First time going to Greece in November - any pro tips?? :)

My spouse and I will be staying mostly in the Athens area, but definitely looking for a few days to explore. It's likely we will have a rental car for a few days. Any good recommendations for day trips or any other 'off the beaten path' type destinations? Any other shares regarding travel, food, experiences, etc. are welcome! [more inside]

Best things to do in Skiathos?

I'm headed to Skiathos, Greece in about a week to celebrate a friend's milestone birthday. Is there anything we shouldn't miss? Restaurants, museums, culture? I know the beaches are beautiful, but am not sure I can spend an entire week sitting on a beach; I love to explore and do as much as I can on vacation. Day trips that don't have to be booked too far in advance also welcome (we're already spending a day going to Lalaria Beach). Thank you!

Where to spend a few days in Greece that's not Athens

We have about ten days in Greece in early June. The first half or so of that will be in Athens but I keep seeing people say that Athens isn't exactly a place that it's fun to just exist in for a little while and that the beaches aren't great. So where can we go that's close/cheap to get to that's more idyllic? [more inside]

Greece trip -- advanced (winter) filter

I will be in Greece in February and March for an event. I'm looking for a lovely spot (an island?) outside of Athens to relax for a few days afterwards. Where can I go that's a bit special and still has things to do in the off season and isn't too, too cold? (I know it will not be warm.) [more inside]

Cretan Holiday

Two young adults have a short holiday on Crete coming up in July. Cheapo flights are booked to Heraklion airport, but they haven't decided where exactly to spend the holiday yet. Do you know a place that would tick (most of) their boxes? Or have any other tips with regard to Crete? Major limitation: no driving. [more inside]

Delta 8 to Δ 8...?

Delta 8, Urban Haze brand, 10 mg microdose infused gummies are the only things have cured my insomnia in a lifetime of sleep struggle. I am flying into Athens from the USA in a couple of weeks and don't want to risk bringing my package of gummies with me. [more inside]

A nice gift for someone going camping in Greece?

A good friend of mine will be camping in Greece and travelling around by bus visiting Athens and some other places. Then they’ll be doing a yoga retreat, also in Greece. I was thinking of getting a little gift for them (£20, $30ish), something they could take with them that would be useful or comforting. But I’m drawing a blank.
