So frustrating...
Just read this,I have just had my Pfizer vaccines which are donated by USA to THAILAND, UK (As I have a UK passport) does not recognise ANY VACCINES ADMINISTERED IN THAILAND......And if one wishes to travel as my wife said that a friend of hers sent her daughter to University there,she had to be revaccinated again and stay in Quarantine for 10 days at their own expense...😭🙃I....And I am writing this on my hammock here watching the rainfall....Do we need this stresses in our lives?..
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..!😂🙃.
 

Where to go - Santorini Vs. Mykonos?

I am trying to plan a trip to Greece. I do have some time because it won't be happening this year. I realized that I won't really have time to visit both Santorini and Mykonos, but I am also having a very difficult time trying to figure out which to visit. A big pro of Mykonos is that I love nightclubs. I think it would be fun to experience the nightlife there. However, I am completely captivated by Santorini and how charming it looks, and I am not sure if I even need nightlife on this trip... I don't know, I just want to hear your thoughts. It might help me make a decision!

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 ...

Good Wedding Destinations in Greece?

I am not Greek, but I love the country. I am looking at it as a potential wedding destination. Does anyone have any advice? I have no idea where to start. Someone said to find a wedding planner in Greece. Also, I am not 100% sure on the destination but I have narrowed it down to the following places:

1. Milos
2. Crete
3. Santorini
4. Mykonos

Any advice that you have for me would be great. I am excited for this chapter in my life, but I have no idea where to start. I would think that I need to find a destination before I hire a wedding coordinator?

Share Your Greek Sunset Photos!

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

Making My Greek Travel Bucket List

I had a typical Greek-Australian upbringing in that my family came from Greece but trips back and forth growing up amounted to visiting friends and family. I really haven't seen much of the country and all that it has to offer. As an adult, I want to start visiting some of the places in Greece I really should see, but haven't had a chance. So, here's my list. What do you think I should add to it?

1. Visit the Parthenon - would you believe I've never really explored it? Usually we fly into Athens and then quickly move on to our destination.
2. Santorini - Again, I've never been. I want to go and see what all the fuss is about.
3. Kefalonia - I love hiking, and I heard this is a great island to explore nature?
4. Meteora - I've seen photos - it looks phenomenal and worth the trip.
5. Hydra - the fact that they don't allow cars here intrigues me - I know it's a day trip from Athens, but maybe it would be worth staying?

Any advice you give can help me plan a bit of a touristy trip to Greece. :) I do still have family and friends to visit, but I want to carve out some time to actually explore some places I have never been.
