    The Greek isles are beautiful, but once you get on the country proper, it's pretty run down, with lots of graffiti, even on historical artifacts.

    Just my opinion, and that is from a tourists point of view. Maybe I went in with too high of expectations.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Sounds like Aruba. Absolute paradise if you're at one of the good hotels. Hop in a car and head away from the hotel area and you'll wish you hadn't.

    We've been in Athens for the past week. The Acropolis and the Olympic Stadium (the one used in the first modern Olympics in 1896) are amazing. We wanted to attend a concert in the Herodes ampitheatre at the Acropolis, but it was sold out. Very cool city, but I'm ready to go home tonight.

    I had an Aunt who went to one of the islands back in the 70s after my Uncle passed. She was robbed at gun point and luckily not harmed. My dad had to send her some money I think.

    That's not cool. Athens is remarkably safe at all hours of the day and night.

    man. I've heard that about so many of those islands. I used to know someone who shared a cottage with other investors in Jamaica. They said you pretty much had to stick to your area, otherwise yikes.

    been thinking about selling off one of my businesses but I have to reinvest the proceeds so I was looking at condos as rentals. More of a passive income situation to take me into retirement. I'm looking mostly in the US St Pete Florida area, Myrtle Beach, Gulf Shores......but there seems to be some really good deals in St Croix....but I know nothing about St Croix.

    Tim Duncan is from St Croix. My wife and I went to St Thomas on our honeymoon. Those two islands are very close to each other. Beautiful places in the Caribbean.

    As a general rule, I stick with US, British, or Italian territories as vacation spots. But I have been to Iceland. That was interesting.

    sucks to hear these bad things about Greece - not much interest in Europe really but I thought Greece looked like it could be a good place to visit. Guess not. I'm sure their money problems haven't helped, but I sure wish someone would figure out why people who have almost nothing feel the need to trash what they do have.

    I haven't enjoyed Greece as much as I liked London, Paris and Batcelona, but it has still been a cool experience. Maui is still my favorite vacation spot. Paradise.

    I've been to Crete many times. While yes, it is a bit run down, the wines and food can't be beat! One of my favorite memories is walking the streets early in the morning and going past a restaurant that was warming up a sautee pan with olive oil in it. The smell was incredible.
