11. Greece

Dodging riots in Athens and other stories...

Greece is an economic basket case but we enjoyed our time there - it is easy to be seduced into the relaxed lifestyle - too relaxed to run a decent economy apparently. Greece is also seemingly the world capital of Suzuki V Stroms so we were in good company and had plenty of other riders to chat with. Greece was where I serviced our bike on a sidewalk and in Mileage terms was close to the midpoint of our journey.

Our first night was spent wild camping on a beach...
On the last day when we left Athens, we were riding on the sidewalks and riding against one way traffic to try to get out in the face of striking and rioting people...
