Videos like these were super helpful for when I was first traveling to Greece. I have a major fear of offending people without knowing it and getting super embarrassed

It really does enhance your experience in Greece if you know even a little bit of the language. :) Thanks for sharing this video! The items are all true, and it is so easy to make a faux pas.

I used to do my presentations in Greek language to the Hoteliers who couldn't understand English language!... Sometimes difficult to communicate with Front Desk team, so very useful to combine English language with little Ellinika!👍
 

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

Greece is the word for summer holidays.

Taking a cruise around the Greek islands is a great idea if you have kids!

I always recommend cruises for families because they are generally pretty safe and there are a lot of activities for families to do on board. It’s a great place to grab a drink with your spouse and supervise the young ones on the pool deck. They will always here a life guard which is not the case for many public beaches in Greece. If you have teens, there tend to be many teen groups that offer excursions during the stops so they are able to make friends with other cruise ship members. I highly recommend it!

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)

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!
