for their high quality grapes and crisp wines. Some of my personal favorites are Santorini wines. For Santorini, I specifically recommend Assyrtiko which is the white wine that is produced most from Santorini. The second best place to go to Greece for wine is Thrace which is best if you like red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon which is also popular in regions from across the world. I know Crete is also popular, but I have never been so I cannot comment on their wines!

What are some Greek work from home tips?

I’ve been considering being a traveling nomad ever since my company switched to being fully remote. I would love to do this in Greece, but I am a bit skeptical since I have never visited for more than two weeks. Has anyone from abroad started living in Greece during the pandemic? Or do any Greeks have advice on what transitioning my life and work would be like? I live in Australia at the moment but have little to tie me down here. Thank you everyone
