Absolutely!!! When we were on a ferry from Athens to Crete, supper was supposed to start at 8PM . When we got in line, there was actually a sign that said they opened at 8PM Greek Time. Guess what? We were NOT let in at 8, we had to wait! I honestly wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it myself!
Ahahaha that’s pretty funny. It can be a stereotype, but it also can be pretty true. There's not a huge sense of urgency in Greece like in many western countries, we do like to enjoy life and take things slow. And when you combine that mindset with low funding or poor infrastructure… yes, many things don't get done on time.
Hey everyone, I just moved to Greece and I'm trying to learn as much Greek as possible. A lot of my friends aren't Greek though, so it's hard to keep up. I am planning on taking a few vacations to the islands in the summer...what are some phrases that I should know and use while traveling?
I've been wanting to visit Greece for so long, but I'm a bit paranoid of traveling since I don't go very often. What's the safest place to visit in Greece? I'm scared of being robbed and stolen from in very touristy areas.
