So I'm pretty sure the answer to this is "No", but I thought I'd ask anyways. Does travel to Greece require any sort of shots?

Thanks!

Good answer, Bobo! Or a shot of raki!

We did not get any vaccines and there will be LOTS of salad served with uber-delicious feta cheese! As far as I know, no one in our group got sick.

No box yet. I called ABD, and apparently they changed some of the artwork on the booklet, and they haven't gotten it back yet. He said they are scheduled to go out May 6th. That's cutting it pretty close! Oh, well.

Hmmm... I wonder if they will make changes to the itinerary as well.... Is this the first Greece trip of the year?

It is the first Greece trip of the year. I guess it's entirely possible they are changing the itinerary. I'll let you know what it says when I get it!

This probably isn't why the Greece booklet is bring printed this late, but the new booklets are different than in previous years. Our guide told us this was a change made by the new management. They've replaced the story book with a spiral bound handbook. You're expected to bring the book with you on your trip. They don't give you the second book when you arrive like they did in previous years. There are no more little gifts when you arrive - pen, water bottle, etc. We were given the duffle bag and gratuity envelopes.

That's kind of sad. It was part of the fun of arriving to see what the little presents were going to be. And what do they do if someone forgets the booklet? I can't imagine that was that big of an expense.

I forgot my booklet and the guides did have an extra one, but I think I was probably lucky. That is when he told me about the changes. I forgot my luggage tags too and they didn't have any extras. I don't usually forget anything like that, but I blame it on there being so little in the box this time. I wasn't going to bring the travel pillow/blanket with me, so the box just got shoved in the closet with the booklet and tags still inside. I'll do better next time.
