This is part one of multi-episode series on travel in Greece. My expectations for Greece as a travel destination were low due to negative reviews on-line and horror stories of refugee inundation. Happily, the nattering “nabobs of negativism” were totally wrong, and Greece, including Athens, is spectacular. This is a reminder that on-line opinions are of little value when it comes to travel.
This first video gives a scooters-eye view of the island of Aegina, which lies about an hour from Athens by ferry. I figured out a way to hold my iPhone in my teeth while driving a scooter so you can see the Greek countryside and seashore as if you were piloting the speeding scooter yourself.
