Greece travel guide

Greece is not just a conservatory of ancient ruins, no matter how beautiful, and is not limited to its distant, prestigious past. Greece has a lot to offer anyone who knows how to think outside the box. In other words, it would be a pity to limit oneself to a circuit that could not be more classical, that of archaeological sites, without pushing the curiosity a little further. Cross roads are made to be borrowed.
The change of scenery is actually where there is nothing to see. It is in the lost places of Greece that we still have the chance to be welcomed in the respect of the Greek tradition, that of philoxenia, the traditional “hospitality” of the Greeks, which still exists in certain  forgotten places.

This small country is in fact immense: on the continent, the territories are divided by the mountains and the islands are as many miniature countries, with the own identity, that one invites you to discover (this guide of the mainland Greece in details about ten who are close to the continent).
Of course, Greece is still suffering from an economic crisis – and moral … But do not stop at all that the print media or television could say about these “curious” Greeks – curious, at least to eyes of quite a lot of Northern Europeans who judge them rather severely. Show yourself also curious, in the other sense of the term, to go beyond and discover a population that has the vocation of the welcome and will wish to exchange with you on many subjects … Despite all the difficulties, if l Judging by the tourist attendance of recent years, the country keeps intact its power of attraction, and that’s good!

Athens

Athens is, of course with its extraordinary monuments, museums with exceptional collections, fruits of a history that skips the millennia.
It is also a bubbling, popular atmosphere, both Mediterranean and European, as singular as it is typical of today’s capitals.
A city with multiple identities, to which each neighborhood brings its tone. From the picturesque alleys of Plaka rolled up at the foot of the Acropolis to the profusion of market halls, the winding streets of Psiri stuffed with neobistrots variegated with those of Exarchia the libertarian or Gazi the trendy, Athens, the Greek capital, refuses to let down under the blows of a crisis that never stops to get worse.
Athens is obviously a city with a tumultuous history. In fact, a great fifty years especially glorious will have been enough to ensure an eternal fame.

Cruise vacations: best destinations around the world

There has never been a better time to hit the high seas for a cruise vacation. An estimated 38.4 million passengers will be cruising the world’s waters in 2018 in search of a remarkable vacation.

According to Cruise Market Watch, the worldwide cruise capacity is up almost 7 percent in 2018, as cruise lines add new ships to boost their lines. And with the additional space, some cruise lines are offering value pricing so the new space and the existing spaces are booked.

There are plenty of short-range cruises available for a quick getaway:

A three-night cruise to the Bahamas for just $199. You’ll see Miami, Fla., Nassau and Norwegian Private Island.

Or maybe you would like a five-night cruise to the Western Caribbean, starting in Miami and traveling to Ocho Rios and the Grand Cayman – all for $359 per adult passenger.

Or for $489 per adult passenger, go the other direction toward the Eastern Caribbean for a seven-night cruise to Miami, Samana, St. Thomas, Tortola and Great Stirrup Cay.

Or, if you want to start on the West Coast, consider a seven-day cruise from Los Angeles, Calif., to Mexico. For $499 per adult passenger, you can enjoy stops in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas and then back to Los Angeles.

These cruises offer just a taste of the quick-trips available from U.S. ports of call. There are plenty of other ventures on both sides of the coast to experience. But with cruising so hot this year, this may be the time to try a trip that’s a bit more alluring – someplace off the Caribbean track.

How about a seven-night cruise to Australia and New Zealand for just $759 per adult passenger. You start in Sydney, Australia, and will continue on to Noumea and Isle of Pines, both islands making up New Caledonia.

Starting for around $1,000 per person, you can take a 12-day cruise to Latin America and see sites you’ve only heard about in an atlas.
