Greece: Essential Travel Tips

The first tip I have to give you about Greece is to ignore all of the negative headlines that have appeared in the news over the last six months. A lot of people don’t realise that the newspapers and television channels have to sensationalise things to del papers and get viewers. Yes, people might be unhappy with their government and are speaking up for their rights, but they do not have any issue at all with tourists, in fact tourists have never been so welcome. The people in Greece are so friendly, so welcoming and so warm that you won’t even know that there are any problems in the country at all. I recommend one hundred percent that we all try to visit Greece very soon, especially if there economy is not doing so well – why not help out the tourism industry and have one of the best holidays ever?

Once you have booked your holiday to one of Europe’s best destinations it is time to start thinking about what to expect and how to make the most of your holiday. Here are two amazing tips that will help you after you arrive in Greece.

Only ask once

We have grown up being taught that we should always seek a second opinion so we get the right answer for any question or issue that we have. Well, in Greece it is not always the best idea, that is unless you enjoy waiting for a while for an answer. Remember that Greece is where democracy was born, so if you try to ask more than one person for directions or advice you will soon see a debate taking place. This is because people are so friendly and helpful, they will debate on the street about the best way for you to get to your destination or the right advice that you need. If you don’t want to get confused then my advice is to just ask one person and hope that their advice is sounds advice!

Put yourself out there

Greeks are famously very family orientated and will focus mainly on talking to their family when they are out in public and may not easily strike up a conversation with you. I can tell you that once you strike up a conversation you will be talking for hours and hours! So don’t be shy, put yourself out there and be the one to break the ice! As I keep saying, Greek people are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet so you should try your best to chat to them. It’s always a good idea to learn a few basic phrases, this will bring a broad smile from even the grumpiest old man.
