Fancy a trip overseas? How about Greece?

If you are lucky enough to have a few spare dollars and fancy a trip overseas then a writer at The Guardian suggests that a trip to Greece would be a way to help the country out! It doesn't sound like a huge sacrifice to leave the Christchurch winter behind and land on the sunny shores of a Greek island. The writer has ideas for how to deal with the issue of money, and suggests spending what you can with local businesses.

The library has plenty of travel guides to help you on your way, suggestions for Greek recipes to get you in the mood, and history books to fill in those gaps from what you learnt in Classical studies at school.

If - like me - the money won't stretch to an overseas holiday, then perhaps a bit of Armchair Travel will have to suffice.
