What Greeks find strange in the UK
Have you ever wondered what Greeks find strange in the United Kingdom when they visit or relocate for the first time? Find out ten of the most common issues Greeks encounter.
When someone visits a new country for the first time it is very normal to experience a culture shock: certain things they took as granted are unheard of in the new place; certain stereotypes are created or deleted; customs and traditions feel and look out of this world.
Each year, more than 3 million British visit Greece. And each and every one of them has a story to tell when they return to the UK. For some, this story will be full of adventure, new experiences and memorable moments. To others, it may be an unexpected education. To others still, it could be not what they were looking or hoping for.

Things we find to be a culture shock or a new experience worth exploring. They can be funny, awkward and, at times, can lead to misunderstandings too!
