Greece, An empire in decay

Video

It was not easy to enter Greece. Aparently the border-guards felt way superior over a motorhome with Thai plates and at first they refused to let us enter because our insurance papers were digital (welcome to the 21st century), but after a helpfull Turkish customs-official printed them out for us, the Greek could not find any other reasons to detain us and grudgingly let us enter the EU.

Georgia: Ex-Soviet with a mind of its own

Georgia is a bit of an odd duck. It is ex-Soviet, but has its own script which looks very exotic. It has an interesting “motto”, which is embodied in the image of a woman holding a glas of wine in one hand and a sword in the other. No, she is not an agressive drunk: “Guest are welcomed if they come in peace, but if they come with bad intentions… “
It is also the only country I know of that does not require a visa for anyone and alows visitors to stay for one year. They are not kidding with their motto.
