I’ve always hoped to retire to Greece. Not sure if or how that could work now since brexit.

What has Brexit got to do with your retirement. Excuses. Just do it!!

Brexit has made me a third country national and I don’t currently meet the criteria to move there full time. If you’ve got a pile of money to give me or can find me some Greek relatives I’ll be on the first flight the day after I retire.

Laura ignore this person who is sarcastic and disrespectful,I am originally from UK and moved to Greece back in 1994.... Things were very different then,I had reciprocal DHSS and IKA benefits...
Here is the most appropriate way for you to be guided correctly for transition....
Loads of information....
Opinion:Go to visit different parts of Greece to see where you like and meet up with some people.... Different parts have their own clichés...and feel. Bigger islands like Corfu,Crete and Rhodes have more expatriates,I lived and worked in Tourism in Mykonos for many years... Good luck, for sure Greece will welcome you.... just enjoy this magnificent country and Greek food, wine music, culture, hospitality and loads of fun!..... not to mention terrific weather !... Good day from Thailand...
I have friends living in Syros,a very beautiful island who have Airbnb apartment below their villa with magnificent views of Tinos and Mykonos where we lived apart from Mykonos.

Thanks Hash. I will indeed ignore them, I’ve felt welcomed on this site and will continue to enjoy it.
Thank you for the advice. We’ll be looking to make a move in a few years, in whatever form that may be, so we’re saving hard, gathering contacts and information and enjoying our travels in the meantime in the hope of finding our home, but honestly, you could drop me anywhere where I can see the sea and I’d be happy.

You are welcome Laura,
After moving away from cold and miserable good ol'London town which I loved so very much to the seaside island,I couldn't live anywhere else but at the seaside like we do here in Thailand.... Enjoy this website, enjoy your travels to Greece, let us know how you get on or need any further, I am the lead content contributor here, haven't had time to contribute lately as I am helping out in organising and coordinating medical supplies to Eye Hospital in Ukraine...I lived as faraway as possible from any Expatriates with everyone Greek around me! Even here in Thailand we hardly have a handful of them, couldn't be better!!

Thank you. The sun is shining hard on my seaside town this week, I’m just off to the beach for a cold water dip so I can pretend I’m on the islands.
Well done to you for your Ukraine work, it‘s unbearable what these people are going through. I’ve registered to house a refugee which will be a shock to the system, the other half and I have lived by ourselves for over 20 years.

So beautiful, how do you register to do that?

How dare you give me a typical American response that you police other people's opinion and there throughs, remember your thoughts (American) aren't the only ones

There’s several organisations working on arranging placements, but I’ve also registered via the government site as hosts have to be vetted to protect refugees from trafficking etc.

That's great that they're protecting people from trafficking. My family were refugees from Turkey so I am so happy to see Greek people participating in hosting people.

How expensive is it to travel around the Ionian islands by boat?

Chartering a boat to travel around the Greek Islands is something that I've always wanted to do but that I always assumed wasn't feasible. Has anyone done this with a big group and found that it's a little bit cheaper? Are there any packages or any tips that you recommend for going around the island that would make this a little bit cheaper?
