I'm fully vaccinated, have a current passport, all ready to go for 3 months (fully paid coz I haven't used up my leave over the past 2 years), just waiting for Australian international borders to open. I'm hoping I can buy tickets late this year or early next year. I can't wait to spend time in Athens again and go and visit some islands. Also planning to fly to Paris for about a week. Hopefully it will become reality and not stay a dream...

I'm fully vaccinated as well and live in AU, partially locked down at the moment.
I'm hoping to travel to Europe next July but I'm not booking flights until very close to the time I will fly out . Even pre Covid I never book far ahead.

Hey Jerry, hope the borders open up so that we in AU can travel to Greece next year. I'm curious about how you book flights. I usually book for the next Greek summer in Nov/Dec the year before (about 6 months before I fly). That's when the offers seem to be best. I usually fly Emirates and it costs me about $2k per return ticket.

I'd be interested to know how you book your tickets so close to the date and how much they cost you.

All the best,
Vangelis

I have no plans as of yet, but I might have a wedding in Greece next summer to go to, so that will be fun. I have never attending a wedding in Greece!

I have been to many weddings in 25 years.... most of them all nighters into the next day and beyond, beautiful church ceremonies....The biggest was with easily over 1000 people, different parts of the evening....Unbelievably energetic celebrations...❤️❤️.. Let us know how you enjoy yourself....I want to post a video but I must ask my Doctor friend before I do this!

How much money do you think Greece made from tourism last year?

If you guessed 27 billion euros you would be right! This is a huge increase from 2020, where Greece only made 15.5 billion euros, which dropped because of covid. in 2019, this number was even greater at 38.2 billion. Tourism is a huge portion of the country GDP and contributes to building the economy greatly. Bravo to the people of Greece!

Use Greek yogurt as a cream for when you are sunburnt!

This is a great Greek travel hack! The next time you get sunburnt in Greece, lather on some full fat Greek yogurt to soothe your skin. The yogurt acts as a moisturizer and also soothes the skin from the burn. You can also buy special creams from natural ingredients at Greek pharmacies for burns, but this is an alternative option for when youre in a pinch. Of course, you can find Greek yogurt at pretty much any pharmacy.

Essential Greek travel tips!

Here are a few key Greek travel tips for this summer that I think you would find helpful

1. Don't throw toilet paper in the toilet
2. You can always find a pharmacy that's open 24 hours, they alternate which ones are open in a specific radius
3. Masks are required on ferries

Check out this stunning port near Piraeus

Right next to Piraeus is Port Alimos which houses smaller sailboats and yachts. The area has a beautiful cafe that overlooks the water called Día Noche where many sea goers stop and lunch before and after their trips. If you’re interested in taking a trip around the mainland or to neighboring islands I highly recommend you get in contact with someone from the port.

Marathonisi Islet is a wonderful place to visit in Zakynthos

I never see people talking about Marathonisi Islet and I don't know why! The islet is right across from Laganas Beach and is not inhabited by any locals. Its simply a beautiful piece of untouched nature that is great for a day trip.
