Greece is an amazing country, with a unique character which is a blend of 5,000 years of non-stop historic presence. Its landscape is extremely diverse: sea, sun, mountains, villages, islands, forests, rivers, all within proportion.
Greeks are very friendly, hospitable and sincere.
HOWEVER, you can’t help getting the goose bumps when you start planning your trip, with questions like: is it safe, what’s the locals’ attitude, what do I do with money, what is traffic like etc
So make sure you do your research in advance, ask other travelers who have actually been there, visit online Forums and travel websites, ask your local travel agent etc. All these, will hopefully, address some of these concerns.
BUT don’t forget: if in need locally, you absolutely require a knowledgeable local Greek to help you out. Locals love foreigners who have a pleasant mentality and predisposition. Despite the financial challenges that the country has been facing, Greeks still remain loving and accommodating individuals. Try to become part of the locals’ day to day life, and they will be more than happy to welcome you into their own world, with a broad smile on their face.
That’s what you get when you JOIN the Greek Travel Angels : thousands of locals, eager to accommodate you.
