I can’t wait to explore Greece (officially titled the Hellenic Republic or Ελληνική Δημοκρατία)! There are so many things to do and see! Is there anything people recommend? We have received a lot of advice and would love some more!
We were told to fly into Athens and explore the historic sites before heading next to Delphi or Olympia and then go to the other. After that, we were told it would be best to check out Santorini (even though it will be packed, the sunsets in Io are supposed to be a must) or Mikonos before going to a less populated island, such as Folegandros (Agkali Bay) or Sifnos (Vathi Beach). The Margarita Blue Sand Hotel has come up a couple of times.
There are so many fun facts floating around about Greece, not only of historical relevance, but for modern day purposes as well! Greece, the home of the loggerhead turtle and over 4,000 traditional dances! I don’t know how true the later is, but it sounds amazing! It’s also illegal not to vote! So many little tidbits to learn. Is it true that it’s an insult to wave with an open palm?
I would love to learn about the different neighborhoods and where would be nice to stay for cultural submersion. Jumping into the fray always sounds like a wonderful idea to learn the most about a new place.
I would love to hear about favorite, off the beaten path adventures to check out! Food fun is always a must, of course!
