Hello, Emi here. I hope you are all well.
I had a quick decision to change my whole plan and that is how I ended up on a break. It was amazing to meet lovely people and visit some forgotten places.
I had a little holiday in Vienna for a few days and Greece for 2 weeks. I spent a few days in Athens and after I travelled at the Pelpponnese Region. I think there is very reasonable to stay if do your research. A lots of hours on the laptop. The Island are still a little expensive even though it is September and less travel because of the pandemic.
Kalamata was my base and I could use the bus to 3 other villages. First I was very eager to find a stunning beach which was even mentioned in the Pylos museum. It's called Voidokilia. I had an adventurous few hours to find it without car. I walked at least 12km that day. But I stopped at some beaches for dip which I could not have done if I drove. By the time I've got there I was too tired to take photos:).
I then visited Koroni charming little place. Last one was Pylos which has a beautiful huge castle. A lot to see.
No, I did not win the lottery ;)
Usually I stay in Hostels they are very cheep in big cities. Around 10 per night or less. Food is not so expensive if you eat street food. The situation is not too bad in the Hostels I guess a lots of people are not going abroad in this uncertainty. I also had a little delay and a new flight ticket to Athens since I wasn't properly informed at first of the requirements. Now I am getting a little nervous when I fly to other countries. But if it's meant to be it will be. If I have to learn some lessons on the way then that's fine too. Life is a learning experience this time is more so.
Last time I was in Greece I don't even remember the situation. But these days are very hard for the refugees and the locals. I talked to a man who told me about it a little. it is going on for 5 years now. There is a lot's of protests in the capital the Greeks are ready for change.
