Touring Greece - any updated experiences?

Hello Tourers,

I'm considering touring Greece in a few weeks yet have heard that since I wish to mainly sleep in the open (using my tent) it should now be less safe to do so. Any of you have experience with touring in Greece recently and can confirm/disconfirm this?

Hope things are well here at bikeforums

Jesper

No first hand experience but here's a CGOAB journal from the Summer of 2013. crazyguyonabike.com: Bicycle Touring: Highway to Heaven, by Dimitri Kaltsas

Doubt if you'll have any problem away from main urban areas.

Do a search for Telly on the Commuting subforum. He lives in Greece and posts in Commuting a lot. He should be able to provide you some first-hand info.

Hi both,

Thanks for your feedback - have contacted Telly to hear if he's got some information & will read the CGOAB link Caretaker posted.

Cheers

Jesper
