Irony wants it that shipping and tourism are the primary sources of income for the Greek economy.
And yet it’s the ships that go on strike, and the ship owners who don’t pay their taxes. The country is a large vessel drifting to the bottom of the sea, and the population is drowning in poverty. Beyond this tragedy, the media pour more weight on the boat to make it sink faster. If the economical situation is a disaster, it is up to us, potential tourists, not to boycott our greek holiday destinations. More than ever, we must travel to Greece and overcome our fright of riots and strikes in Athens. It is most unlikely that taking the bus or the taxi from the airport to the port of Pireas will encounter any trouble. The Greek hotel business remains welcoming to foreigners and the sun will still shine over their beautiful beaches.
Save Greece, travel to Greece.
Easter falls late this year, providing the security of nice weather. Greek Easter festivities are an excellent reason to participate with the processions and enjoy spring on the islands. Amorgos is particularly colourful at that period of the year. It offers hiking opportunities and all the taverns and hotels await your visit.
Let’s go « Greek » this year!
