Why buy a property in Greece?

A short little 'fun' story for you...

When God finished creating the world he called upon all nations to visit his office from 8 am to 5 pm to allocate them their respective countries.

Right on the dot, the English were first at the head of the queue, followed by the Germans and so on and so on. By 5 pm God gave all the countries away.

The Greeks were nowhere to be seen.

By 6.30 pm God hears a knock on the door. He opens it and there in front of him, a Greek was standing.


God said: “What do you want?”

Greek: “I want my piece of land.”

God: “You are too late. I gave everything away. None is left.”

Greek: “But God, you promised me.”

God: “You should have come on time as the others did, why didn’t you, who do you think you are?”

Greek: “I am your child. You made me the way I am. It is not my fault I am late. I was at the bouzouki bar last night and went  to bed in the early hours this morning and I was very late to wake up.”

God: “It is not my problem.”

Greek: “Oh?… It is not mine either. When you were making me, you gave me this soul. You made me the way I am.”

God thought for a while………….And then he said: “Ok…you scoundrel, there is a piece of land, not very large. It is mountainous and is surrounded by the sea on three sides. It doesn’t produce much, it doesn’t have many resources.

I was saving it for my self, for my retirement. If you want it you can have it, but never complain I didn’t give you much. Go and do your best from it.”


The moral of the story:

God was saving Greece for himself but gave the land fit only for Gods to the Greeks.

And ever since everybody wants a piece of this Godly land.


Come…..come and keep company with the people that enjoy the land of the gods, even for a while. Be a God yourself, even if is just for a little part of your life…
