I don’t want to talk about politics:P But when you are traveling, it’s a topic you can never avoid because you need to know your safety. My first impression when I arrived Athens was-DREADFUL! There’s tons of concrete block buildings and Graffiti all over the place! Even the Acropolis cannot make this city shine:P My Taxi driver told me couple of years ago Athens was a city that never sleep. But after the economy crisis, a lot of people lost their job and crimes in the city increase dramatically. People couldn’t afford to go out and spend money so a lot of shops closed. But was Greece very dangerous? To me, it’s just like any city in the world, shit do happen:P But luckily, nothting happend to me:)…..YEA!Demi Mist🙂 She kept telling me the city center is not safe at night, but we did wandered around the city for a bit during the day:)
She also gave me a bracelet as a gift and I bought a pair of earrings for 35 Euro:)
And I was supposed to meet up with another Blogger Friend –Adeola but the bus company is ON STRIKE so she couldn’t come to Meteora to meet up with me. Well, afterall, Meteora is breath-taking:) Much better than Athens:)
So, if you guys really want to travel to Greece, I suggest you all either head to the islands or head up north to visit Meteora or Delphi:) These places are much more interesting than staying in Athens:)
Delphi is a place 2000 feet above sea level and the mountains are beautiful:) Below Remains become very famous lately! Why? Because of the title-“Acropolis Adieu, You’ve got to go“.
That’s why there’s a Strike in Athens some times ago before I arrived! However, Athens is on General Strike every other week anyway!!! To me, this is really nerve-wrecking because how can a tourist go anywhere without public transportation from some times? I myself didn’t have internet access because of this in the hotel for 2 nights!!
BUT, to me Greece is still a great place to visit:) Because of the richness in culture and history. I myself is a Huge Fan of Greek God stories, needless to say I cannot get my eyes off the characters from the movie”300” !!!Greek is SO HOT:P(i know those actors are NOT greek but still I think Greek is hot..ok:P)
