Hi Curly! Welcome to the forum! Greek-American from NY? I have so many fun memories of hanging out in NYC with my Greek-American friends from college at Athens Cafe and Vyzantio in Astoria (plus tons of other places that changed their name every year!). I used to shop at the Greek grocery stores too - Titan and another whose name I forgot.

Messenia - welcome to you too! I love that area (Ancient Messini) - so beautiful and SO HOT in the summer (OMG!) - I go there most summers around the end of July and it gets brutal :P

Hi Messinia,
I only discovered snorkelling this year as I'm a bit of a scaredy cat in the water but I love it now and have bought a wet suit too so still occasionally going in the sea!

Hello all!
I am part Greek and part British and have been living in Athens again for the past couple of years. I am still (re) discovering this wonderful city and luckily working with non- Greeks get to share the gems.
What a great idea to have introductions

Hello! My name is Evan, and my girlfriend and I are looking into living in Greece next Fall/Winter/Spring. I travelled through Greece two years ago and have been dying to return. We both have recently completed our undergraduate degrees, and are excited to spend the next year or so travelling before locking down and pursuing our graduate studies. I suppose you all should prepare for a barrage of seemingly senseless questions!

Welcome to the board Evan! Are you planning to travel around Greece for a year, or are you looking to pick a spot and settle in?

Hi wka, just joined the forum about 1 hr ago! Looking forward to some good chats. We bought a 300 year old house in Sikinos, Cyclades about 10 years ago and slowly renovated it. My husband retired from the fire service (early) 2 years ago and I took early (very!) retirement April 2011. Last year we spent 6 months on the island and loved every minute. Returning end March. Have got lots of stories and experiences that hopefully I can share with people, firstly though I've just posted a note re scorpions which I hope someone can help me with

SikinosLady, how wonderful to have you! I was your neighbor until July. We lived in Folegandros until the end of the last school year! We visited Sikinos and absolutely LOVED it. To me it is what Folegandros probably was 20 years ago, right before tourism exploded on the island and, in many ways, spoiled it for its own inhabitants. We have friends who worked on Sikinos (teachers) and have heard lots about the island (like how the school has 15 teachers and something like 7 students...).

I haven't seen your scorpion post but I never saw a scorpion in Folegandros, just those awful skolopetres (millipedes, I suppose, or maybe centipedes, not sure, but poisonous!!).
