Since beginning of my solo traveling, Europe has been on top of my list like many fellow travelers. But tiresome visa process always seemed like a daunting task. After waiting for 3 long years to visit my favorite continent. I finally gathered courage to try my luck. For I was afraid what if visa was rejected? As we know if schengen visa is rejected 3 times you can probably kiss goodbye to dream of visiting Europe.
Reasons for choosing Greece:
1)If you go through list of visa approval rate of schengen countries Greece is at 4th position with 98% approval rate. First 3 being Estonia with a 99% rate, Slovakia 98.4%, Poland 98.3%. Among these Greece felt like most exciting country for first visit.
2)The history of Greece is very rich. Being the birth place of western civilization, democracy, Western philosophy, the Olympic Games, Western literature, historiography, political science, major scientific and mathematical principles, and Western drama it is the place to start.
3)Witnessing magnificence of Acropolis has long been a dream. Also who doesn’t want to witness breath taking sunset of Santorini at least once in their lifetime? The other worldly Meteora is nothing like anything you’ve ever seen or will ever see.
