Flood of Frogs Invades Greece

Here’s a slippery sight you certainly don’t expect to see in Greece: A horde of frogs recently forced the closure of a key highway in the northern part of the country.

Police said “millions” of the amphibians covered the road near Thessaloniki. Has the “home of the Gods” turned into the “home of the frogs?” Not likely. It is believed the jumpy critters were probably leaving a nearby lake in search of food.

Our Italy/Greece travelers begin their 15-day adventure on July 5. We’re happy to spread the word that there’s no longer any reason steer clear of this beautiful country. Last we heard, the frogs had cleared the scene and traffic was flowing smoothly.
