#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.42⠀ 💃Let's talk about an all-time favorite Greek summer obsession: the institution of 'pangiria', a type of fair or festival that celebrates the patron saint of the region it is held at with traditional Greek music, lots of dancing and large amounts of food. Leave it to the Greeks to make religious events all about laughing, dancing and eating delicious dishes! ⠀ 📸: @letssaygreg ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greece #greekvacations #greekdrinks #panigiri #greekislands #athens #likealocalguide #likealocal #locallife #traveling #traveler #instatraveling #instagreece #travelblogger #travelgreece #discovergreece #travellust #traveladdiction #greekculture #greekcustoms #ikaria #ikariaisland #greek #streetphotography #dance
#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.41⠀ 🥛The Greeks are known for their love of ouzo, a drink that is a mixture of alcohol, water, and aromatic herbs, with anise being one of the major ingredients. Drink it slowly, adding cold water to your glass, while accompanying it with some Greek appetizers such as octopus, calamari or sardines.⠀ 📸: zingleeathens⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #ouzo #greekdrinks #greekspirits #foodgasm #foodpics #foodies #footravel #foodpassion #foodograpfy #foodism #fooddiary #foodinsta #foodtrip #foodsharing #foodmania #foodmakesmehappy #foodingreece #likealocalguide #likealocal #locallife #traveling #traveler #instatraveling #instagreece #travelblogger #travelgreece #discovergreece #travellust #traveladdiction

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.36⠀ 🍉I can think of nothing more refreshing for a hot summer's day than a cold slice of watermelon, the fruit that any creature with a mouth is bound to love! ⠀ Of course, the Greeks couldn't help but put a Greek spin on its consumption.

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.33⠀ 👒Straw hats are not only protective, but also very fashionable, which is why we're obsessed with them!

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.32⠀ 🌊When diving into the iridescent waters of #Greece , you're sure to come across one of the sea's most fascinating -and weird looking- creatures, the sea urchin.⠀ ⠀ Although scary looking, sea urchins are quite useful. They are indicators of clean waters and make up for a delicious local #greekmeze . ⠀ ⠀ You can even pick them up -carefully- and watch them move on your palm. Just beware of their sharp spikes; stepping on a sea urchin is the last thing you want to do!⠀ 📸 : @iriniel83 ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greeksea #seaurchin #summeringreece #exploregreece #likealocal #greekingmetours #greekingme #travellikealocal #traveladdiction #coastalgreece #greekbeach #greekculture #triptogreece #travelingreece #athensgreece #visitathens #greece_is_awesome #wu_greece #instagreece #traveladdict #travellife , #travelphoto #tourism #likealocalguide #experiencegreecelikealocal #ig_athensshots #greeksummer

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.29⠀ We are obsessed with the funny-looking shoe that has a rich history and is part of the Greek traditional costume: 'tsarouchia'. ⠀ 👞Tsarouchia used to be a light, handmade leather that was worn by both male and female villagers in mainland Greece. Today, they are worn as the traditional footwear of the #Evzones -the presidential guard outside the Greek parliament. ⠀ Check them out during your visit in Athens - they can weight up to 3kg each😱⠀ 📸 : @summertimelanaz ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greekcostume #tsarouchia #greekparliament #greekpresidentialguards #summeringreece #visitgreece #exploregreece #likealocal #greekingmetours #greekingme #travellikealocal #feelslikegreece #besttravelagency #traveladdiction #urbanathens #ig_athensshots #greektraditions #greekculture #triptogreece #travelingreece #athensgreece #visitathens #greece_is_awesome #wu_greece #instagreece #syntagmasquare #greekfolktradition #experienceathenslikealocal
#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.29⠀ In #Greece , cicadas symbolize the arrival of summer and can be heard everywhere across the country as soon as the sun comes up, and more intensively in the afternoon, when many people enjoy their lunch in the local taverns or their siesta. ⠀ If you see one during your trip to Greece, don't be afraid, they don't bite; they're just on the tree boles to sing the summer away!⠀ 📷: @kaliparos ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greekcicadas #greeksummer2019 #summerbucketlist #summeringreece #visitgreece #exploregreece #likealocal #greekingmetours #greekingme #travellikealocal #feelslikegreece #besttravelagency #traveladdiction #greekislands #greece_countryside #greektraditions #greekculture #triptogreece #travelingreece #greece_is_awesome #wu_greece #instagreece #naxosisland #cyclades #greeksiesta

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol. 27⠀ 🍻 Atlhough the roots of the beer drinking are not Greek, one of Greeks' favorite drinks during summer is definetely a cold beer! ⠀ The Greek barley is a major cereal grain for the Greek agriculture, that's why, many microbreweries are thriving in Greece.

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.25⠀ Red #Eastereggs , traditionally get dyed on Holy Thursday, is one of our ⠀ favorite #Greekcustoms . Using either pastry-food colors or following a ⠀ more natural method of dyeing with colors coming from onions or beetroots,⠀ the Easter eggs will end up being the Holy Saturday's midnight family game, ⠀ known as 'tsougkrisma' which means the 'clinking'!⠀ Each player holds a red egg and taps the end of it against the end of another player's egg. The player whose egg doesn't crack is declared the winner! ⠀ ⠀ 🔽symbolism🔽⠀ 1. the red color symbolizes Jesus Christ's blood⠀ 2. the egg symbolizes the grave of Christ which was hermetic closed, like the eggshell, but life was hidden in the inside, meaning the Resurrection⠀ ⠀ fun fact: this basket in the photo is made by dough! ⠀ 📷: @akis_petretzikis ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #easterrecipe #doughbasket #easter2019 #greekeaster #greekrecipes#homemadegreekfood #redeggs #holyweek #greektraditions#dyeingeastereggs #greekfoodculture #culinarytravel #greekdelicacies#greektastes #tasteslikegreece #greekingmetours #likealocaltours #travelwithfamily #travellikealocal #travelwithfriends #travelexperiences #besttravelagency #likealocal #amazinggreece #passionforgreece #discovergreece #greekingme
