"Oh, the Plumbing" Fira Warnings Or Dangers Tip by jancola

Fira Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 3 photos

The Greek islands are fabulous places, but the plumbing... not so much. Get friendly with your toilet paper, because you won't be flushing it down the toilet here -- you'll be keeping it in a lidded trash can next to the toilet.

Pick up some bottled water when you pass by the supermarket. The tap water here is very salty and not suitable for drinking.

And don't be surprised if your shower is right in your bathroom next to your toilet, so that everything gets wet -- this seems to be the way things are arranged. Get used to low pressure shower heads, too... I guess the salt water doesn't go through the shower head too well!

Ah well, you can't have everything, right?
