Just a thought
I have an ex colleague who now lives on Kos for the British winter and has done so for the last 4 years.
He tells me that during the summer months, it’s a great place to live and the locals are very friendly, however, once the tourist season is finished and hes there as a resident the locals are not quite as ..friendly! and he has trouble getting tradesmen to work on his house and gets the impression he is not particularly welcome as an “immigrant” on the island
i.e. its actually been said to him that ….he is in a house a local should have and also the influx of northern Europeans has driven house prices up.
My friend is a well mannered person I may add, and not the type to ….cause offence or fly the flag improperly. He has also, to my untrained ear, learned greek reasonabley well.
Personally I can in some way understand the train of thought of the locals on Kos.
So my point!!
Do any of you folks have similar feelings reference Crete.? or greece in general?
Im planning to move to Crete myself hopefully over the next few years, so this is just a little homework.
Ive been to several Greek islands (not kos)and the mainland many many times over the last 10 years and have yet to trip across an unpleasant Greek, but …ive always been a tourist ?
what do you folks living in the sun feel?
