  • Plaka

    Athens Shopping

    We enjoyed walking around in the Plaka area of Athens in the evenings. I did my souvenir shopping during this time. I always try to pick up something that my friends, family and coworkers would really like to have. So, I bought several bottle openers and Mati charms. Since, the owners of where I work are Greek, they appreciated getting the Mati...

    Ok we are not on holiday to cook and clean but I do like breakfast on the balcony, as we arrived we noticed the supermarkets were all closed being sunday! It was worth our while to drive to Irapetra to shop for the things we would need and use during a 10 day stay. The prices compared to the local shops in Makrigialos were a big saving. Although we...

    I am from Greece originally, but grew up in Spain. Last summer I went for vacation to the island of Santorini and found it magnificent.

    I love visiting food and flea markets in most cities, so I would miss the oldest one in Thessaloniki which is a trip to Middle East. Kapani Market (Ut Kapan during the Ottoman occupation as it’s 200 years old) is a large area west of Aristotelous street with dozens of stores. They are houses in small old buildings (one or two storeys) and sell...

    If you stay at the beach for long time you will notice that sooner or later people pass by selling various things, hopefully they're not pushy and and a simple no will send them away (until the next one)... Some of the items for sell are pareo, hats, cheap bracelets, pendats and rings, sunglasses but also something to eat (pic 4), usually koulouri...

    Ios Island Shopping

    For the best place to buy local products on the island is got to be the small shop in Chora called “The road to the taste”. Most of the products like jams, pickles and honey are all made on the island by locals. Also the locals do hand pick herbal tea or oregano and thyme from the mountains which is also on sale in the shop and that is where I...

Also if you...

    Any shop sells olive oil over there but it has nothing to do with a reality. You may find the real one at any restaurant in the village as the owner might probably have the olive business as well. It's very cheap. Besides you may buy a nice souvenir bottle and it will go together well as a typical greek gift. Just a tip.
