I'm going to be staying in hotels while in Greece this summer but I'd love to wash my clothes because I don't like carrying a huge suitcase full of clothes. Is it easy to find a laundromat in Greece? Thanks

There are probably some laundromats in Athens, but less in other parts of Greece. Your better bet is getting your clothes dry cleaned

I am about 90% certain there is no such thing in Greece. I've never seen one, and I've certainly never seen one in Athens (where I spend most of my time in Greece)

There’s lots of laundromats in Athens! We found one just three blocks from our hotel, which is only two blocks from the Acropolis Museum. Five Euros for the wash, three Euros for 45 minutes dry (30 minutes is not enough for a medium load). Laundry powder just one Euro. Just look on a map app!

Interesting. 30+ years in Athens and I've never seen one.

Most Greeks will use the bathtub to wash their clothes if they don't have a washing machine.

Ha ha, Hash - I've done this, too. Or simply just use the hotel sink and whatever soap they've given me...

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!

What are some Greek work from home tips?

I’ve been considering being a traveling nomad ever since my company switched to being fully remote. I would love to do this in Greece, but I am a bit skeptical since I have never visited for more than two weeks. Has anyone from abroad started living in Greece during the pandemic? Or do any Greeks have advice on what transitioning my life and work would be like? I live in Australia at the moment but have little to tie me down here. Thank you everyone

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!

Porto Katsiki in Lefkada is one of the best beaches!

Porto Katsiki is definitely one of the best beaches in Lefkada and probably the west coast of Greece. I suggest that you go to the beach pretty early, as the parking gets filled up and it will be difficult to find free parking. I personally like to go to organize beaches, which there are plenty of. You can also find a secluded area of the beach that is open to the public, and you’re able to bring your own towels, umbrellas, and food. Enjoy!
