Finally, after a few days running around to make new passport, I've got my visa for Greece!! Oh my gosh, I am so excited about that and I also have the tickets now even though I had to pay almost $500 more due to crazy increases in taxes and petrol while I was going through the visa process.
Thank you so very much to the Greek Embassy and their great staff that helped me heaps during my visa application. I am sure I will have the best 5 week holiday in Greece. If anyone has some tips on cheap accommodation and good places especially off the main tourist trail in Greece, please leave a comment. I would appreciate it.
