Unless you live in a shell, you must have heard of the Greek crisis by now. For the uninitiated, let’s just say that Greece has been going through a debt crisis which got worse last month. Wondering why you should care, or how you can help? Well, the crisis might help you execute your long-pending travel plans to a foreign country.
Confused? Let me take you around this. Greece requires a much-needed injection of cash, and you need a vacation to a beautiful foreign land. Win-win for both? Absolutely! This clearly means now is the perfect time to bring your travel plans to fruition. And if you’re still unconvinced, these beautiful photographs of Greece will make you pack your bags!
