Location of reviews wildly different from home town

I just got level 38 in pogo and my wayfarer certification while on holiday in Crete. Despite my current location and home town location being in the Netherlands I am getting only Greek reviews in my feed. With help of my wife, who does speak and read Greek, and my mother in law who lives in Crete I have been able to at least do a few of the reviews, but it hardly seems appropriate for me to affect the Greek / Cretan communities with my limited knowledge of the area and culture.

How can I set / reset the location used for the generation of reviews apart from setting my home town location, which is already appropriately set?

    You have 3 locations. Your hometown and bonus locations, and the location where you're playing Niantic games.

    When you've been on holiday somewhere, it can take a while to update the location you last played in. You can try to expedite the process by spinning Pokéstops at your home location, and if you have an Ingress account attached to the same email as you use for Pokémon Go, then hack a few Portals now that you're back home. It should eventually start showing you mostly things in the Netherlands.
