Of course I had heard of and seen ATV’s around, both in upstate New York and in various island countries. However, I first stepped on one on our most recent trip to Greece, where we honeymooned for 2 and a half glorious weeks.
Originally planning on renting a car for the most of our trip (which we did for a few days in Crete), we opted for the ATV instead. Was it cheaper? Yes. Did it look like more fun? Yes. Was it totally safe? Probably not. Did we know how to drive it? No.
So, we rented one anyways.
IF ONLY WE HAD THESE IN NEW YORK. Although with all the traffic lights and stop signs, an ATV ride probably wouldn’t be as much fun. Plus, what do you do when it rains? Oh, mother nature happens on the Greek Islands too? You would never know.
We could have rented a real scooter, but yeah, we just aren’t coordinated enough for one. Even the ATV was pushing it a bit for me at first.
Some other transportation we found in Greece that I thought would be fun as well:
