Hi everyone I am currently living in Calgary, Canada and I am Greek.

I have been to Greece 4 times now to travel and work with different organizations with refugees and immagrants from countries around the Medi Sea.

NOW I want to backpack and "dissapear" with my best friend for a while and really experience the simple and basic things in life and the world. SO my plan was to goback to Greece since i know the language and the land, plus the wheather is, well, "better" than Calgary.... lol

But I really would like some ideas of where to go, and settle in for a couple months!
Any suggestions are welcome we are both young, and by young I mean I will be 21 in the summer and my bro will be 19. At one point we had an idea to go to China and jsut live there, working for our room and food, up in the mountains of course and villages. To get back to simple life away from "America" if anyone knows what I mean, I would really value anyone's input, even if you advise me to stay and work, haha.

oh, haha and money is no object in ideas. let'er rip!

Thanks, pce and love to all, and to all a good flight. wink.gif

Hey, welcome to the forums.

I moved this to the Greece forum where you might get some better answers.

Until you get an answer, check out some blogs first and see what you think.

Oh thanks, I guess. This was my intro, and it wasn't about Greece, but your the mod I guess.

Is it possible to leave it in the intro since it will actually significantly reduce my chances of getting the response I was looking for?

Welcome to our group, Skynz. We look forward to your tales of Greece on this forum.


Canada is another good place for backpacking. Try the national & provincial parks: Jasper NP in Alberta, Tweedmuir PP in BC, Prince Albert NP in Saskatchewan, Swan Pelican PF in Manitoba, Algonquin PP in Ontario, etc. And there's pleny of wide open spaces in the Northwest Territories.

Also there are many remote and traditional Greek islands like Folegrandros or Milos that most travelers don't have time to experience, but you would.

Enjoy fantasying over all the alternatives; you can't make a bad choice because they are all good.



Wow, thanks, your absolutely right about Paros and the islands though, the land on many of them is being bought up and either developed or fenced off, that hasn't stopped me before from exploring... but, the point of dissapearing would be no "authorities" would care to find me... Besides the Greek police are lets say, less than enthusiastic about people in the woods, they could care less as long as they are not starting the fires, know what I mean? At least that has been my experience so far.

Have you been to any of the big wigs, like Crete, Zakynthos, and Rhodes? I need to venture there eventually, but is it mostly tourism now? More so than others I mean, I know it depends on the season, but you can tell the people are different in places less common to travellers. Also by the prices haha smile.gif

Any ideas... if I could purchase a small house or "hut" anywhere in Greece? I do have my Greek ID and Passport so no sticky stuff there but is anyone wanting someone who will take care of the house/land??? Cause that would help big time, it is alot to ask, but it also never hurts to ask...

Hope to hear more great ideas soon, thanks so far!
