Greece is most famous for its historical sites and Greek philosophers, however should be also considered as exciting place to visit on vacation especially
when it is comes to a beautiful landscape and relaxing atmosphere.
Greece is big
country to explore therefore, before I started planning our holidays I had a dilemma choosing between Greek islands and mainland. Turned out that with a bit of planning we have seen both.
We spent 10 nights in 5 different hotels, exploring Greece, enjoying regional food and meeting fantastic people along the way.
Greeks are warm, friendly and famous for their hospitality. They are cheerful, helpful and chatty making your visit memorable so don't be surprised if your bill
came accompanied by shots of greek alcohol at a restaurant. Food is always very personal experience and some restaurants were better than other but in general Greek cuisine is tasty and portions are huge. Myself and my hubby, we chose different dishes and
desserts to share. This allowed us to taste most of typical Greek cuisine. The most popular dishes are: octopus, sea urchin, moussaka, tzatziki, stuffed vine leafs, souvlaki, gyros, kebab, stuffed tomatoes and peppers, different kind of meat cooked in a clay
pot, grilled meat, fishes, feta and cheeses, zucchini fritters, baklava, ravani, galactoboureko (filo pastry), loukoumades (fried ball of dough pastry), frozen greek yogurt and many more to choose from. Greek wine is also quite good, we tried red and white
from different regions of the country. Even though I am a red wine lover, in Greece I enjoyed more white one.
