That's absolutely true. We love our sunshine, our sea, our blue skies, our outgoing culture.
We also love to accommodate foreign people into our own way of life.
Despite the financial challenges, Greece is still an awesome country. A conglomerate of different land terrains, engulfed by endless beaches, picturesque islands, and the all-encompassing sea. Everything is in proportion with the human size and reach. There is nothing extra-ordinary or out of place, no grand structures or vast areas.
But it's the greek hospitality that makes the defining difference.
Together with our outspoken and friendly nature, whereby we love welcoming strangers into our homes and taking care of them.
And it's also the land of the 1000 small crafts, skills and traditions, which vary immensely as you travel up and down the country. Skilled craftsmen on numerous different disciplines are to be found all over the territory.
THIS is what will actually baptize foreign tourists into the authentic greek way of life.
