    Frick Greece. Go to 3 beaches in Alabama and call it a day.
    Greece has been a shithole since people starting travelling there for the sake of "muh temples and theaters that look just like every single church and bank in the rest of the Western world". If you wanna go to a gyros shop, you can find one in Downtown Birmingham, Alabama. If you wanna hear some stories about the old Greek gods, open up your copy of Ovid's Metamorphoses and start reading a few verses out loud.

    t. has been to Gayreece, specifically to Athens and Corinth

    PS Istanbul will never be taken back by the Gayreeks.

    Visited Greece while stationed in Germany. My commander gave me and the LT a 4-day to run the Athens Marathon. LT booked through a travel agency or something it his trip got messed up. Ended up just going alone thank God. Good times but rough course. I had 52 days of ETS leave at the end of my time and did a backpacking trip too OP

        The route is basically all along the highway so it's not really possible outside of them shutting down all the roads. It's nice for the novelty but only the beginning and end are really interesting sights.

        My backpacking route probably seems weird in a vacuum but it was really just hitting up some sights I was interested in before leaving. I think I went
        >Berlin
        >Hamburg
        >Amsterdam (bunch of surrounding areas
        >Brussels
        >Bruges
        >Paris(Montmartre, Mont St. Michael, Omaha beach)
        >Milan
        >Venice
        >Florence (Siena, Pisa)
        >Naples(Pompeii)
        >Sorento
        >Rome
        I'm probably missing a bunch of smaller towns but it was mostly on rail. Good time

          I also return to Germany later as a contractor and had another situation where I had like 3 weeks of leave. That one was.
          >Zurich
          >Lucerne
          >Interlaken(Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald,spiez)
          >Bern
          >Colmar(kaiserberg)
          >Zurich(Konstanz, rapperswill, Lichtenstein)
          At this point I started going based off of cheap flights to places I was interested in
          >Malta, (Valletta)
          >Cyprus (Paphos)
          >Latvia (Riga)
          >Oslo
          >Stockholm
          >Copenhagen
          >London(Oxford, Canterbury,Dover)
          Feel like I'm missing a country but these were the broad strokes. Lasted probably a month. Met up with family members for like 2 weeks during it

    I was in Greece for 2 weeks in September here's some info I can think of:
    >KTEL bus network is actually pretty good
    >Athens is a fairly boring city, but totally worth it for all those historical sites
    >Crete was really good, very underrated place
    >Santorini on the other hand... Looks nice for 15 minutes then it's just overpriced tourist shit
    >Meteora is pretty great and worth going to
    >A lot of the famous sites are not viable for people who aren't renting a car, don't hype yourself up about seeing some obscure historical ruins and then realising you can't get there by bus and there aren't hotels nearby.

    Another vote for Meteora. And bring some extra money, they sell some gorgeous orthodox icons.

    some general advice
    1) befriend some locals, ask them where to eat, only eat in those places (the touristy places suck)
    especially applies when you want to eat souvlaki
    2) avoid famous islands. yes, they're extremely beautiful, but they're expensive as frick
    3) related to 2), stick to the mainland. and, related to 1), ask the locals about good beaches nearby
    4) rent a car. there is a bus network and a rail network which you can totally use for long trips inside the country. but when you get where you're staying, rent a small car to get around easily.
    5) safety-wise, nothing to worry about except in immigrant neighborhoods. and even in those, its much safer than the ghettos in american cities. also you'll be pleasantly surprised at the almost complete absence of huge homeless camps/open drug markets.
    6) drinks in bars/clubs are kinda iffy. also, expensive. if possible, pre-drink.
    7) athens sucks ass, except for the museums and historical stuff. if you're not into that shit, go elsewhere. athenian nightlife is good, but not worth dealing with a 4+mil pop city with horrible traffic and heat.
    pick some smaller cities, preferably close to the sea (pretty low bar in greece, admittedly). preferably also with a university (again, pretty low bar)

      How's the cooming in Greece? Does Tinder work well?

        >How's the cooming in Greece?
        easiest pickings is drunk tourist chicks
        especially brits, doesn't get easier than that
        greek girls are moderately difficult, i'd say. less b***hy than american girls back home, probably, pretty average for EU girls
        you'll probably get some bonus points for being foreign (only applies to westEU and americans, obviously), but nothing absurd, nothing like you read in the phillipines or africa coomthreads

        >Does Tinder work well?
        as well as the rest of the western world

    Give it to me straight, bros. How lame is Santorini.

      It's relatively lame, also there were Chinese tourists that were annoying but I went before covid. I fear putting out names lest they are ruined as well, but threre are other cycladic islands that are much more enjoyable and soulful. But it depends on whether you like tourist-oriented stuff, Santorini was still nice.

            Haha funny because you guys are always mixed. I have not seen an american who doesnt look like hes made out of the worst leftover genes from africa and europe.

            And its not even the looks, you dont know shit. Typical yankee only knows about baseball and where mexico is, they usually think that europe is a country.

            My white ancestors are smiling at me, can you say the same, mutt?

    I’ve been to more than 40 countries, I’ve never been to a city more eclectic, alive and exciting than Athens.

    It’s a city worth spending a month in.
