The biggest enemy of these beautiful creatures is the Humans!

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?

Unfortunately not!I have seen what happens to be beautiful creatures when they are run over by a boat's propeller last season!...... Here where we live we have Marine preservation area specifically for all different types of big fish including sharks 🦈 and turtles 🐢 which are caught up and trapped in fishing nets.... kept in care to recover from traumas,well fed and released again so off they go. 🐢
Kalley Mera from Thailand and Monsoons beginning!

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

I pray that all of the locals and tourists stop polluting these beautiful islands!! Its hazardous for us and these beautiful creatures
 

Clubs in Athens

I’m in Athens right now and I’m looking for the best nightclubs with a younger crowd to go to. Any suggestions?

Make sure you book in advance! Greece is fully booked this summer!

I can't say this enough! Please make sure that you book way ahead of time for your trip to Greece. I've been looking for hotels and flights, and almost everything is booked. The only air B&Bs and hotels that are left are either extremely expensive or very remote. It seems that people have been at home during Covid, and are feeling to get to Greece. This is a lesson learned for next year. Good luck to everyone!

Milos island is becoming more popular than ever!

I'm not even surprised that Milos is one of the most up and coming Greek islands this summer. So many of my friends are planning on visiting, and I have some cousins who went last year and have nothing but rave reviews. The island is pretty small, and known for its amazing beaches. As you can see in this video, it almost looks like you're on mars. The crowd is a little bit older, and the island is more slow paced and quiet. So I wouldn't recommend it fora younger group looking to go out a lot. Personally, it sounds like a great time to me!

New Tourism campaign!

Similar to my story from the early 90s..... Greece gave me my life back, healed me,rejuvenated me, made me worthy of carrying on and rebuilding my future and the rest is a very long love story♥️♥️.....I think the readers here feel what I contribute and share here!❤️❤️
