The magical hot summer of Greece is here! So is Magic Johnson! The legendary NBA basketball player has escaped to Corfu island. Greece has reopened to tourists and desperately needs and relies on the tourism for 20% GDP. With 31% of the Greek population currently fully vaccinated (as of June 25, 2021), it warms our hearts to see tourists escaping to the motherland and more celebrities arriving in Greece.
