My best travel tips
Eating and drinking
Depending on what island you’re on you’ll either be drinking tsikoudia or Ouzo. All of which is better than the Turkish Raki, or the Balkans Rakija, at least that’s what the Greeks will proudly announce. No proper Greek meal out with friends and family is complete without bottles upon bottles of Raki, whatever the local spirit is. You can shoot it, sip it, or our favorite and possibly most popular way, mix it with water giving it a cloudy white appearance. Yamas! Which means “to our health” in Greek and is the way to cheers.
These are the two drinks of choice when it comes summer time. Sure, the Greek coffee is famous and we love it. However, you a local will not be caught with one when it’s 35°C outside. In the summer Greeks drink frappes, a cold Nescafe that is topped with foamed milk and sugar. Our personal favorite is a fredo cappuccino, which is espresso poured over ice then topped with cold foamed milk. A frappe at a good price should cost €1 and a fredo cappuccino €1.50, if you find yourself paying more it better be sit down service or you’re getting the tourist price.
We found the water in Greece perfectly fine to drink
Money and cost
Remember that Greece uses the Europlug. Make sure you find a good adapter like the one I have to keep you charged. Otherwise, you may be paying for a cheap one once you land.
If you’re planning to get around Crete you’ll quickly learn that Crete is very rough terrain. Meaning that roads wind back and forth and back and forth. They can be fun for the first thirty minutes, but after driving for two hours they can be exhausting. Be sure to take breaks if you’re driving yourself around, often stopping in the little villages along the way can be some of the most rewarding travel moments. Views along the roads are also stunning, and you will need to pull over to take it all in.
I recommend using Rentalcars to find quality rental cars at reasonable prices all over the world:
