Welcome to Greece! A Kilo of String by Rob Johnson takes readers on an entertaining trip to Greece with the author and his wife, Penny, and their experiences while living there. The author’s entertaining stories, interesting anecdotes, and humor make this book an excellent read for everyone; especially those who are keen to travel and learn more about other countries. The book captures the sights and sounds of Greece, the way of life, the culture, and customs in detail, giving readers a feeling that they are already there in the country. The genuineness of the book and the author’s perception of the country make this an engaging read.

The book speaks not only about the country, but also the daunting experience of moving to another country and buying a house there. The preparations taken to settle down in Greece, their adventurous journey, the quaintness of Greece, and the idyllic feel of the place have been expressed well and will make many readers want to travel. It is interesting to see how the author has knitted in his experiences of living there along with the sights and sounds of the country. The problems faced while living in a foreign land, the insights thrown in by the author, and more can be used as a guide to all those who want to settle down in Greece. It is well written with handy tips on how to handle the Greek culture, customs, and way of living.
