  1. I wonder if you remember posting last summer about an influx of eastern Europeans coming to the island for the beaches, but not eating out - their cars rolling off the ferry ready-loaded with cheap food.

    Wouldn't Thessaloniki be the main ferry they'd have used?

    1. Yes if there was a car ferry operating from there. But the Nel lines Alkyoni gave up that route five years ago. Everyone with a car has to go via Volos or Aghios Konstantinos.
      Biggest gripe amongst the taverna owners, is that the local neighbours from the Balklan states turn their studios into mini tavernas. When eating out a shared plate between two as its more cost effective that way.
      So with a car full of food your nearest port is Volos and the route is not the cheapest 60 miles in the world either ...
