What is Alternative Travel
Alternative travel is
travel or tourism that is not conventional in nature; it can be
a niche kind of tourism, such as going on a coffee plantation
tour of Colombia,
or it can be travel for people of “alternative lifestyles,” such as thrill-seekers.
Also called alt-travel, it can be somewhat hard to define. Often, it is a journey where the person becomes a bit more involved with the destination.
Alt-travel can mean different things to
different people, as it is quite the troublesome term. Some
think of alt-travel as travel that focuses on a certain
theme or experience, such as gay travel, religious pilgrimages, or touring only wine yards in Greece. However, I think this is merely conventional travel
with a priority, with a specific agenda. Just because it is still common for many to consider a gay lifestyle to be an “alternative lifestyle,” does not
mean that one’s sexual orientation should determine the travel term used.

Take a Cooking Course
Learning how to
prepare your favorite dish in the country you are visiting can
be the best souvenir you would bring home.
I took a culinary
class in Greece and it was an amazing experience. I learned to
prepare Moussaka and Baklava and also
the real authentic Tsatsiki dip. I was learning to cook in a company of other travelers,
so I've got not only new cooking skills, but also I have met new friends.

Greece 365 experience
Greece is most known for Sun & Fun. Yes, sunshine and pleasant climate. But NO; Greece is wonderful all year round. Even in autumn and early Spring, after and before the crowds run you over. Even in winter, when it may snow and temperature is near or even below 0c. Every season has its own beauty. You may ski in Northern Greece or take long walks without sweat. Just be prepared with the right clothing and you will have the best time of your life.
