Hello! I'm in the US and my business is finally doing well enough for me to pack up my laptop and hit the road. I just need to be able to get online. I'm thinking Greek Isles in June and July for the sun, beaches, and girls. I've never traveled outside of the US and Mexico before. I'm 24. Does anyone have any advice?

im also 24 and i did the greek isles in may of 02' ...
the only advice i would have for you is
a)leave you laptop at home. they have little internet cafe's all over the place. (when i was there i didnt see any wifi)
b)pack light. (your in the med you dont even need any cloths)
c)dont plan your trip. the only thing you need to know is how to get to Peiraias so you can get on the ferry and on to the greek isles.

d)once you get off the ferry you will be hounded by about 30 hotel owners all you need to do is tell them you want the room on the beach with a private balcony and you only wanna spend 10 euros. the owners that have it will have some cool pics of what they got and you just pic.

there are 2 places you may want to check out:
when you get off the ferry on Ios look for Far out camping http://www.faroutclub.com/frames/camping_frames.html
great location cheep and the party is always going and if its not going on there they will drive you to where the party is going on.

if you go to Mykonos check out Paradise beach. be sure that its paradise beach and not super paradise beach. super paradis i believe is a gay club of some sort.

if your into the party life these to places got it going on. there are some clubs on mykonos that only open at 3 am and you sit in a hot tub with 3 honeys and watch the sun come up.

liquid,

Sounds pretty damn good to me.

The problem with using the computers in internet cafes is they could easily have keystroke loggers installed by some rip off artist and I've got to be able to manage all of my business stuff. I wonder how wireless access is in those places these days. I'll start another thread about that.

I'm going to pack so light it's ridiculous.

Ok, no planning.

That camping looks like no camping I've done before.
