Greece is the favorite summer destination for the majority of Serbians, actually the most people I know had been there several times. But this time was the first time for the both of us, and we enjoyed there so much that we consider going there again. Greece is a country with very rich history and there are many beautiful and interesting places to visit.
Well this vacation was more for relaxing, swimming,..and less for exploring. Except one day when we went on trip to Olympus.
Before the trip I got well informed about things to buy and try/eat while there. Greek cuisine incorporates fresh ingredients into a variety of local dishes such as moussaka, Greek salad, spanakopita, souvlaki, gyros, loukoumi (it's the same as Turkish delight) and also the Greek coffee it's what we call Turkish coffee 🙂
We also try a few types of chocolate called Ion which I recommend 🙂 Also make sure to try fig jam njam njam :chef:
And don't leave Greece without some extra virgin olive oil and traditional hand made soap with olive oil.
Ouzo is kinda strong for me but sweet red wine Nemea is just perfect 🙂
People we met there were really kind, but we stayed in a touristic location so it's not unexpected. They are mostly traditionalist maybe even more than we Serbians.
Let me tell you something about Aegean sea, it's so warm, clean and mostly calm, with sand beaches and without seaweed, just perfect to swim or just float on the back 🙂
