As Greece and its pile of history attracts me and the country was listed in my bucket list to visit, I decided to travel around Greece during my big travel across Eurasia for 8 months. I consulted Akylina about the trip plan and after all she gave me unforgettable precious experience. First of all, I would not be satisfied with normal “tour” or “sight-seeing” things, for I have had enough of them already and I am rather interested in local people ‘s life and custom. She took time to think for a while and kindly let me join a traditional wedding ceremony in Thessaloniki. It was just amazing. I faced family’s tear of love, traditional Christianity, alive dance, and generous smile of everyone toward me as a foreign traveler.
I did not feel any wall between Greek people and myself. Now I guess that is lead by Greek hospitality. They don’t hesitate welcoming a stranger to their circle and share their joy, help and wisdom. You will surely feel the same like me in Greece traditional atmosphere.
