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.

World Travel Awards 2022: Greek Tourism clinches global distinctions

Very proud about this!❤️❤️👏👏!

Archaeological Sites to Visit in Greece?

I am making a list of Archaeological museums to visit in Greece so that I can start visiting some of them. In my research, it occurred to me that many of the good ones are associated with archaeological sites. I realized I should visit those, as well. Here is a list of some top places I know I should visit. Please let me know if I missed anything:

- Delphi - is there a museum here?
- Olympia (for the site of the Olympic Games)
- Knossos Palace - and from what I understand the Heraklion Archaeological Museum houses a lot of the artifacts.
- Acropolis/ Parthenon - I have been here before, but the museum that is on site wasn't there at the time - and I figure I may as well visit again.
- Marathon - is there anything here? I know there's a lot of history
- Delos - I have seen pictures - it looks fascinating

I feel like I am missing a lot, but maybe this is a good start at least.

Best places to visit on mainland Greece?

I know, the islands are a popular choice. I've been to the islands so many times, but I have seen very little of the mainland. I have been to Athens and the surrounding area, but that's about it. Do you guys have any recommendations for me? I am interested in seeing Corinth, the Peloponnese, the main archaeological sites like Delphi and Olympia and maybe Marathon. Is there anything else I should consider?

Best Bars with Views in Mykonos

In one of my other posts here I asked where a picture I found was taken and it is possible it was taken at the Oniro Sunset Bar. That got me thinking ... what are the best bars in Mykonos with. view?

Besides Oniro, I found some other possibilities

- Orizontes Roof Garden
- Sky Bar
- Air Lounge Roof Bar

I have never been to any of these but they intrigue me. I found out about them online. What do you guys thing?

Athens car rental question

If I rent a car in Athens, do you think that I would be able to put it on a ferry to go to another island, like Crete?

My next trip to Greece is going to include visiting a bunch of people in Athens, not all of whom are in convenient locations to the metro, and then head to Crete. I like to have a car on Crete because I want to explore. I don't want to have to rent a car in two different places. Any suggestions?
