The Greeks are wise as these Greek quotes will show you. They’re also really funny.

When I think of Greece, I think of dreamy islands and brightly blue painted doors.  I didn’t think of road tripping.

But now, having done it, I highly recommend it.  Leaving from Athens, our first stop was to Meteora, home to adventure-seeking monks. That was followed by several days in Epirus. It’s a region in northwestern Greece that is home to over 2000km of hiking trails and bears!  Yes bears in Greece!

Epirus is famous for its’ villages. Kallarytes, a village on a mountainside, consisting of just 15 houses was one of my favourites! Rather than returning the same way, we headed south. , since no trip to Greece is complete without a visit to the crystal blue waters that Greece is so famous for – that’s where  Parga comes in!

Now a road trip wouldn’t be complete without some tunes, which I’ll leave to you,  but I’ve got something even better for ya. Greek quotes, most from our very knowledgeable and hilarious guide Sophia.

As travellers know, connecting with locals and really getting a feel for a place enhances travel so much more than just sightseeing.

These Greek quotes will give you a feel for the real Greece and for how Greeks think.

WARNING!  You’ll never be able to say It’s all Greek to me again! OPA!
