For those of you that are planning to visit Greece this summer:

Even if Greece finds itself in a very difficult position financially, as I am sure, everyone who's staying on Planet Earth has already noticed, it is still a peaceful and quiet place to be. There hasn't been a riot for months now, as elections are the best way people's will can be heard in a democracy. And we are about to have our 2nd elections in 2 months.

Even when there were riots, they happened for only specific days, at the centre of Athens ONLY, meaning that it was easy to avoid them, by simply NOT VISITING the city centre at that time, as most prudent Greeks did!

Also, the general attitude is still very peaceful and friendly towards tourists, as it should always be. Ordinary people especially tourists, are obviously not to blame for politician's faults. Moreover, in the islands the situation is completely different, as residents are always more relaxed and easy-going, compared to the hectic environment in the capital. Finally, due to the financial crisis, beaches and places are going to be less packed, and prices on average will be a little cheaper than previous years (unfortunately not a lot cheaper due to tax hikes, general cost hikes etc).

So, do visit Greece, you won't regret it! :-)
