What you shouldn't do in Greece. What you DON'T do when you visit Greece. However you say it there are things to do in Greece and there are things you DON"T do in Greece. This video covers the things tourists and travelers should not do when they are in Greece. From showing the palm of your hand to not expecting Greek Time there are things that tourists to Athens, Santorini and Crete should know before they come to Greece.

We travel with a Microsoft Surface everywhere we go. I edit my videos on it & use it to backup my pictures and vides while we travel. It’s light and the best travel laptop on the market in my opinion.
amzn.to/2L55pDR
We use Sony Alpha series cameras to film our videos. They are compact so you don’t look like a super tourist when you take great pictures and videos while you travel.
amzn.to/2WbTNFH
We use Manfrotto Tripods. They are compact, travel well, and honestly I would not use another tripod for my nice cameras.
amzn.to/35AWqUs
Travel Plug that works in pretty much any country & has four USB ports. A must for any traveler.

Some corrections: If you literally force your palm open and show it to someone with force, it is a problem, but generally a more reserved hand is the standard hello, so don't be afraid if you wave hello with your hand open. Adding more wine to an already filled glass is not so much of a problem. Some curse words can be used in a sentence and not be bad (έλα ρε μαλάκα, πώς πάει? is like saying what's up bro?), just don't overdo it, only with close friends. Not bringing a gift to a house is acceptable. But yeah, if you are visiting someone first time, you better bring something. Athens and Thessaloniki as well as other big cities are more fast paced. Tipping isn't always necessary, but up to a euro can be tipped if wanted. (yeah, we are a little cheap, crisis) Jaywalking and clumsy driving are common in Greece. Don't mess with the police, just be cool, they sometimes help. Stay away from gypsy sites and stray dogs because they can be dangerous and generally do not wander at night, especially in Athens (Syntagma, syggrou,) Public transport is not available everywhere, only in big cities, and the tickets are fairly cheap. People aren't always hospitable but don't be offended, it's just our character. DON'T. DISCUSS. POLITICS. OR. RELIGION. (rarely do we) Thats all for now.

Just know us Greeks are nice but if you piss us off than thats when we are far more hesitant on hospitalities and also just know don't piss off the old people and we are very Christian people we are very spiritual we love life and we are loud if we raise our voice to you its not to yell at you really its just how we are im in the United States army and I'm second generation Greek American and I was louder than my ncos but yeah I'm stationed in Germany and every time Germans see me they party with me because we are very enthusiastic we love to celebrate any occasion no matter what occasion it is because some stuff the normal person takes for granted we see as a big deal we love to celebrate

I was there in 1967 right after a military coup. Papadopoulous or something. Anyway enjoyed the beach, but people put there swimwear on at the beach. Someone held up a towel, for someone who put their suit on. Well one day a breeze came a long and I saw my first naked lady. Not a lot of razors in Greece at the time. Was a beautiful country then, but no English. Athens. The cherries were delicious. We did cuss out some kids in Arabic and they knew what we were saying, and the chased after us. Do people still dress at the beach?

There is not such a thing as siga siga and Greek time. In August maybe, if you are a tourist. Try to leave in Greece during winter, it's so stressful and what you say it's just a stereotype that's not true. Everybody is actually running and we don't have time for ourselves during the working period, it's crazy.

Dear Mr. Wolter, we definitely share your passion for food. But please keep an eye on your body mass index and your health. Travelling around with high blood pressure is not the best idea, and we all want you to present us your sympathetic video presentations in the years to come! Perhaps you should present an additional clip series "hiking, biking and beach sports in xyz " 🤗

It is refreshing to watch a non biased video about my country...usually most people have misconceptions about Greece which are painful to watch...thanks dude...there is an expression in Greek "πάω αργά γιατί βιάζομαι" which is translated "I proceed slowly because I'm in a hurry"...usually Greek people are very pensive about what they do so they take their time...most people misunderstand this...actually Greek people are the third most hard working people on the planet according to a UN study...following South Korea and Japan...thanks again dude, you're a champ

If you spend days in Athens in particular, and you ordering delivery food at your place... bnb, hotel, whatever... always give generous tip to the guy who brings you the food at home, if you don't, the next time you will order he will have spit on it... do not blame the entire country for this, think what kind of people ending up doing that job, in general if the guy who brings you food doesn't look ''right'' do not eat it put it straight in the garbage. take this very seriously, and in fact do not stay in Athens at all, if you are passing, just pass

Also I would like to say that if you are a football guy. Don't wear a Red Star nor Partizan hoodie or T shirt in Athens or Thessaloniki especially in Toumba and Harilaou in Thessaloniki and in Piraieus in Athens. Football rivalries is a very big thing here. Football has political, social, cultural and historical importance. So I beg you to not wear them at all for your own good.
