This is a personal post, one that I have been meaning to write for a while now. I keep people saying, how gorgeous Greece is, how the would love to visit BUT how they are choosing NOT to because of the current situation. And it saddens me incredibly.
Greece IS gorgeous, Greece IS the most incredible travel destination, and Greece lives off tourism, no denying.
Greece IS suffering, yes, the situation for the Greeks is painful, BUT it is NOW that we need you all to come and visit our gorgeous country. It is NOT dangerous for you to visit, you will enjoy it, the Greeks will treat you with their warmth and love and I guarantee you, you will remember me, it's going to be the trip of your life. If you were considering Greece as your summer holiday but have been fearful, PLEASE do support the Greek tourism.
On an side note, yes I completely agree with the Anonymous comment (and yes I should have written this post long ago!) Greece is indeed suffering, BUT the world has not fallen apart indeed. Another thing I have heard is that it is dangerous to go to Greece now, it is not. And you may wonder, am I going to Greece this summer? YES I AM. And if you can, so should you. I am happy to help anyone with ideas, destinations etc etc just drop me an email (but bear in mind I am no travel agent and don't know much much, just my two cents)
