I'm wondering what to do with myself. Im almost 20yrs old, and was going to Kos in April for 7 months to work the summer season, but unfortunately, the friend i was going with is now unable to come with me.
I really want to do this but i am a bit wary of going alone. I don't really want to go to greece by myself, i thought maybe spain or Portugual. Can anyone help? Does anyone know of some looking for staff?Its only 2 months away from when im supposed to go and im so confused as to what i should do.
PS I just noticed you said you would go in April - that would be a great time. And to improve your confidence a bit more - Greece is safe to go round alone. I have been to the mainland on my own - and wandered round Kos on my own too (altho' went to Kos with a friend), I found people respected you there and were friendly - at the worst tho' I got the odd beep of the horn and whistle to come over and talk to a couple of men - but that's because they tend to be a bit chauvanistic over there. They don't actually mean any harm. I went for a two hour walk on my own - I came to no harm, also it is safe to walk round alone in the main tourist areas. Maybe at night it is a good idea not to wander out to dimly lit areas or out of the tourist area - but that's just common sense. Also to just follow your instincts I love greece and after my RTW tour (which greece may be included) - I intend to visit there again and again. A typical example is that there is hardly any graffiti anywhere (except Athens) - yachts and boats are left out untied in the harbour (because no-one would damage them or steal them) and buildings and streets are clean. That is because people out there are more respectful and trusting and they have reason to be - I found Greeks so friendly and generally there's alot less chance of you being mugged or worse out there than there is that of Britain - greece and her islands are safer than britain. Just a reminder tho' that you should always keep common sense - such as not too much cash carried round with you and dimly lit areas etc. etc. - just to keep your sensible head on ya and you should be fine
hi. just wanted to say i agree entirely with Rach-a. i've been to crete and rhodes and the poeple there are so friendly its amazing. definatley intend goin back to greece soon!
