During the 90's my late husband and myself travelled from Kavala to Thassos by ferry, sadly I cannot remember where we flew into. I know we hired a car from the airport. Every year we would visit different parts of Greece such as Samothraki, Evia, Karpathos, Loutra, Stoupa, Kalymnos and many other islands and parts of the mainland which again I cannot remember.
I have a yearning to revisit Kavala/Thassos again with my partner and I am very cross/upset with myself as I cannot remember how we got to some of these places.
I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to advise me.
We loved Greece and during his funeral we played Greek music and it went down well, the congregation were tapping their feet to the music. Next week we have managed to get a holiday on Kos so at last we can get to see Greece again, also, my partner hasn't been to Kos, I have since losing my husband and other islands.
Thank you in advance.

I did some quick research and found that there is a ferry from Kavala to Thassos:


Kos is an amazing island as well! Have a fantastic time! 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

Its likely that you flew into Thessaloniki or Kavala airport and then took a ferry from Kavala port to Thassos

Either Thessaloniki or Kavala then took a ferry from Karamoti to Thassos . About 2 hours drive from Thessaloniki to Karamoti . Short drive (10 minutes) from Kavala airport to Karamoti. It is a long time since I went but I think about 1.5 hours on the ferry.

Thank you your information is very helpful. I think we flew into Thessaloniki as we stopped a couple of nights on the way to Kavala in an area which I can't recall, but popular with Eastern Europeans. All the best and tha nk you once again.

If you flew from abroad it has to be Thessaloniki. Kavala airport is a small regional airport and to my knowledge you can't fly direct to any European cities . If you flew from Athens it could be either.
It is an easy drive from Thessaloniki, motorway all the way.

Drove from Athens to Volos took ferry to Skopelos, stayed there 4 days, did some spearfishing then back to Volos . Drove from there to Thessaloniki spent 3 days there, then drove to Karamoti then ferry to Thasos for 3 days.
That was about 20 years ago just before Greece changed currency to Euro.
We usually rent a car at Elefterios Venizelos airport, I think it was the first year it opened. We always use the same rental company and the allow the car to be taken on ferries, most will not allow.

That was my only time, went there specifically to do spearfishing in the pristine waters there. Not very touristy back then, Skiathos is better known, all the islands in the Sporades group are nice I believe. We go to Greece very often though.

Did you do spearfishing with an organized group or with friends/family?? Because that sounds like something my sons would love to do

It is not a good idea to spearfish or dive on your own. In that case we were 2 couples but only us guys spearfished. The girls just sunbaked on the beach/rocks and had a swim.
I was a lot younger then, I gave up spearfishing even in Australia years ago. I started spearfishing when I was 10 years old. Now I fish with a rod and line, mostly game fishing.

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!❤️❤️

Did you know that you can see baby turtles being born in Zakynthos?

This is a super rare experience that only exists during a small period of the year in Zakynthos. I cannot seem to find the exact timing of the hatching season, so if anyone knows please let me know. One of the best places that you can find these young turtles is Kalamaki Beach, which also happens to be one of the most popular beaches for swimming in Zakynthos. The beach is a protected conservation area, which is why it is closed at night, so that the turtle eggs can hatch and the turtles can safely make their way into the water.


Check out my recommended travel itinerary for 2 weeks in Greece!

I have decided to share an itinerary that I send to all of my friends who want to go to Greece. I have travelled to quite a few places around the country, and feel like I have a good idea of where everyone should visit on their first trip. Of course, I always recommend a two week minimum one visiting Greece. There's just so many things to do, especially if you like the beaches and sightseeing. Let me know what you think!

1. Land in Athens and stay for 4 days (Acropolis, Monastiraki, Thisseio, Glyfada, Kolonaki, and Lykabitos are a must)
2. Spend 3 days in Paros enjoying the beaches and nightlife (Paros has the best of Santorini and Mykonos without being crowded or expensive)
3. Spend 2 days in another island of your choice that is not in the Cyclades (honorable mentions include Corfu, Lefkada, Skiathos)
4. Spend the remaining 5 days driving through Crete and visiting Chania and Rethymno (Elafonisi Beach is a must)

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
