A great way to see Greece is to combine a cruise of the beautiful Greek islands and a bus tour of the mainland. You’ll see the picturesque blue roofs of Santorini, the windmills of Mykonos and the butterfly valley of Rhodes.
Then you can take a fantastic escorted tour of the mainland and see the Peloponesian area of Greece, visit the awe-inspiring Corinth Canal and the Parthenon and Acropolis of Athens.
It is a great way to see Greece in 10 or 15 days. Don’t forget to visit the beautiful beaches and museums!

Greece is part of my heritage. As a child growing up I was lucky enough to go to Greece every three years to visit my grandparents and uncle. My grandparents had to return to Greece when I was about five due to my grandmother’s health and my uncle went with them. My uncle eventually married and had children and stayed in Greece. When we went to Greece we would get to stay two to three months at a time. I really loved going there. The people were always friendly and went out of their way to help me even though I didn’t speak Greek very well. Most of our visits were to the beautiful island of Crete. We got to visit Knossos and, of course, the gorgeous beaches. We visited relatives up in the villages in the mountains.
I never really felt left out. The neighbor kids, who were taking English in school, were always happy to practice their English with me, and I got to practice my Greek. It was fun coming back every three years and pretty much just continuing on with those friendships, seeing how all of us changed over the years. As we got older, since some of my friends in Greece were older than me, they got married and had children. I loved being able to practice my Greek and by the time we left was pretty much able to hold conversations. Of course, not using it much when I returned to the States, I would forget most of it and have to relearn it when I returned to Greece! My father is of Greek descent but never learned the language. My mother taught Greek for over 30 years, which is where I learned it, but not speaking it on a regular basis you don’t get very fluent. I understand Greek a lot more than I can speak it, which surprised my mother sometimes when I asked questions about something she discussed with her friends on the QT by speaking in Greek (or so she thought!).
Greece is still my favorite place to visit as often as I can. I still find the people so friendly and willing to help those who don’t speak Greek. Most of the younger crowd know very good English and a lot of the business owners do too. It is still a very beautiful, culturally rich place to visit. Unfortunately the ability to stay for two to three months is not an option for me any more, but boy would I love to live there for that amount of time if not longer!

Your honeymoon is the last thing you want to turn into a disaster or disappointment. After all the chaos of a wedding, any new couple both needs and deserves the vacation! The best way to avoid problems is to help prevent them. Careful honeymoon planning is always your best insurance against things turning into a wreck.
Honeymoon trips need to be planned the same way as any other trip: with caution and lots of double-checking. Researching your destination and travel method is never a waste of effort. Always allow time for problems, such as delayed or missed flights. Make sure you have a list of emergency contacts, travel papers, identification and emergency cash in a safe place that’s easy to access.
Check about suitcase limits and carry-on item restrictions before packing. Make sure you research this information not only for your area, but for the area you’ll be traveling back from. Nothing can cause problems like having all your personal effects denied passage with you.
Honeymoon vacation packages can be both easier and harder when it comes to potential travel problems. On the good side, they are usually knowledgeable choices of reliable business’s and travel routes. On the other hand, vacation packages can pack everything much too tightly, leaving little room for unexpected delays. Always look for packages that include insurance or leniency regarding any travel problems.
Honeymoon cruises are a much more reliable vacation, once you’re on the ship. Since your lodging is your travel, you very rarely have to worry about anything. However, you must leave time before and after your cruise for travel emergencies. The cruise will leave at a certain time on a certain day, with or without you. If you try to fly in right before the cruise is supposed to depart and there’s a single delay, you’ll literally miss the boat.
Regardless of your honeymoon type or specific destination, it’s always a good idea to have an emergency back-up plan. The riskier your trip, the more you need the back-up. If you’re driving a few miles to an inn down the road, you probably have nothing to worry about. If you’re taking an Antarctic cruise after hiking through a jungle, there are many potential risks and a back-up plan is vital.
