One of the best things to do in life is travelling. I love to meet people, learn about culture, food and see how people from different parts of the world enjoy themselves in a different place.
Greece is for sure one of the 10 best places I visited. Even though the Greeks suffers with the bad economy and other issues related to it, the country has happy and hospitable people who love Brazilians (lucky me). ‘We are a bit like you. We love to talk, dance and have fun’, a Greek woman told me in English.
As the days passed by, I noticed more similarities with Brazilians that I would like to share with you. Plus, the landscape is stunning.
Greek dishes are delicious and, just like Brazilians, Greeks enjoy eating a lot. I think you should try a little bit of everything: moussaka, gyros, tzatziki, Greek salad, grilled haloumi, olives and peanuts with sesame seeds and honey. The Greek olive oil is one of the best in the world and the olive tree can be found everywhere; in a pot, in the backyard of a house or in a souvenir shop.
The hotel next to the one I was staying at was chosen for a lively wedding. Before the party started, the musicians played and sang in the streets around the area. The guests arrived in honking motorcade. The celebration finished only when guests no longer had the strength to dance and all the food and drink has been consumed.
Greece inspires lovers, especially on the Santorini Island. Every year, hundreds of Japanese travel to this heavenly destination exclusively to get married.
Greece is one of the biggest cultural cradles of the ancients and enchanting for its history and known for the natural beauty of its islands. Many artists have portrayed this magnificent scenery. The country is always advertised as a great tourist destination. The sunset of Oia is known as one of the most beautiful in the world, but I preferred the one from Mykonos.
If you have never been there, book your flight and go!
