Greeks take their time.
They let beautiful moments longer.
They are passionate.
Like their ancestors, Greeks are still thinkers (and often big talkers).
They live closer to nature than we do.
For Greeks, time with family and friends always comes first.
.. and they party like its their last day on Earth.
The Romans really loved it here.
As did the crusaders.
So did the Venetians.
Eighty percent of the country is picturesque mountains
...but the beaches are absolutely
The towns look like this
The Mediterranean diet is from here.
Greek food is so much more than souvlaki and gyros.
Feta. The real, salty, creamy, crumbly stuff.
Freshest. Seafood. Ever.
Figs grow wild. Lots of them. Everywhere.
Breakfast in Greece is something special.
Coffee breaks are serious affairs.
They make mighty fine beer.
Athens is one of the most underrated cities in the world.
Athens nightlife goes on till the wee hours every day of the week.
Athens central market is a wonderland of delicious food.
The Exarchia neighborhood in Athens will never gentrify and never surrender.
Greeks leave paradise intact, unlike their Mediterranean neighbors.
Over 1,200 stunning islands to choose from.
Most of Greece is hard to reach and thats a very good thing.
From May to September youll almost never see a cloud.

This unsuspecting island village is home to an even more debauched party scene than Mykonos.
Lesbos is a real spot and its beautiful.
Crete has more history and landscapes on one island than some large countries have.
Mount Athos is still mysterious nearly 1,000 years later.
The acoustics at Epidavros will blow your mind.
Rock climbing on the island of Kalymnos is some of the best there is.
Yes, yes, that famous sunset from the village Oia on the island of Santorini (Thira) is OK too.
The mind-boggling monasteries at Meteora.
The Greeks saved Western civilization right here.
This WAS Sparta.
Alexander the Great was from here.
Zeus once ruled the world from up there.
The oracle worked its magic up here on Mount Parnassus in Delphi.
...and Poseidon from down there.
Icarus would have seen this beautiful place just before he crash-landed.
Theater was born here.
Philosophy too.
Democracy was conceived here on this rock.

What more can one country wish to be Proud, as Greece is :)
