oh I forgot my wife has mix and match vaccines so she will need 3 more if we ever wish to go to good ol'England again....😂😂.. You can see the funny side....I have been in some horrendous situations in my life time, but this takes the biscuit....Give me Papadopoulos any day and my Mana mu Elllada!❤️❤️....And I love our lives and a beautiful home in Thailand too!.... If any one is ever thinking of coming this way look us up, you will be surprised how hospitable and welcoming we are! Kalley Mera ollus!❤️❤️

It is really unfair for people who are not in Europe or North America. Everyone should have access to vaccines to be healthy and safe. There is so much bad distribution and countries have to fight and bargain for safe vaccines. I wish nothing but health to you and your family. Greetings from Montreal :)

Efgharisto polee, Kalley Mera sas!❤️....Did you know the average true cost of vaccines varies country to country?I had look at the WHO's vaccines pricing and distribution website...The poorer countries have to pay more!? .... Example a few
months ago Uganda would have to around $8 for a shot,the vaccine would cost $2 in USA,UK and Europe,did you see the Global Citizen concert?,it was all about freeing up patented rights of vaccines which the Pharmas are controling.

People shouldn't even have to pay for vaccines in the first place!! They are a human right and for many people are the difference between life and death. Extremely unfair, I am so sad to read this

Another true story,a lovely young girl who used to work part time in my wife's cake shop now lives in Bangkok.... applied online, prepaid for Moderna vaccine.... Not available....... Vaccinated elsewhere in state vaccination center..... still waiting for refund the original payment after 6 months..!And yet I would be glad to pay full price as I can afford it, they refused to accept from me..!😂🙃.
 

Trying to Figure Out Where to Retire in Greece...

I am not quite there yet, but I am looking to retire in Greece - I just am not sure where is the best place to go. My family is originally from various places all over Greece, and I do have family and friends all over the country. However, I am not really tied to a particular location. I was thinking that Athens might be the best location for practical purposes - there's a lot to do, plus here are a lot more "services" there (hospitals, shops, restaurants, etc). However, it might be a little more expensive than other places in Greece? I am also looking at other places, like Peloponnese, Crete, Kefalonia, Zakynthos... What do you guys think?

I have soft spot for sunset photos that involve Greek windmills. I would love to see all your favorite photos, as well!

Researching Expat Communities in Greece

I am considering retiring in Greece and I am trying to figure out where to settle. Someone gave some really great advice in another thread to find where there are strong expat communities. I think this is a great idea! Now, my question is, where are there some great communities? Here is a look at my initial findings. Agree, disagree, have anything to add?

Athens - I suppose this makes sense, since it is the country's biggest city.

Peloponnese - I like the idea of living here, but I am not sure if it is too far away from places.

Corfu - Seems like there are more expats here than other Greek islands? I could be wrong ...

Lounging on Astir Beach Near Athens

Whenever I am in Athens, I break up all the sightseeing and exploring with a good beach day. Astir Beach is one of my favorites. There's plenty of services nearby and it's in Vouliagmeni, which is a nice community on the outskirts of Athens.

Do you guys have a favorite Athens area beach?

I also like other beaches near Athens, but not as much as Astir. My list:

1. Schinisia Beach
2. Cape Sounion Beach
3. Glyfada Beach
