How is the situation at Skopleos

Hi,

Travelling to Skopleos tomorrow and was wondering how The situation is? Heads about food shortages in Athens. Anthony like that there? Do the ATMs work? Do the still accept debit/credit cards?

Everyone is friendly and helpful, as normal. Bank machine was working, no line up. The sun is hot and the Aegean is the most amazing colours. There's no place else I'd rather be.

hello to all thinking about a holiday on greek islands, we are a family and here on beautiful skopelos island since 12 july. everything is perfect here and maestro and credit cards are accepted no problem, even when travelling by car from igoumenitsa to volos on the excellent highway. still i advice to have enough cash also because traditionally some places and tavernas prefer cash, and it helps local business right now also. what we observe is that there are less tourists than normally during july, which is pleasant for us since easy to find a place on beach or restaurant, however less good for local economy. having been travelling greece since 80s we also notice that local people are extremely friendly and helpful (was not always like this when tourism was booming...) and try to help wherever possible. also prices reasonable in restaurants etc. for beachchair (some even for free) and prices umbrella much down compared to old days (6 euro for 2 chairs and umbrella per day). can only recommend to see this beautiful country, now, which is some of the best help they can get.
