How to be a happy traveller in Greece

Greece ● 10 June 2017
 

Being a happy traveller is the ultimate goal of each trip. Everybody wants to have a great time during the vacations and to remember these moments with joy and nostalgia. Generally speaking, in order to be a happy traveller, you should be flexible and ready to live new experiences and know better the place you have visited. In Greece, there are some special things and tips you should have in mind because they will help you to have unforgettable vacations.

First of all, feel free to enjoy the Greek hospitality. The Greek hospitality is famous worldwide, and it is only a matter of time until you meet nice people that want to show you the beauty of their place. Be open, and after a while, even if you travel solo, you will feel like being part of a huge company with nice and helpful people.

Furthermore, don't even think about following your diet during your holidays in Greece. The Greek cuisine has amazing dishes and desserts that are delicious, have unique taste, but at the same time, are affordable. Try the weirdest traditional recipes, and be prepared for a culinary experience, which is worth every single kilo you may gain.

Happy traveller

Sea and sun are among the best Greece has to offer to its visitors, but be sure to beware of the sun. Use your sunscreen protection from the morning until the afternoon, wear a hat and visit the archaeological sites before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. to avoid sun- or heat-stroke.

Exploring is the most constructive thing to do in Greece. There are many organised beaches in the Greek islands, but if you decide to hike, walk or take a boat, you will explore many secluded beaches of stunning beauty, small heavens on earth for your eyes only. Additionally, lovely fishing villages, remote chapels and impressive mountains are waiting for you to feel the real adventure.

Last but not least, learn about the history of each place. Greece has an amazingly long and rich history, and literally in every place, you will find significant museums and archaeological sites. It would be a mistake if you don't visit these monuments. The sun, the sea and the beaches are waiting for you, but don't rush. Take your time to be informed about the civilisation that was the cradle of Europe, and you will definitely not regret it!
