“Will foreign holidays be permitted by July? Or August? Your guess is as good as mine. But I’d like to think that by September – dear God, surely – we will have been given the green light to venture beyond our shores. If that’s the case, I will have endured a whole year without leaving Britain. And there’ll be one country I’ll want to visit above all others…” (Excerpt from article by Oliver Smith)

Greece is the first holiday destination The Telegraph’s digital travel editor, Oliver Smith, intends to visit when the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis ends.

In his article titled “The first country I’ll visit after coronavirus? There’s no contest” and published in the online edition of the British daily newspaper, Smith refers to Greece’s beauties and special features.

“What I want is the island’s pristine life, the wonderful food and accommodation, the quiet beaches, the lush green countryside and the ultimate getaway from the stress of modern life,” he says.

As Smith explains, Greece is a place where the British are always welcome with open arms, where the sun is always shining and where one can arrive from the UK in just a few hours by plane.

The Telegraph’s travel editor adds that traveling by sea is among the elements that make Greece an ideal holiday destination.

Smith has visited some of Greece’s most popular islands, among them Skiathos, Corfu, Kefallonia, Lefkada, Skopelos, Mykonos and Tinos.
