Well guys what do you think? A lot of us have been there and know what that place is like... They're offered me a job there for next summer and continuing if I want... Sounds amazing, a summer in Greece, But I'm not sure if I could handle the crazy party life they live. perhaps if I did something like renting the Quads or something instead of bartending or whatever. Hmm anyways let me know your ideas... I'm think the biggest pro is the KICK ASS TAN I'd get being there a whole summer.

Well, I've never been there, but it still sounds like one helluvan opportunity. As long as it's not putting something much bigger/better on hold, then I say go for it!!!

I talked to a lot of the staff when I was there and they were definately enjoying their employment there but a lot of them were getting quite sick of it all...its kinda a joke....and it could be awesome or it could be absolute shit depending on which job you are given....but hey why not...a summer in greece would be awesome....the only thing you have to consider is....would you want a more cultural work abroad experience or something fun, relaxing, but not in-depth like working at the Pink Palace......

Hey!

Well as far as accomadation goes you could consider one of the WORKAWAY options........you might be able to get them to toss in some spending cash for extra work or something....

Or you can always try convincing a nice bar owner to let you try the bartending thing.........

AND.......Amsterdam always has availability for Red Light District women.....I hear the pay is good.....haha.....ok not funny.......sorry........
