Poros, Greece ... Today!

Uncrowded - Poros, July 1, 2010

ANOTHER day, another strike. This time by the transport union. In case you hadn’t heard, Greece – Europe for that matter – is in a spot of bother and tourism is suffering. All across the Greek Islands (apart from the iconic Santorini) tourism operators – from ferry boat captains to cafe owners – are complaining of a slow early summer season and see little prospect of change, maybe for the next couple of years … a bonus for those who make it; low prices, uncrowded beaches, turquoise water. An unexpected side-effect is improved service, a better tourism industry, ready for the next upswing, which may come sooner than many locals think.
