It will be love…!
During the financial crisis, the Germans saved the Greeks with billions – now they want to give us something back: Greece offers asylum to Germans who are tormented by price shock and energy fear.
Minister of Tourism Vasilis Kikilias (48) on BILD: “For autumn and winter, it would be a great pleasure for us Greeks to welcome German pensioners who wish to experience a ‘Mediterranean winter’ with Greek hospitality, mild weather and quality services.” And: “We will wait for you here.”
The message: If living in Germany is too expensive for you, if you are afraid of a chilly winter with cold heating, you should come to Greece.
Best place for winter travel: The island of Crete in the south. Winter here lasts only two months – and even this is interrupted by ten warm days (Alkyonidis phenomenon).
