If you have some medical issues like bee stings, cuts, headaches etc. you will be able to consult with a pharmacist! This is not the case in Canada and I found it super helpful to go to pharmacists while traveling around Greece

This is so true!

I remember back about 10 years ago I needed an inhaler for my asthma while in Greece. We went to the local pharmacy in the middle of the night and it was closed. We rang the bell and the pharmacist woke up (apartment was over the business) and opened up for us and sold me an inhaler no questions asked.

I was floored how great the service was and the pharmacies in Greece can be really great if you have a small thing you need help with. (of course, no substitute for a hospital if you need real medical attention!)

Greece Tackles Animal Abuse With New Pet Ownership Law !

I thought this is the appropriate place to post as it concerns travellers and summer workers too!We used to see so many abandoned cats and lovely dogs which people bring to the island and leave them behind....my dog Bhoo Bhoo found me by herself,we were the best of friends for many years until she got lost as tears come to my eyes!!😢.....The most saddest part was horses back in late 90s....We had a truly passionate and horse loving keeper from South Africa, after nurturing them, training them,I promoted Horse Back Riding Excursions 🐎.... Really enjoyable experiences for me together working with the Animal Welfare and rescue awareness!
