LOL this is a good and funny question to ask! :)

My answer is pure speculation based on years of going to Greece (and hearing family/friends stories, etc), could be a combination of the following:

- Wanting to build on a plot of land and not wanting to pay taxes.
- Running out of funding during construction process.
- Fire or another natural disaster and waiting for insurance company to repair.
- Waiting for building permits to get approved.

Again, these are some thoughts and ideas as to why buildings might not be fully built in Greece.🇬🇷

The most common is running out of funds but they know when they start they don't have enough funds to complete. They start the project and continue until they run out in the hope they will have the funds to finish some time in the future .
Building insurance is not very common in Greece like it is in your country, it does exist but only a very small % have some cover . The same with comprehensive motor car insurance but a bigger % have it.

Yes this is true and the majority of the reason you'll see so many half built buildings. Also many people take out loans and then run into more money issues down the line. In general, there isn't a lot of financial planning and thinking ahead on Greece, people are trying to make a quick buck
 

European Travelling Rules Confusing and conflicting!

PM to Bloomberg: Greece had a very good tourist season in 2021.

An offer not to miss.... Galileo was always docked at Mykonos, She is one of the beautiful Yachts I have seen....Had I been there I would most certainly take up this offer....At this of the year one can negotiate too!👌❤️

Greek Economy:This is phenomenal growth!

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!
