6 Reasons Greece is the Place to Be

GreeceEver thought about visiting Greece? From Crete, Halikidiki, Ionian Islands, to the South Aegean Islands, you can’t go wrong with any destination in Greece. Feel like island hopping or spending more time on one island, while visiting multiple areas on that island? Sounds like paradise to me. Your perfect vacation in Greece is awaiting you. Greece is a country not to be missed and to make your Greece holiday planning simple, browse the many options First Choice provides for the perfectly turquoise getaway in Greece. My first experience in Greece was mainland sailing, while stopping off on a couple different islands. My favorite part was seeing the coast in the distance from the sailboat. The sights I saw along the way were as if I was in a fairy tale. Although I wasn’t able to visit all of the Greek destinations I imagined, I was still able to get a sample of what Greece can offer. I know that I will return to explore more within this beautiful country. If you didn’t know it already, Greece is the place to be. Greece

Here are 6 reasons why Greece is the place to be-

1. Greek Food- My favorite part of all was the FOOD. There is nothing I love more than Greek food. My boyfriend and I cook many Greek dishes on a regular basis. Within an hour of being in Greece, I had a chicken Gyros, spanakopita, and baklava. Turquoise water and Greek food is my kind of heaven. I ate one too many plates of traditional Greek marinated barbecued chicken, tatziki, and potatoes. I couldn’t get enough of the food. I knew that for days I would be in Greece I would be enjoying the shimmering turquoise water and delicious Greek food and it didn’t take me long to start getting my fill.Greece

2. Turquoise Water- If there is anything I love more than Greek food it is being by, in, or on turquoise water. Greece

3. Sunrises and sunsets- Waking up as the sun rises, seeing the most beautiful turquoise water I have ever seen, and watching the sun set each night is an experience I will have with me forever.Greece

4. Best beaches- The isolated beaches sit in the perfect spot, away from civilization and below and around gigantic rolling hills. People swim, sun bathe, and enjoy water sports. Other boats dock at the beach to experience a destination in what feels like in the middle of nowhere. Your ‘perfect kind of beach’ is waiting for you in Greece. Greece

5. Swimming in the warm water- Swimming in the warm brilliant salty shimmering turquoise water is where I want to be on a hot sunny day. Greece

6. The dazzling and brilliant stars reflecting on the sparkling water- Ending each day by dancing the night away under the stars high on a cliff overlooking Greece’s precious water is priceless.

Why don’t you just sit back, relax, and plan your holiday to Greece today! Visiting Greece will make your European turquoise bucket list dream come true. I know Greece was always one of my dream destinations and I’ve always wanted to see the turquoise waters that surround the Mediterranean country. Finally, in the summer of 2014, I made it to Greece. I landed in the one place I always dreamt about and seen in magazines and movies. Good things come to those who wait. I appreciated the beauty, simplicity, and authenticity in each town. I can’t wait to see more of the one place my heart holds a special space for. The sights I saw along the way were stunning and magical.Greece

My short trip in Greece didn’t give me much time to explore, but it gave me enough of a taste of the fabulous wonders in the country to know right away that I love it. I can’t wait to be able to explore more of the incredible sights in Greece. First Choice is tempting me to go back to Greece again soon with their irresistible all encompassing holidays that cover it all. Until then, I have the memories of visiting this turquoise heaven, while absorbing the best of what Greece had to offer.Greece

    • Seems that way doesn’t it? If I had more time on my hands I would be able to write way more posts! I am doing what I can with the limited time I have while working full time. I am doing more on my Facebook page compared to what I did before–especially now with so many contests going on in my local area.


      • I hear you, Jessica. At the moment I feel like writing all around the clock next to my job, family, Christmas preparitions… That reminds me that I did not take a look into my facebook page today… so busy, totally forgot!

      • Well, as they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day. We can’t do it all–we’re only human.
        This season is especially busy; I’ll be needing some days here and there (away from the blogging and online world) to spend time with family and friends as they’re the most important. I do have a lot on the go online so it’s always a balancing act. I have not mastered it yet. You? Any tips?


      • Still working on it. This social media is so new for me.I always knew it might take lot of time to foster those sites. That’s why I avoided to participate. But in order to promote my book it is a wonderful tool and honestly I don’t want to miss it anymore. Wouldn’t have met you for example.
        I try to simplify where possible and set priorities. Although I am still working on the priorities… 😉 It is not easy and it seems that we are on a similar place at the moment. I still try to catch my breath and I am way behind my usual schedule at this time of the year. The most important thing is organizing, planning in advance and reserving time without compromises. I would get totally lost without. But anyway I am happy how things are.

      • Sounds like we are two birds of one feather! I feel like I have said that to you before. Have I? We think a lot alike. Of similar mind sets and are always thinking BIG. Go big or go home. It will all balance out! 🙂 Keep up the great work.

    • I don’t think so! I probably would (I hope I wouldn’t get tired of it then). I am going to Montreal over Christmas break and I will be having authentic Greek while I am there! I can’t wait!

  1. I love, love, love Greece. I haven’t yet got to it’s shores but I love it anyway LOL! Why wouldn’t I not with the lovely little fishing boats, and the lovely little tables covered with huge flat plates of delicious food, and fabulous drink. Whoopa!
