Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your daughter's symptoms and am sure she is having a good time in Greek Islands.

Regarding her throbbing headache, most likely they are because of migraines. Migraines can get aggravated in sunlight, with lack of sleep or with eating food late. These may happen during a travel.

Regarifng swelling of feet, I would not worry, as it could just be because of prolonged walking or sitting in a vehicle.

For headaches, she could use ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
