Hi everyone, i'm in the same boat as all of you it seems. i'm mike, a student from england and i'm looking for affordable accommodation. i will be working as a volunteer at the hellikon arena. if anybody would like to share an apartment/house for the three weeks (1 week before(training) and the 2 weeks of the actual olympics please reply to me here.

i'm a nice, friendly, easy-going lad looking forward to the experience but need to find somewhere pretty soon. i am happy to share with anyone and everyone (hope that doesn't make me sound too desperate!) i speak english, french, german and am learning spanish (doing a degree in languages at nottingham uni)

if anyone has found anywhere and needs an extra housemate to share costs or if you are looking and need someone else, i'm your man!
thanks for reading and i hope everyone gets somewhere!

So far, the only affordable/available lodging I've found was at two campsites (one of which is 30 min. outside Athens). There are also rooms on the islands outside Athens (40min. by ferry) for around EU100 for a double - more than I can afford.
