Default Saying hi! :-)

Just introducing myself quickly, as I'll start another thread with my question -- I'm on my final which-of-these-three-cities decision for moving to Greece in a month and a half (lordie that came up fast!). I'm a 58y/o woman, no car, kids, furniture, just me and my laptop (I work online as a copyeditor/proofreader and also business ESL teacher), EU citizen. I chose Greece as my next country for a year (lived in Italy 15 years, now have been in Hungary for one) because I have a little wine/olive oil/food website that I'm growing, hoping to make it much more in the coming months, and I figured Greece is perfect for a whole new section on it! The three cities of choice are Thessaloniki, Kalamata and Athens/suburbs. Will do a thread for suggestions!

Thanks!
Maria

Hello all! Just wanted to introduce myself. I have recently returned home from a trip to Greece and I have decided to make my way there to live. I am from the US, but once my Greek DNA mingled with the earth and sea, I knew from that moment thatís where I was meant to be. I am hoping to find some resources and some opinions/advice from others in similar situations. I am leaning towards the Thessaloniki area but nothing is in stone until I know the process of how this will all work. Iím 34 and have an income generating rental property here in the states that will give me cushion to survive, as I was first thinking of doing a Workaway stay at a hostel/hotel or two during the first few months. I am hoping to have things figured out and leave within or at 6 months from now. Again, I am just beginning my research here but I welcome any info that youíd like to share, or just to say hello!

Best!
Stephanie

Hi guys,

Nice to meet you here. I am native Greek, grew up in this nice country Greece and now after 25 years abroad, I decided to come back and pass the rest of my life here as there is not existing more beautiful country with all this variety and mix from culture, history lifestyle and lots more, with people that even the crisis continue to smile and enjoy life even the difficulties.

Hello Everyone
I'm Dorota. I will be moving to Athens in May and really looking forward to living in sunny Greece. Having lived in Poland, UK, Singapore and France, I now wonder what Athens will be like and how to take the most from this new experience.
Have a good day!

Hello to everyone. I posted a couple of replies yesterday and rather rudely didnt introduce myself first before invading with my opinions. I have been living off and on in Greece every year for the last 15 years or so. I first moved to Athens from England to start a new life with my Greek girlfriend. After 3 years, and with things having the habit of evolving, i found myself housesitting (with a dash of petsitting thrown in for good measure) around Greece but mainly on the Islands. I first stayed on Kythira for 8 months in a beautiful isolated village before moving on to Naxos, where i house sat for a Greek/American couple for 6 months during the off season for the last 9 years.
Despite my situation changing radically from the one i imagined when i moved to Athens, i feel very lucky to have been able to spend so long in Greece. I do love the islands when they are not so busy and i have eventually found the path to living a bit of a healthier lifestyle and fully appreciating this great country. Having seen Greece collectively being pushed into a very uniquely negative situation after Europe's economic problems, my admiration for the citizens increases on a yearly basis.
Anyway, those things probably shouldn't be in an introduction, so i shall conclude now by saying hello again to everyone.

Γεια σας! I'm a Brit living in the US, and planning to buy a house in Crete before the wretched Brexit kicks in. I lived in Athens as a child, but left when I was 8. I've been visiting Crete regularly for the last few years. I've been learning Greek for 2 years, έτσι μπορώ να μιλήσω λίγο ελληνικά. I'll be looking for lots of advice from you folks...
