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.

Traveling to Greece During Christmas

Has anyone here visited Greece for Christmas? I have only ever gone to Greece during the warmer months!

Specifically, I am trying to figure out if this is something I want to experience some day. I really want to learn about he real culture of Greece. I know, I have my traditions that have been passed down, but unless I go to Greece at Christmas someday, I am not sure I will ever truly understand.

Are things closed in Greece for December because of the holiday and will I have trouble as a visitor? I do have friends I can visit and maybe even stay with. It might be more fun that way.

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?
