      1. Indeed, Greece, like many more countries have unique and stunning locations. The best of Greece is that there are mountains so close to the sea side, that during spring time in the morning you can go for mountaineering (or skiing) activities and in the afternoon you can enjoy a swim by the sea side.

        Enjoy the outdoors and your travelling.
