I just discovered this very cute and family oriented Greek tv sitcom called "Remember When" or "Ta Kalitera Mas Xronia" (our best years). The show follows a family from the perspective of a young boy and shows the trials and tribulations of a Greek family in the late 60's. The show touches on many important issues such as religion, finances and relationships. It's a great insight into what was going on in Greece at the time. You can watch the show for free here: https://www.ertflix.gr/en/series/ser.127653-ta-kalytera-mas-chronia

This is so great! I like to watch Greek programs to help learn Greek a little better, but it's hard to find resources online.

This is my favourite Greek TV Series. I like how you get to see how they lived in Athens in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Also, the way they introduce historical events with actual TV reels through the black & white TV that the family owns is very clever. The third series is soon to be released and I'm eagerly awaiting the new episodes!

No, I saw an ad for it on Greek TV but I don't know when it is going to be released. I think the most likely will be after Greeks come back from their holidays. Probably Sep/Oct.

Yes, most Greek tv shows are on break in the summer, especially August and you will see mostly reruns playing on TV

These are the most common words in Greek

This list is extremely helpful for anyone visiting Greece. Learning a bit of Greek can be a little intimidating, especially since some of the sounds don't exist in other languages. I suggest that you at least learn a few words to get by, since it is also a kind gesture when visiting a foreign country. Let me know if you like this video! And if you think these words are easy to learn!

These are the most helpful Greek phrases!

Most Greek people, especially those in the tourist industry speak English so you don't really need to know a lot of Greek when travelling but I do recommend a few phrases. This video shows you the basics! Take some time to practice the pronunciation and you should be all set :) safe travels!

How to save money at your Greek wedding

Greek weddings can get pretty pricey, especially if you have a lot of guests and you're planning on getting married in the peak summer season. The best thing you can do is start planning your wedding early, so that you have time to shop around and see which vendors and venues will be the cheapest. Your wedding dress and suit will definitely be much cheaper if you buy it from Greece, so I do suggest that you get it there if you're able to get it done in time for the wedding. Outdoor venues also tend to be a lot cheaper indoor ballrooms. My last tip of advice, it's going to the destination that isn't so popular. If you want to get married in Santorini or Mykonos, your budget is definitely going to be much bigger in comparison to the mainland or Crete for example. Let me know if you have any more tips and if this helps!

Check out this basic Greek etiquette video

I'm not sure if I agree with all the points that have been made in the video, but I do think that Greeks have a very specific culture and etiquette amongst themselves that is not really known to outsiders. I've been to Greece a few times, and my understanding of the culture is pretty good. What I have noticed is that Greeks can be extremely hospitable, but I have happened upon some rude people as well. For the most part, it really depends on the person.
