To the Editor:
After four years, I will finally be able to go to Greece. The summer before the coronavirus I had not been able to go, so just like that, it’s been four years away from home. But now that I can go, I will not stay as long as I used to in the past and this is because plane tickets are expensive, but life in Greece is also expensive. Even ferry tickets are more expensive than they were five or six years ago. For example, the ferry ticket to Syros is almost $55 per person. Hotels are also expensive and do not have many rooms available. On many islands, the occupancy is very high – many rooms are already booked and the hotels have raised their prices. I have done a lot of research and really vacations in the homeland have become very expensive. And I imagine as we move forward in the summer and with the arrival of many more tourists, the prices will continue to rise.
